What is Polkadot (DOT)?

Polkadot ist yet another crypto project aiming at solving the problems with Ethereum. In fact, Polkadot is co-founded by Ethereum’s old Chief Technology Officer. Think of Ethereum as a single highway; and of the transaction fees as tolls. It is congested, and tolls are high. Polkadot takes a novel approach to solving this problem. Instead of creating more lanes on that freeway, which is a common solution other blockchains try, it allows for the creation of entirely new, separate freeways, or blockchains. And there are also ramps connecting those freeways, so exchanges are possible.

Cryptohunt's Opinion

Our take on Polkadot

We like Polkadot, because it allows developers to build their own blockchains for specific purposes and connect those. In theory this allows for much faster, independent applications. This is like having separate banks in a financial system vs. one bank serving everyone. It remains to be seen if that approach will take the lead and beat out Ethereum or others, but we think it is a strong contender in the race towards the one technology that does it all.

Don't get me wrong, Polkadot has an excellent team, tech stack, and community, but the tough decision for projects that have already adapted a parachain on Kusama (do we stay on Kusama or try for a parachain on Polkadot) is a hindrance that dApps and protocols on other chains do not need to deal with. That being said, I do appreciate the Moonbeam/Moonriver approach of having a presence on both and hope that more follow their lead.

Interesting layer 0 architecture, prioritisation of inter blockchain communication, rust based substrate language for smart contract, vetting process of dapps (PLO)
