< SPAN class="ql-author-58030660 ql-font microsoftyahei">Polkadot is an open source shard multi-chain protocol. It unites multiple blockchain platforms into a unified, scalable network where not just tokens any data or asset type can be transferred across the chain, allowing various blockchains to interoperate. This interoperability aims to create a fully decentralized, proprietary network, controlled by its users, and to simplify the creation of new applications, institutions, and services.
< SPAN class="ql-author-58030660 ql-font microsoftyahei"> Simply put, Polkadot is a "blockchain of blockchain", Allows many different types of chains to work and interact safely in the same ecosystem.
< SPAN class=" qL-font Microsoft tyahei ql-author-58030660">Polkadot is a heterogeneous multi-chain network, This means it connects various blockchains designed for a specific purpose into a single ecosystem. These different Layer 1 blockchains are called parallel chains because of the way they process transactions in parallel and are linked together by the Polkadot relay chain.
