About Blockchains

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.

What is Polkadex?

Polkadex is a decentralized exchange (DEX) built on the Polkadot network. It offers high-performance, low-latency trading with a fully decentralized order book. Users can trade assets across different parachains within the Polkadot ecosystem and external blockchains connected via bridges. Polkadex uses L2 scaling solutions for fast, efficient trading and operates on a non-custodial model, allowing users to retain control of their funds at all times.
