The first version of Orderly currently resides on the NEAR protocol — a platform that shares our mission of mass onboarding for both end-users and developers, offering impressive speed and scalability. Orderly Network is a combination of an orderbook-based trading infrastructure and a robust liquidity layer offering spot and perpetual futures order books. Unlike traditional platforms, Orderly doesn’t have a front end; instead, it operates at the core of the ecosystem, providing essential services to projects built on top of it. Our integration with major wallets ensures seamless and accessible trading experiences across the digital asset space.
In essence, this guide provides detailed steps on how to use Orderly on the NEAR protocol
The first step to trading on Orderly is to set up a wallet on the NEAR protocol, allowing you to interact with any dApp in the NEAR ecosystem. There is a wide variety of wallet options available on NEAR such as HERE wallet. However, most wallets offer similar features and interfaces.
In this tutorial, we will demonstrate how to set up a wallet on NEAR using the HERE Mobile Wallet. You can also follow the official documentation of your preferred wallet option to seamlessly complete its setup.
Follow the steps below to set up your HERE Wallet on the NEAR Blockchain:
Having set up your wallet, the next step is to transfer some assets (NEAR tokens) into your HERE Wallet. There are two primary methods for this:
