What is Polkadot?
Polkadot is a cross-chain protocol that allows multiple platforms to connect and interact with each other.
What makes Polkadot different from other protocols?
Polkadot is a shared multi-chain network with multiple parallel parachains that can process many transactions at once, thus allowing better scalability chances. Polkadot is heterogeneous because it’s entirely flexible without assumptions about the nature or structure of the chains on it. It also provides unprecedented connectivity between the chains.
Can I integrate my project into another blockchain?
Definitely. There is a technical possibility to do that but with certain minor tweaks in the app’s architecture to make the integration smooth, eliminating bugs and frictions. Just keep in mind that it’s not a universal possibility, but more can be done in specific projects. The good news is that thanks to the fact that cross-chain transitions on Polkadot can be done easier it resolves the issue with a low interoperability.
How much does it cost to start a project on Polkadot?
The estimation will depend a lot on the idea, the chosen solution and its complexity, the number of team members involved, the tech stack used, and the time spent on the project. We can offer a customized project estimation depending on your requirements.
Does Polkadot support smart contract functionality?
Even though Polkadot itself doesn’t support smart contracts functionality, the parachains that connect to the relay network can support arbitrary state transitions and thus smart contracts.
How does Polkadot support blockchain?
By enabling multi-chain connectivity that allows interaction with multiple blockchain networks and performing uninterrupted transactions Polkadot unlocks the potential of the distributed ledger technologies.
