Polkadot (DOT)


Polkadot is a blockchain network that allows the connection of multiple specialized chains into a one universal network.

Polkadot achieves its interoperability by using a unique architecture called a “relay chain” and “parachains.” The relay chain is the central chain that manages the network and is responsible for the shared security of all parachains. Parachains are individual blockchains that run in parallel to the relay chain, and they can be customized to serve a specific purpose. Polkadot’s unique consensus mechanism, called “Nominated Proof of Stake” (NPoS), enables users to nominate validators who will produce blocks and secure the network. Validators must hold a certain amount of DOT, and their stake acts as collateral, incentivizing them to act honestly and secure the network.

DOT also serves as a governance token, allowing holders to participate in the decision-making process of the Polkadot network. Holders can vote on proposals, such as upgrades or changes to the protocol. DOT holders can also choose to stake their tokens, which enables them to participate in the consensus process and earn rewards for securing the network.
