Polkadot Network

    OverviewSuggest Edit

    Polkadot Network offers a heterogeneous multi‑chain technology. The Company develops a protocol that allows independent blockchains to exchange information. It is built to connect private/consortium chains, public/permissionless networks, oracles and future technological developments to be created in the Web3 ecosystem. It enables an internet where independent blockchains can exchange information and trust-free transactions via the Polkadot relay chain, with satisfactory levels of scalability, governance and interoperability.
