NEWSLETTER Edition #110

A weekly update on everything that moves NEAR Protocol
 Nº 110 ·  Tue 23 May, 2023

 

Hello NEAR community!



Wrapping our heads around the Blockchain Operating System (BOS) requires insights into its ability and potential.

 

This is why the NEARWEEK team has published the following must-read explaining why BOS is a lot more than just a decentralised front-end, creating the true Open Web experience for everyone.

 

As aptly put by Albert Einstein, 'Any fool can know. The point is to understand.'

 

Speak soon,
Mr. News
