About Blockchains

What is IoTeX?

IoTeX is a blockchain platform designed specifically for the Internet of Things (IoT) industry. It aims to address the scalability, privacy, and security challenges associated with connecting billions of devices to the internet. IoTeX utilizes a unique architecture that combines blockchain, decentralized identity, and secure hardware to create a trusted and privacy-centric infrastructure for IoT applications. It offers lightweight and efficient consensus mechanisms, support for trusted computing environments, and privacy-preserving techniques such as zero-knowledge proofs.

What is Polkadot?

Polkadot stands out among other blockchain projects for its focus on enhancing the foundational infrastructure of dApps. It aims to enable interoperability between blockchain ecosystems, facilitating seamless communication without intermediaries. Functioning as a "network of networks," Polkadot utilizes parachains — specialized blockchains with unique functionalities and tokens — to enable interaction between diverse blockchain architectures. Powered by the nominated proof-of-stake (PoS) consensus algorithm and drawing inspiration from the Ouroboros protocol, Polkadot offers a robust framework for building interconnected and scalable decentralized systems.
