What is Near Protocol?

Near protocol is a layer-1 blockchain that aims at delivering more interoperability, low fees, better transaction speed, and higher throughput than Ethereum. Its programming language, Rust, makes the protocol different in its unique approach to Sharding and use of the Doomslug consensus mechanism. The near protocol was created by Alex Skidanov and Illia Polosukhin in 2018, but the mainnet didn't go live until 2020.

What is NEAR? 

The NEAR token keeps the network's security by paying validators. It is also used to power smart contracts, Dapps, and transactions on the protocol. Until recently, becoming a validator and holding were the two ways to earn, but now, staking has been introduced to enable everyone to earn passively on their holdings. Stakers can deposit their NEAR in a validator pool to earn some yields over time. 

NEAR can also be used for governance on the protocol. For example, developments and marketing strategies can be proposed and deliberated on using the Near token, or the token's voting rights can be delegated to validators to make decisions on their behalf.

Should I buy the NEAR token?

The projects offering smart contract integration are becoming the norm. Still, a project launched a year ago to be in the top ten protocols offering smart contracts makes it worth looking into. It is not without its risks, as it is unclear how Ethereum's fork into the proof-of-stake network will affect all other projects offering smart contracts and Dapps integration. However, its market cap of about $5 billion is worth risking some funds into it.
