Polkadot is a free and open source project that refers to an open network protocol as well as the public network on which it runs (e.g. Ethereum, Bitcoin). On November 14th, 2016, Gavin Wood, co-founder of Ethereum, Parity Technologies, and Polkadot, revealed the primary implementation in the Polkadot whitepaper.

Polkadot says that current blockchain protocol implementations do not sufficiently handle the demands of different users’ preferences for privacy, security, and scalability considerations. Furthermore, most blockchains find it impossible to interact with one another without the use of an interoperability layer. Users take on a variety of responsibilities, staking tokens in contracts on both the polkadot and parachains, with the objective of improving scalability and security across a set of blockchains.


The polkadot pre-sale will use a Dutch auction to distribute 50% of the DOT tokens in the genesis block. Although no precise date has been set, it will not be available to citizens of the United States or China. For know your customers (KYC) services, the sale will employ Parity PICOPs, a technology for validating identification to participate in ICOs. DOT coins will not exist until the polkadot blockchain is released, which is expected in Q3 2019.


Parachains And Relay Chains

The relay link between a variety of parachains and virtual parachains is provided by the polkadot chain, which is at the heart of the polkdadot architecture (e.g. Ethereum, Zcash, etc). Parallelizing tasks over several parachains might provide scalability. The relay chain organises the transmission of any generic message type between the chains. Messages are general in nature and can represent hashed transaction bundles or any other arbitrary data. As a result, the relay chain adds no functionality or complexity other from pooling consensus and security across chains and transmitting messages.

Consensus Roles

A proof of stake method governs the polkadot chain, which has four different user roles: validators, nominators, collators, and fishermen.

Validators on the polkadot relay chain are users who stake DOT tokens in order to produce new blocks on the network. Validators who stake DOT tokens must keep a relay-chain client with appropriate availability and bandwidth or risk losing their stake.

To express trust in certain validators, nominators stake DOT tokens.

In particular parachains, collators keep a complete node. They help the validators by collecting transactions and providing them with a block containing a zero-knowledge proof.

Fishermen keep an eye on the validators and collators for harmful network assaults. If a fisherman spots misconduct, he or she is rewarded.
