Build Apps and Earn NEAR with the NEAR Learn Pathway
The NEAR Learn Pathway by Figment allows developers to earn NEAR while gaining the knowledge they need to build the next killer NEAR application. We will be distributing $50K in NEAR to developers who actively complete tutorials and contribute to the community by creating their own. Learn more by reading below.
Why build on NEAR?
NEAR is a decentralized application platform that makes blockchain accessible to everyday people who are excited for the future of the Open Web. The vision of NEAR is a more private and secure web that puts people in full control of their money, data, and identity. NEAR’s purpose is to enable community-driven innovation to benefit people around the world.
- Easy to learn.
- Built for builders by builders.
- Fast and future proof.
Because of its design, NEAR is defined as a “builder’s blockchain” and has been optimized to provide substantial flexibility and performance for developers to build great experiences for their end users. This means that consumer-facing blockchain-backed apps are finally possible and the use cases of the Open Web like prediction markets, NFT marketplaces, and gaming applications can finally be realized.
At Figment, we care about the long term growth and longevity of the Web 3 ecosystem and we understand what developers need to build the next great decentralized application, which is why we have launched Figment Learn.
Learn provides developers with:
- Free and easy access to the protocols necessary to power their applications via DataHub, our highly available full node infrastructure.
- Access to written and streamable educational materials and a diverse community built around learning and fostering ecosystem development.
- Opportunities for developers to earn tokens for completing tutorials and contributing to the community.
We see Figment Learn as the Web 3 Knowledge base that will drive development and grow the Web 3 ecosystem to new heights.
