NEAR Protocol, a blockchain platform, has revealed the arrival of the world’s first Blockchain Operating System (BOS), which will offer a standard layer for browsing and exploring open web experiences that are interoperable with any blockchain.
The BOS is defined as a composable interface for Web3 that will enable end-users to simply and frictionlessly explore all of Web3’s potential in one seamless experience and is available on alpha.near.org.
End users may discover Web3 experiences, social media, and news in one location.
Everyone in the Open Web ecosystem, according to the group, can construct their own frontends (i.e., their own versions of alpha.near.org) that are interoperable with the blockchain of their preference.
This implies that creators from any ecosystem may construct components in just a few lines of code and use fast onboarding to develop new and customized Web3 experiences.
According to NEAR Protocol, this is an industry first. With the addition of composable frontends to the tech stack, NEAR has evolved into the Blockchain Operating System, enabling seamless, one-time onboarding and eliminating friction points such as creating accounts for each experience, all while supercharging development from a collection of over 1,800 components.
The approach has the added benefit of allowing developers to construct and write interfaces in a single environment, as well as for a variety of components to create apps more rapidly and effectively than ever before.
With this step, NEAR claims it hopes to make its platform the entry point for the ‘Open Web’ for both users and developers, and to make Web3 and Web2 simpler to access and traverse than ever before.
According to NEAR, the platform is expanding on its blockchain, which currently has significant advantages such as simplicity, a customizable account format, and human-readable accounts, which let users select whatever name they want rather than a string of letters and numbers.
“This has resulted in a robust NEAR ecology with over 23 million accounts and over a thousand projects under construction.”
