To ensure projects have maximum impact, the team focuses on high quality projects with more value than hype. In particular, the NEAR Foundation seeks to support projects focused on high-traction verticals such as sports, entertainment and loyalty. An example of the NEAR Foundation’s commitment to these vertical markets is its partnership with Few and far, which offers a first community experience for groups and creatives, which rewards participants for their loyalty and participation. The Foundation also comes announcement a new partnership with Dropt, a Web3 platform for loyalty and fan engagement. For one of his first integrations, Dropt will partner with an NBA championship team, led by one of the most dominant players in the world. With more partnerships on the horizon, the NEAR Foundation is looking at apps to boldly weather the crypto winter.
