Best place to purchase NEAR at true cost with zero fees and markups

NEAR Protocol (NEAR) is listed on the Crypto.com App today, 22 December 2020. NEAR joins a growing list of 80+ cryptocurrencies and stablecoins on our App, such as Bitcoin (BTC), Ether (ETH), XRP, Cardano (ADA), Chainlink (LINK), VeChain (VET), USD Coin (USDC), as well as Crypto.com Coin (CRO).

Near Protocol is a decentralized platform where developers can host serverless applications and smart contracts which have easy access to open finance networks and benefit from an ecosystem of open web components.

Unlike other blockchain-based platforms, the Near Protocol has been built from the ground up to be the easiest in the world for both developers and their end users while still providing the scalability and security necessary to serve those users. Specifically, NEAR is designed to make it easier to build decentralized applications, especially as a developer familiar only with "traditional" web or app concepts. Onboard users with a smooth experience, even if they aren't familiar with crypto, tokens, keys, wallets or other artifacts of this ecosystem. Scale your application since the underlying platform automatically expands capacity via sharding without additional costs or effort on your part.

With NEAR added to the Crypto.com App, users can now purchase it at true cost with no fees - credit card and bank transfer both supported. As Crypto.com also offers a Visa Card, this adds additional utility to NEAR as users can easily convert cryptocurrencies into fiat currencies and spend at over 60m merchants globally.

Note:
- NEAR is not available for residents of the United States.
