What is DOT?

Current price
$ 00.00%

Founded in 2016, Polkadot is a blockchain protocol that connects an entire network of purpose-built blockchains, allowing them to operate seamlessly together at scale. Described as a “blockchain of blockchains”, Polkadot is designed to ‘join the dots’ of other networks by enabling users to build, host, and connect blockchains. Polkadot’s aim is to act as a framework for all blockchains, so developer time, talent, and resources can be dedicated elsewhere.

Mission

Polkadot believes there should be “Less Trust More Truth”. They envision a web where a user’s identity and data is their own - safely secured from any central authority. To do this, Polkadot plans to enable a completely decentralized web where users are in control. In doing so, they seek to free society from its reliance on a broken web where large institutions can violate user trust.

Team

Polkadot is the flagship project of the Web3 Foundation, a Swiss Foundation founded to facilitate a fully functional and user-friendly decentralized web. It was created by ex-Ethereum CTO Gavin Wood, Robert Habermeier and Peter Czaban.

Staking

Staking is a consensus model that holds funds in a crypto wallet to support the operations of a blockchain network. It works by rewarding users for staking their coins. Honest stakers are rewarded while bad actors lose their stake.

use-case-2.svg
Governance

Polkadot uses a sophisticated governance mechanism that allows it to evolve over time. Decisions are made by those in the Polkadot community, voted on through the use of DOT. Changes can include determining network fees, voting on overall network upgrades, and the deployment or removal of parachains. Anyone who holds DOT can vote for proposed changes.

DeFi

Polkadot’s unique ecosystem provides DeFi applications with unrivaled speed, scalability, and perhaps more importantly, interoperability. Because of this, some teams have begun to deploy their infrastructure on top of DeFi chains rather than building their own native parachain.

FAQs

What is a Parachain?

A parachain is a feature of the Polkadot multi-chain network. It is considered a simpler form of blockchain. A parachain works by attaching to the security provided by a Relay Chain rather than providing its own. By doing this, all parachains benefit from the Relay Chain’s base features.
