NEAR Protocol (NEAR) is listed on the Crypto.com App today, 22 December 2020. NEAR joins a growing list of 80+ cryptocurrencies and stablecoins on our App, such as Bitcoin (BTC), Ether (ETH), XRP, Cardano (ADA), Chainlink (LINK), VeChain (VET), USD Coin (USDC), as well as Crypto.com Coin (CRO).
Near Protocol is a decentralized platform where developers can host serverless applications and smart contracts which have easy access to open finance networks and benefit from an ecosystem of open web components.
Unlike other blockchain-based platforms, the Near Protocol has been built from the ground up to be the easiest in the world for both developers and their end users while still providing the scalability and security necessary to serve those users. Specifically, NEAR is designed to make it easier to build decentralized applications, especially as a developer familiar only with “traditional” web or app concepts. Onboard users with a smooth experience, even if they aren’t familiar with crypto, tokens, keys, wallets or other artifacts of this ecosystem. Scale your application since the underlying platform automatically expands capacity via sharding without additional costs or effort on your part.
Crypto.com App users can now purchase NEAR at true cost with USD, EUR, GBP and 20+ fiat currencies, and spend it at over 60M merchants globally using the Crypto.com Visa Card.
