NEAR Protocol Development Services

Build your next BIG idea with high-qualified NEAR protocol developers

NEAR is currently one of the demanded and popular blockchain protocol options used to power robust and performant dApps, exchanges, and NFT marketplaces. It offers numerous opportunities for smart contract developers and operates on the PoS consensus algorithm, giving its users the advantage of fast and cheap transaction processing. You can harness the power of NEAR for your own dApp development together with 4IRE, an official NEAR integrator and capable assistant at all stages of software development and launch. 

 

Let’s talk about your project implementation!

NEAR Protocol Advantages

Energy-Efficient

NEAR is one of the first blockchains that has managed to operate in a climate-neutral way due to its PoS consensus algorithm. Other blockchains have a considerable carbon footprint and are only at the beginning of their path to eco-friendliness and sustainability. But with NEAR, you can easily launch new energy-efficient projects without sustainability concerns and pressures. For comparison, the CO2 emissions connected with the NEAR protocol’s use are 200,000 lower than Bitcoin’s.

Secure

The top-tier security level of the NEAR protocol is achieved by using a unique stake election mechanism during transaction processing. NEAR uses a specific form of a PoS mechanism called Threshold PoS, or TPoS. This approach enables more randomized and secure validator selection that minimizes the risk of bias or manipulation. Besides, NEAR established a collaborative partnership with Elliptic in February 2022 to enhance on-chain security and forensics.

Developer-Friendly

The entry barriers to NEAR development are low, with coders specializing in different programming languages able to use NEAR in their projects. Smart contracts for NEAR apps and platforms can be written in community-supported, widespread languages, such as Rust and AssemblyScript, which are fed into compilation software (WebAssembly) afterward. The protocol also has built-in bridges that simplify the developers’ work and enable better interoperability.

Super-Fast

Using NEAR to develop your next blockchain project guarantees that your platforms and apps work really fast. The architecture of NEAR enables the unparalleled speed of transaction processing, which contributes to good UX and fuels the adoption of NEAR-powered solutions by larger numbers of users. Therefore, if you use NEAR for your project, you can be confident about instant token transfers and transaction completion regardless of the system’s load.

Cost-Effective

The costs of developing NEAR projects and using them as a regular customer are lower compared to other blockchain options. The average commission size for NEAR apps’ ad platforms’ users is around 1,000 times lower than that of Ethereum, making the on-chain fees negligible. Besides, 30% of NEAR’s fees are allocated to the blockchain’s ecosystem development, giving it strong support and revealing the team’s commitment to sustainable growth.

Limitless Scalability

NEAR has addressed the problem of scalability typical for many other blockchain projects with the sharded infrastructure. The use of sharding enables unlimited scaling of any project, giving users an attractive combination of low fees and high processing speed. NEAR shards both state and processing for the sake of scaling, thus achieving frictionless capacity increases with new nodes’ participation. Besides, it has economically justified thresholds for scaling, which guarantees the ecosystem’s sustainability.

Launch NFT Marketplace on NEAR

NEAR has emerged as a viable alternative to Ethereum in terms of endless scalability without performance compromises. The NEAR protocol’s approach resolves this issue with the help of sharding, which enables exponential scaling and quick, decentralized processing of on-chain transactions. Its developer-friendly toolkit and low development cost make it an ideal tool for NFT marketplace development. 

NEAR gives access to DAO, DeFi, and NFT protocols, offering a broad ecosystem of innovative, performant projects. Creating an NFT marketplace with NEAR is easy and manageable, with many prominent platforms like Mintbase and Paras already using NEAR for this purpose. You can enable users to create and trade NFTs, transfer the minted NFTs to other marketplaces like OpenSea, and enjoy lower gas fees compared to Ethereum.

FAQ

What is NEAR protocol?

The NEAR blockchain protocol was launched by the NEAR Collective community of researchers and enthusiasts in 2018 as a brand-new approach to dApp development. It emerged as an alternative to Ethereum, which poses significant scalability limitations and has considerable on-chain gas fees. NEAR operates based on the Proof of Stake (PoS) consensus algorithm, which effectively reduces the internal gas fees and enhances the scalability of operations. Its unique block generation approach, termed “Doomslug,” was launched in 2019 to enable infinite scaling of on-chain transactions without problems with decentralization.

What are the prominent use cases of NEAR protocol?

Since the on-chain gas fees are low and sometimes even zero on NEAR, it is an ideal blockchain for NFT minting and trading. Other blockchains, such as Ethereum, face the problem of rising gas fees, which make the NFT creation and exchange an expensive business. NEAR, in its turn, allows unlimited scalability of apps without high fees, making NFT creation manageable and cost-effective. Thus, NEAR is gradually gaining popularity as a simple, scalable, and highly secure blockchain technology allowing creators of dApps and NFT marketplaces to give their users unrivaled use terms and negligible fees. Other use cases include DAOs and DeFi.

Why are scalable blockchains like NEAR necessary?

The scalability of blockchains usually comes at a price (which is exceptionally relevant for PoW protocols) – a high carbon footprint, high user fees, and low speed. NEAR is one of the first climate-neutral blockchains ready to undermine the traditional way of doing things on blockchain. Besides, NEAR resolves the long-standing problem of cross-chain compatibility. It is an effective move toward the multi-chain future because of the frictionless interoperability of NEAR-powered projects with Ethereum, Polkadot, Cosmos, and other existing blockchains. Therefore, blockchains like NEAR are vital for the progress of blockchain technology as they increase user access, improve user control of their money, and contribute to the technology’s sustainability.

What can I do with NEAR tokens?

The NEAR protocol has a native token, NEAR, that serves as an internal currency for on-chain transactions. Having some NEAR assets, you can access the growing number of NEAR-powered apps. You can transfer NEAR tokens between accounts or share them with other people wishing to join the NEAR community using NEAR Drops. Another way of using these tokens is passive income via staking; anyone in the NEAR community can stake their tokens in a specific validator’s pool to earn revenue from those tokens’ use. Validators typically receive a reward equaling 4.5% of the annualized NEAR token supply, sharing it with their investors.
