What is Polkadot?

Polkadot (DOT) is a software seeking to reward a network of computers globally. The rewards are distributed on a blockchain on which users can launch and manage their digital assets. Since Polkadot was launched in early 2020, it is among the newest software that introduces several new technical attributes towards the ambitious goals it has. They are namely the main network and the user-created network. If you’re looking for an exchange to buy Polkadot, you can purchase the asset on Swyft’s Australian crypto exchange.

The Polkadot protocol has 4 main components. These are the relay chain, parachains, parathreads and bridges. The main Polkadot network which known as the relay chain, contains permanent transactions. The parachain is a user-created network designed in a way that can run on the main blockchain. This enables its transaction to benefit from the same security as the relay chain. Parathreads are similar to parachains but with a few minor tweaks. They run on an economical pay-as-you-go model and have flexible connectivity. Lastly, bridges are the connectors between parachains and parathreads and allow for communication with external blockchain-based platforms such as Ethereum.
