Who are the founders of NEAR Protocol?

NEAR protocol was spearheaded by developer Alexander Skidanov and Artificial Intelligence researcher Illia Polosukhin. Skidanov started his career at Microsoft in 2009. Polosukhin, on the other hand, has more than 10 years of industry experience in technology. He spent three years at Google, where he was a major contributor to the development of the core search code.


What makes NEAR coin unique?

The NEAR protocol is unique because it uses advanced sharding technologies that can be used to scale its network infinitely.

The blockchain is similar to the “cloud-based” infrastructure that software developers develop applications, but the cloud is no longer controlled by a single company running a large data centre.

The coin has multiple utilities, which make it special. It is used:

• To pay transaction fees

• For staking

• To become a validator

• Within the dApps that the NEAR

• Protocol is used to create


How many NEAR coins are in circulation?

Current there are 812,963,867 NEAR coins in circulation.


How is the NEAR Protocol secured?

The NEAR protocol uses the Proof-of-Stake mechanism of validating transactions. So users have to stake their NEAR coins to earn the right to verify transactions. Since nodes are incentivizes for good actions like staking and penalties applied for bad actions, the security of the blockchain is ensured to a large extent.

To further decentralization and security, a block generation mechanism called Doomslug is used. Doomslug works by having a set of participants take turns to produce and broadcast blocks on the chain. Once a certain height is reached, the participant generating the block gets changed and another one takes their place.
