Using Near

Estimated time to read: 1 minute


Is Near the only non-EVM chain supported by the Arcana Auth product?


Refer to the list of pre-configured, supported chains - EVM and non-EVM for details.

Can a developer choose to use some EVM-compatible chains along with Near in an app?

No. Either EVM-compatible chain type or Near (non-EVM-compatible chain type) chains can be used at a time in an app. When a user logs into an app that is enabled for Near chain, the keys (wallet address) are different from the ones assigned to the same user when an EVM-compatible chain is selected or a different non-EVM chain is selected.


Why are the Near keys different from EVM-compatible chains?


<!--- MultiversX uses BLS multi-signature cryptographic keys.

BLS is different from the secp256k1 curve used for EVM-compatible chains. --->
