Getting Started on NEAR
Getting Started | NEAR Wiki
You've landed on the NEAR Wiki, thanks for coming! This open-source, collaborative wiki connects you to information about everything from the protocol, usage, infrastructure, opportunities, and guilds. The contributions to this Wiki have been made by the NEAR Community and members of the NEAR Foundation team.
The Beginner's Guide to the NEAR Blockchain
Welcome! This guide is intended to help anyone interested in understanding what NEAR actually is. That includes new users, curious community members, prospective partners and new core contributors to the NEAR Collective. I'll provide a plain-English understanding of what we do, why we do it, and how you can learn what you need in order to get directly involved.
The Evolution of the Open Web
Developers have been pitched Blockchain technology for many years based on a hand-wavy set of "use cases" which are tied to unclear definitions of how the technology works, what it's actually good for and how the platforms that employ it are meaningfully different from each other. This has justifiably created both confusion and skepticism.
Guilds are communities that make up the greater NEAR community. Each guild shares a specific vision and mission related to driving a more open, interconnected and consumer-empowered world. Learn about the process of creating your own community.
The NEAR White Paper
The following sections will describe the approach NEAR takes to designing and implementing the core technology of its system. Wherever possible, we will use language that is accessible and we will describe relevant sections starting from first principles, values and design intent before digging into their technical implementation.

The rise of NEAR Protocol as a project led ecosystem
Until now, NEAR Protocol has quietly grown as a scalable, proof-of-stake network. This week, the Layer 1 blockchain, hit a milestone with the NEAR token reaching an all-time high of $18.70. This may be in part because NEAR has started making the headlines as Forbes named Near Protocol as the third fastest-growing cryptocurrency ecosystem for developers in 2021.
Near Raises $150M From Major Crypto Investment Firms
One of crypto's most cash-rich ecosystems just got a little richer as it prepares for a major decentralized finance ( DeFi) push. In October, Near's Aurora, which will enable developers to fork Ethereum-based contracts and deploy Solidity code on the chain, raised $12 million.
How Octopus Network Built A Web 3.0 Incubator
The Octopus Network states its mission clearly at the beginning of the Octopus Network Whitepaper. Octopus Network is working towards a future where all crypto networks can coordinate mass volume transactions between people - bypassing 3rd-party intermediaries - to drive the Internet into a more open, fair, and secure era - aka Web3.0.
