NEAR is in the process of migration. While it is a big event, it still raises many questions among the crypto community. Let Nightly solve them for you!

What's NEAR migration?

NEAR ecosystem currently includes lots of wallets supported by an enormous and active NEAR community. To commemorate this expansion and emphasize decentralization, Pagoda (creators of NEAR Wallet) decided to shut down the operations of their products and transform them from a browser wallet into a wallet hub. This hub serves as a central point for all NEAR wallets, allowing users to explore and choose the most suitable wallet for their requirements, including the Nightly Wallet, and transfer their NEAR Wallet to another wallet working on this chain.

Why migrate my NEAR wallet?

As NEAR Wallet shut down its development and support on the 8th of January. This makes its use less safe, so users who want to trade safely have to transfer their wallet to another wallet.

Do I have to migrate on NEAR?
