Unofficial NEAR Protocol mascot



NEARchan is the work of NEARchan Guild, founded in the spring of 2021. She’s inspired by yuru-chara (mascots created for promotion) and the MoeMorphism movement of “somethingchans.” Our purpose is to bring NEARchan to life with community input and artist commissions. More context in the genesis governance post & character reference deck.

Reference Materials

NEARchan Guild commissioned GARRID to create the genesis NEARchan character sheet. Her design is the result of several collaborative weeks. After countless reviews we are confident that every element of NEARchan represents the values of NEAR Protocol. That said, we don’t see NEARchan as static. Show us NEARchan in lots of different outfits and situations!
