Near (Sharding & DAO as unique features)
Avalanche (DeFi yields & NFT partners)
Our role models are Ethereum (community & culture), Starkware (ZKProofs & research) and Cosmos (Wasm & cross-chain), but which other smart contract platforms should we compete directly and win against?
Near communicates their work well. If they’re seen as our closest competitor, we need to see them as a benchmark for how we’re communicating. We need to study what works and what doesn’t work in the way they position themselves, and articulate Harmony’s unique value proposition more clearly.
Polkadot (Parachain & developer grants)
Polygon (ZKProofs & EVM ecosystem)
Solana (Centralized exchanges & DeFi)
Terra (DeFi ecosystem & stablecoins)
