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 Zeitgeist?


Zeitgeist is a decentralized network designed for establishing, wagering on, and settling prediction markets, enabling users to craft intricate financial agreements on a wide range of subjects. The platform's native currency, ZTG, serves to influence the network's direction and acts as a final recourse for dispute resolution within its decentralized court system.
