Polkadot, a multi-chain, next-generation blockchain and layer-0 protocol
Polkadot is a multi-chain, next-generation blockchain and layer-0 protocol that unites multiple specialized blockchains into a unified, scalable network. In simple terms, Polkadot is a “blockchain of blockchains,” allowing many different types of chains to work and interact securely together within the same ecosystem. These diverse layer-1 blockchains are known as parachains and are connected together via the Polkadot Relay Chain.
Over 300 projects have been or are currently being built for the Polkadot ecosystem, ranging from core technical infrastructure to applications for DeFi, social networking, IoT, gaming, robotics and supply chain logistics.
Polkdadot is the flagship project by Web3 foundation, a Swiss foundation founded to build a functional and user-friendly decentralized web
