We have another cool news for you: NEAR — the token of the NEAR Protocol platform was added on KickEX exchange.
The NEAR coin is already available for purchase and sale on KickEX in the NEAR/USDT pair!
Russian programmers Alexander Skidanov and Ilya Polosukhin created NEAR Protocol, an open-source blockchain on Proof-of-Stake. It is a decentralized platform for creating web-applications. The project was launched only a year ago, but since then the company has grown from a 2-person startup to one of the most discussed crypto-projects of the year in which former employees of Facebook, Google, Nuatic work. They inspired Andreessen Horowitz and obtained funding for $21.6 million.
Alexander and Ilya are innovators who aim to create the Open Web. Their idea is that in the future a person can’t lose access to their data, even if the service stops working.
NEAR token is part of the NEAR Protocol ecosystem, which was added for transaction processing and data storage fees, launching validator nodes in the network through NEAR token staking, and conducting network management voting.
More advantages of NEAR:
- The total value of the token reached $2.3 million;
- At the moment, the NEAR Protocol token is on the 53rd place in the CoinMarketCap rating;
- The creators of the NEAR Protocol were able to provide high throughput capacity, speed and good cross-compatibility for decentralized applications;
- Vitalik Buterin (the creator of Ethereum), as TechCrunch writes, admitted that the NEAR Protocol can make a serious competition for his project.
We are very happy to see our compatriots with a really worthy project on our exchange. And we are even more pleased that our users will now be able to buy NEAR on KickEX!
And don’t forget trading on KickEX has become even more convenient: on August 31th, the KICK Crypto Exchange & Wallet app for iOS became available in the App Store!
