DeFi protocol Balancer will find a second home on the NEAR Protocol

Major Ethereum-based decentralized finance (DeFi) protocol Balancer will also be available via NEAR, an Ethereum competitor that just fully opened its mainnet last week. The team behind the smart contract platform, which promises reduced latency and fees compared with Ethereum, announced the news on Monday. 

Balancer is an automated market maker that provides users with financial building blocks on which users can build DeFi products and services. Developed by Balancer Labs, the protocol is the third-largest decentralized exchange (DEX) on Ethereum by monthly volume.
