Polkadot is a protocol that aims to award a network of computers worldwide. Instead of just focusing on token transfers, Polkadot’s main function is to facilitate the cross-chain transfer of any data type by creating a multi-chain sharding protocol on a blockchain in which people can launch and maintain their digital properties. rewards are distributed for participation in the Polkadot network.

Since Polkadot’s release in early 2020, it has already pioneered a number of new technological attributes. Permanent transfers on Polkadot occur on the mainnet which is known as the Relay Chain. The Parachain network is a user-created network of independent chains that can launch their own tokens and are built in a way that can run on the main Relay Chain. This allows the Parachain network the same protection as the Relay Chain. DOT is the native token of the Polkadot protocol, and it is used for network functions such as governance and creating parachains.
