We recently announced our support for Solana dApps through expanding our Web3 engine. As the first enterprise-grade gateway to allow secure connection to non-EVM chains, we’re bringing unprecedented access to the growing world of Web3 for our global user base; now, institutions can also access DeFi on NEAR securely and efficiently. 

Marieke Flament, CEO of NEAR Foundation said: “This is a tremendous milestone for NEAR as we aim to work with top tier technology providers such as Fireblocks to reach a wider user community and to safely accelerate crypto adoption around the world.  This integration is key to unlocking the support of the institutional investment community and the tier 1 institutions that want to access NEAR tokens and other applications that are becoming essential to the future of finance.”

Enterprise-grade access to DeFi on NEAR is now live on Fireblocks

As of today, our users have enterprise-grade access to the NEAR Web3 ecosystem through the Fireblocks WalletConnect integration, which can now securely enable vault connections to non-EVM chain dApps.

Using the DeFi suite part of Fireblocks’ Web3 Engine, customers can set custom limits by contract, amount, user, and more with robust DeFi policy controls when interacting with decentralized platforms starting with Meta Yield, Burrow and Ref.Finance.
