Polkadot coin is a heterogeneous blockchain protocol that utilises sharding technology to enable the seamless transfer of data or crypto-assets across blockchains. The coin aims to build a scalable, interoperable, and secure system that allows adjacent blockchain protocols to build independently or with semi-dependence on its platform while leveraging its security.
It connects both private and public networks to its Relay Chain, with each being either a parachain or a parathread. The connection is carried through bridges, enabling projects building on the Polkadot ecosystem to connect and communicate with other blockchain ecosystems. Discover more about what crypto is
