Although the Blockchain space has matured significantly from the earliest days of Bitcoin, it has also fragmented due to an ongoing evolution of ideas. But it doesn’t have to be this way.
Polkadot is a blockchain technology solving the most pressing issues of scalability and extensibility, while completely obsoleting the public/private blockchain dichotomy by allowing any number of feature sets to exist in the same interoperable network.
On Polkadot, we see high-value chains such as Bitcoin or Zcash coexisting alongside „theme chains“ and test-net chains with near-zero fees. We see fully-encrypted, „dark“ consortium chains operating alongside – and even providing services to – highly functional open chains such as Ethereum. We see experimental new VM-based chains used as a means of outsourcing difficult compute problems from a more mature Ethereum-like chain or a more restricted Bitcoin-like chain. We see all of this and more, happening on Polkadot, the Internet of Blockchains.
Look forward to see you there.
