About Polkadot (DOT)

Founded by Ethereum cofounder Gavin Wood, Polkadot is a sharded multichain protocol that enables heterogeneous blockchains to communicate with each other. Polkadot achieves this with four main components: interoperable chains called relay chains, sharded chains called parachains, parathreads, and bridges to external blockchains. This modular architecture enables Polkadot to scale more effectively than other Layer-1 blockchains as independent networks transmit information — not just tokens — between each other.

Why should I buy DOT on OKX?

Polkadot is one of the leading blockchain ecosystems and is at the forefront of the Web 3.0 movement. Parachain slot auctions lock up DOT for two years, which reduces the asset's circulating supply and generates demand. Thus, DOT's strong fundamentals make buying DOT a popular cryptocurrency investment.

If you want to buy DOT, OKX is the best place for you to execute your trade. Meanwhile, our Earn products provide passive income opportunities for Polkadot investors.

Why Polkadot?

Developers can experiment with Polkadot using its sister network, Kusama. Projects can then bid for a parachain slot. In contrast to traditional blockchain networks where blocks are processed sequentially, Polkadot's parachains enable parallel execution of blocks, reducing network congestion.

Polkadot's native token, DOT, is used to bid for parachain slots, to incentivize participation in its nominated proof-of-stake consensus mechanism, as a governance token and as a medium of exchange.
