Top 10 NEAR projects (23/03/2022)


In this number of Decentralized Recommendations we bring you a list of the Top 10 projects in the NEAR blockchain.

What is NEAR?

NEAR is a collective, foundation, and development platform built on top of a layer 1 blockchain.

If you want to learn more about this protocol and in the process earn your first $NEAR, you can join the Learn Near Club.

To use all the applications that we will show you in the list, it is necessary to create an account in the NEAR protocol.

Now yes, with some context, let's go to the Top 10!

#1 - Pumpopoly


What is Pumpopoly?

Pumpopoly is a virtual real estate simulator game. It can be played on all devices and is designed in pixel art on an animated HTML5 canvas.

The gameplay is simple. Players collect a salary from the treasury when moving on the map (Drive&Claim). Players who park on land owned by other players pay rent to the landlord (owner of the land). Parking is free at all city properties.

Its native token is $PUMPOPOLY.

Currently, the game offers 5 types of unique properties - minted on the NEAR blockchain, and unlocked as your credit score increases (which increases when you invite new players). There are 256 pixel art variations for each property type, with 1024 variations each, improving rental income as well.

The bulk of the community chats on Discord and giveaways are being made on Twitter.

Nice gem.

#2 -


What is is a multipurpose DeFi platform where you can trade coins from the NEAR ecosystem and other protocols; delegate (staking); create liquidity pairs and even learn about the risks of decentralized finance.

Ref takes advantage of NEAR's low fees, the finality of its transactions is one to two seconds, and it allows the implementation of smart contracts in the Rust programming language.

Its native token is $REF.

A code change recently went into effect and now users can add liquidity to the platform directly with the NEAR wallet.

Connect with the community through Twitter.

#3 - Paras


What is Paras?

Paras is a marketplace platform where you can create and trade digital collectibles - read NFTs.

It is built on top of NEAR and IPFS/Filecoin code, allowing digital files to be immutable and its proof-of-ownership recorded - for years to come - on the blockchain.

Creators can publish their art collections and generate income on NEAR. Do you like to create art? Cheer up! :)

Its native token is $PARAS.

Something that I liked in detail is that it has a section dedicated to Comics. Yes, NFT comics, illustrated from the heart of the community's creativity.

#4 - Near Blocks


What is Near Blocks?

Near Blocks is a functional block explorer and analytics platform on the NEAR protocol.

By using it you can obtain the information contained into the blocks and in the transactions in detail. It also includes a section of graphs and statistics regarding the ecosystem and even an API of the price of NEAR in real time for free use.

#6 - Sender


What is Sender?

Sender is a NEAR wallet that works in a browser extension.

As advertised on its social media, its goal is to be a secure and seamless wallet for DeFi and NFT users who interact in the ecosystem.

#8 - Aurora


What is Aurora?

Aurora is an Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) hosted on the NEAR protocol that allows bridging between blockchain protocols. That is, it allows you to exchange native NEAR tokens against those of the Ethereum ecosystem and use the applications of both ecosystems.

It uses the Rainbow Bridge service to do the above.

This ecosystem's vibrating. Please note that the order of the projects does not necessarily reflect their intrinsic value or potential. I have ordered them that way according to my opinion and the numbering of X or Y may change in the future. It will always be necessary to do your own research (DYOR) when investing or exploring into crypto projects.
