After months of building, connecting & hard working, we are thrilled to announce the Open Beta launch of HEROES — a non-custodial bounty marketplace on NEAR!

HEROES differentiates by revolutionizing task-based payments, ensuring trust, transparency, seamless transactions through its smart contract-based escrow system, and noble features such as: Embedded KYC, an Auto-generated Invoicing system, as well as the option to add additional reviewers & Service DAOs.

Landing its first step on NEAR — the most UX/ Onboarding experience focused blockchain — HEROES aims to become the adopted bounty platform across the Web3 landscape.
