NEAR protocol releases new SDK to 20 million Javascript developers

In an official blog post NEAR protocol has announced the release of a new Javascript SDK that will enable 20 million developers to build decentralized applications. The bold move will increase adoption within the NEAR ecosystem.

Bringing Web2 developers into the world of Web3 is a critical component of growing the base of Web3 users. NEAR protocol unveiled the details at ETH Toronto, affirming its commitment to accelerate and democratize Web3 development.

Javascript is the world’s most popular code

Javascript is the world’s most popular coding language. According to the popular technology platform, Stack Overflow, 69.8% of programmers prefer to code using Javascript. It can be used in all popular browsers and can be used to build mobile apps. It also comes pre-loaded with useful libraries and has an easy set-up. NEAR prides itself on offering the same ease of use when unlocking blockchain capabilities and developing smart contracts. 

With the new NEAR’s Javascript SDK, more than 20 million developers can join the 2.5 million Rust and solidity developments in the Web3 movement and build fast, scalable, user-friendly applications. 

“Developers can spend less time learning a new language and more time building their application in a language they already know. Millions of developers already know how to program in JavaScript; enabling this group to build novel applications on NEAR is a critical step in achieving our vision of a billion users interacting with NEAR,” says Illia Polosukhin, Founder of NEAR.

Developers can learn more about the SDK with the NEAR start guide. NEAR is a layer 1 blockchain focused on fast transactions and scalability.
