Over the past few months, it has been difficult to contain our excitement, however the time has come to let you in on a little secret. 

We are proud to officially announce a partnership with NEAR. In addition, ZEST will be the first product to launch on the NEAR Mainnet! 

In the world of blockchain, this is huge news that we believe will allow us to keep growing ZED and ZEST in tandem; a big win for our communities.

We are also giving away $200 USD to both the ZED and NEAR communities by simply completing the tasks below!

Back Yourself

NEAR has raised eyebrows all over the world and has seen, Vitalik Buterin, the Ethereum founder, to make statements to the effect that NEAR may represent a significant challenge to Ethereum at some point.

Adding fuel to the fire, NEAR is backed by some of the heaviest hitters in the blockchain space including a16z and Pantera Capital, giving comfort that we are all indeed in good company. 

Who and What is NEAR?

NEAR is an award-winning team of champion programmers whose main goal is to make building on the blockchain better, faster and safer. You are probably thinking, “here we go again; another blockchain claiming to be the best” and to be honest, we do not blame you, but hear us out first.

Having ZEST powered by NEAR means, super quick transaction speeds and gasless transactions; a big win for our community.

The last 12 months has seen the team at ZED explore many opportunities to eliminate two critical things that makes everyone’s blood boil; high gas prices and slow transaction times. This is where NEAR comes in.

NEAR is one of the first new kids on the blockchain to show us some gaming-dApp love and have brought their programming muscle to the table to help build ZEST from the ground up. 

Having ZEST powered by NEAR means, super quick transaction speeds and gas less transactions; not just reduced gas fees, rather completely free gas fees when using ZEST.

ZEST Launching Soon

ZEST will be launching any minute now, so stay abreast of our social channels! If you have signed up to our newsletter, we will let you know when ZEST goes live. As with any new product deployment, if issues do arise, please let us know via Discord so we can rectify the problem as quickly as possible.

In addition to the $200 USD giveaway, we are also hosting a live racing event alongside NEAR. There will be bonus prize pools and giveaways during the live stream! Stay tuned for this!

The Future is Bright

Our intent is to continuously add more fun and more value to ZED and this is what ZEST and NEAR bring. Together with NEAR, we are looking across the entire ecosystem to see how we can bring a better overall experience not only to ZEST but ZED as well. 

Watch this space because there is much more to come.
