About Polkadot (DOT)

Buy Polkadot

Polkadot was developed by Gavin Wood, one of the original Ethereum founders and the developer of the Solidity language. Polkadot is a multi-chain blockchain intended to facilitate interoperability between other blockchains. It uses a proof-of-stake consensus mechanism, which means it consumes a small fraction of the energy used by other blockchains. The original whitepaper markets Polkadot as a “sharded version of Ethereum” in which any Polkadot-based chain can interact without relying on third party intermediaries.


DOT is the native token on the Polkadot network, used for transaction fees, governance, interoperability, and bonding.
