Polkadot is a blockchain platform that is designed to support multiple chains, known as parachains, that can interoperate with each other. It is built on the substrate framework and is intended to provide a more scalable, flexible, and secure alternative to other blockchain platforms, such as Ethereum. Polkadot uses a unique consensus mechanism, called the Relay Chain, which allows it to support a range of applications and use cases, from decentralized finance (DeFi) to governance and identity.
