NEAR Wallet Week 48 Update:

Brief Summary:

  • We are keeping our monthly growth in the two digits, yay!
  • A lot of minor UI improvements, in preparation for more substantial changes later this month.


  • 1.71 million registered users, +15% since last update (2 weeks).
  • ~330,000 monthly active users, +11% since last update (2 weeks)
  • UI improvements! 

Challenges and Blockers

  • The simplified account creation process, done by giving an email address, is again under spam. Selfish members of the community are still exploiting this feature to create fake accounts, taking the few $near that are given to register the name and do the first login. As a result, this feature will be soon retired, the only way to create a named account will be to pay for it. Also, all new accounts will be “implicit”, with the 64 characters string.

Action Items

  • Release a first version of the new onboarding without the free naming feature
  • Keep working on the new recovery email feature and release a demo on Staging
  • Finalize and merge the NFT transfers and the new NFT mint event


  • SputnikDAO metrics:
    • Total distributed all-time: 989,598 $NEAR 
    • Total transactions: 17633
    • Total DAOs: 246
    • TVL: 114,816 $NEAR
