The NEAR Protocol is a decentralized application platform that aims to make apps as easy to use as those found on the internet today. It's a layer-one blockchain that was created as a community-run cloud computing platform, and it addresses some of the issues that have plagued rival blockchains, such as transaction speeds, throughput, and compatibility. The NEAR Protocol produces a developer and user-friendly platform, which is great for DApps. The network uses the Nightshade Proof-of-Stake (PoS) consensus process to guarantee dynamic scalability and fee stability. It created various tools for developers and end users such as NEAR SDKs, Gitpod for NEAR, NEAR Explorer.
