about gear

What is Gear protocol?

Gear Protocol is an advanced smart contract platform that offers an easy to use library for smart contract development, provides a custom runtime for programs that utilize the protocol's unique features and Substrate components for secure, fork-less upgradable networks which opens up integrations with other Substrate-based networks. The protocol's technology design and asynchronous programming paradigm enable infinite sharding and truly decentralized use cases, making it possible to bring thousands of traditional Web2.0 businesses and services to Web3.
