Why Web3 needs decentralized frontends



Web3 has faced challenges like complex onboarding processes, limited app discoverability, and fragmentation across various blockchain networks. 

However, NEAR’s Blockchain Operating System emerges as a game-changer by introducing a unified layer that tackles these issues. 

According to Illia Polosukhin, co-founder of NEAR Protocol and CEO of Pagoda, Illia Polosukhin, who spoke at the ETHCC Paris, this revolutionary system not only simplifies discovery and onboarding but also paves the way for decentralized frontends that are compatible with multiple blockchains.

In his presentation, Illia discussed NEAR’s inception as a means of empowering individuals with control over their assets and data. NEAR initially built scalable blockchain infrastructure with a usability focus. 

Recognizing the need for seamless user-app connections, NEAR “introduced a new layer called decentralized composable front ends” that takes us “away from the idea that the front end needs to live on some server and needs to be accessed by the user and only through that way.” 

This connects users and applications throughout Web3, addressing data privacy, ownership, and distribution challenges through a decentralized frontend framework.

Features of decentralized frontend using NEAR’s solution

NEAR’s solution encompasses several key components. Firstly, the CEO mentioned a data platform that facilitates efficient data access and indexing, promoting compatibility across services. 

With “data living on IPFS or other decentralized storages, the front end now becomes more of a medium of information, and it can also live anywhere.” He added that it means that it can also be reconfigured “for the user at the time when they need to access it.”

Transaction efficiency is prioritized, achieved through techniques like “meta transactions to pay for transaction fees so that the user doesn’t see any of the crypto complexity” and secure onboarding.

The next feature is decentralized social graphs, which are designed to enhance user interaction and reputation management. 

Notifications and engagement are streamlined for enhanced user interaction. NEAR also introduces multi-chain accounts, providing unified access to diverse blockchain networks.

Furthermore, he noted that a strength of NEAR’s decentralized frontends is their composability. Developers can create apps once, making them accessible on various platforms. 

This accelerates development, fosters collaboration, and democratizes application access.

At the end of the presentation, he performed a live demo to demonstrate to developers how to utilize the infrastructure for creating decentralized frontends.
