What Is Polkadot (DOT)?

Polkadot (DOT) is an open-source sharded network founded and supported by the Web3 Foundation. This means that Polkadot isn’t a single blockchain, but rather a network of blockchains. Polkadot’s unique architecture includes a central chain, called the relay chain, and a number of separate chains connected to the relay chain, called parachains. The relay chain provides the necessary security and transaction validation functionality for the parachains. The parachains — independent of each other, and running in parallel — make use of the relay chain’s basic security and processing features.
The DOT coin is used by parachains to lease a connection to the relay chain. Any compatible blockchain may lock a certain amount of DOT on the platform while it remains connected to the relay chain. DOT is also used in Polkadot’s ecosystem for governance and staking purposes.
With its unique parallel processing architecture and support from the Web3 Foundation, Polkadot is considered one of the key blockchain projects to spearhead Web 3.0 development.
