“Polkadot is a next-generation blockchain protocol that unites an entire network of purpose-built blockchains, allowing them to operate seamlessly together at scale. Because Polkadot allows any type of data to be sent between any type of blockchain, it unlocks a wide range of real-world use cases.”— from the Polkadot whitepaper.

The protocol’s architecture is built around the relay chain, or Layer 0, which underpins shared security and consensus across the Polkadot network. Attached to this are the parachains, or Layer 1 blockchains, which connect to the relay chain to ensure unified security and consensus, fostering an integrated and interoperable network.

Bullish on Polkadot projects, indeed!
