NEAR focuses on the far wider audience
Illia Polosukhin, the founder of NEAR, stressed in an interview on August 9 at the Korea Blockchain Week (KBW) that the move will expose the specialized field of blockchain development to a far wider audience.
“Before we had Solidity, so for Ethereum and other Layer 2s, we had Rust, which is what Solana and Near are mainly. And so Solidity has probably 100,000 developers who are familiar with it, and those who are active is even less. There is even less probably in Rust,” he stated.
Polosukhin continued by saying that anyone might use the JS SDKs, from students trying out blockchain technology to business professionals aiming to advance their projects.
It is noteworthy because a student can create an app without needing to master new skills and languages. Additionally, hiring developers will be simpler for business owners, allowing them to establish stronger, more efficient teams that can deliver products more quickly.
The idea behind NEAR is to create a highly powerful and flexible system that enables developers to create really anything, from very simple apps to complicated apps, Polosukhin explained.
NEAR protocol is also focusing on the DeFi sector, and in October last year, it launched a $800 million grants fund focusing on the DeFi and its ecosystem, as TheCoinRise reported.
