Julian's Notes

Polkadot

  • Project from Gavin Wood, CTO of Ethereum for a period of time
  • Uses PoS
  • Uses additional blockchains: "parachains" (for longer-term projects; limited slots) and "parathreads" (more widely available) that plug into the main chain ("relay chain")
  • Only 100 parachain slots, chosen via an auction (happening in April?)
