About Polkadot

Polkadot is a protocol that enables cross-blockchain transfers of any type of data or asset. By uniting multiple blockchains, Polkadot aims to achieve high degrees of security and scalability. DOT serves as the protocol’s governance token and can be used for staking to secure the network or to connect (“bond”) new chains.

Polkadot (DOT) is an open-source multichain protocol that seeks to connect and secure a network of specialized blockchains. It aims to facilitate the cross-chain transfer of any data or asset types, not just tokens, striving to make blockchains interoperable with each other. Polkadot is known as a layer-0 metaprotocol because it underlies and describes a format for a network of layer 1 blockchains known as parachains. As a metaprotocol, Polkadot has the ability to update its own codebase via on-chain governance according to the will of its token holder community. The Polkadot protocol seeks to connect public and private chains, permissionless networks, oracles, and future technologies, allowing these independent blockchains to trustlessly share information and transactions through the Polkadot Relay Chain.
