    Web wallet for NEAR Protocol which stores keys in browser's localStorage

    You need a NEAR account to interact with the blockchain, you will also use accounts when deploying smartcontracts. You can create account in the mainnet (you can think of this as the live network of near protocol) and for development purposes you need to create account on the testnet. This is an easy process, ensure you keep your passphrase safe.
