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?
The project that has the closest offering from ours is Near. Polygon is tagging along with the ethereum ecosystem, which we are not part of, so it’s not a fair competiiton. Ava and solana are not using sharding, so less similar compared to Near. Terra is a application-centered blockchain, and that’s not what we are doing. Polkadot is a very different ecosystem and seems it’s not what our developers are considering as a alternative.
Polkadot (Parachain & developer grants)
Polygon (ZKProofs & EVM ecosystem)
Solana (Centralized exchanges & DeFi)
Terra (DeFi ecosystem & stablecoins)
