Polkadot is a protocol that allows independent blockchains to exchange information. Polkadot is an inter-chain blockchain protocol which unlike internet messaging protocols (e.g. TCP/IP) also enforces the order and the validitiy of the messages between the chains. This interoperability also allows the additional benefit of scalability by creating a general environment for multiple state machines.

About POLKADOT

Polkadot allows new designs of blockchains to communicate and pool their security while still allowing them to have entirely arbitrary state-transition functions.
This opens to the door to a network of blockchains, where private and consortium chains can be firewalled from open and public chains like Ethereum without losing the ability to communicate with them on their own terms, not unlike the intranet/internet synergy we see today.

At a high level, here are the problems we are attempting to solve:

1. Interoperability
Polkadot is designed to enable applications and smart contracts on one blockchain to seamlessly transact with data and assets on other chains.

2. Scalability
Polkadot gives the ability to run several parachains*, each processing multiple transactions in parallel, which allows networks to obtain infinite scalability.

3. Shared Security
With Polkadot, security is pooled within the network, which means that individual chains can leverage collective security without having to start from scratch to gain traction and trust.

Features

- Provides a framework under which new blockchains may be created and to which existing blockchains can, if their communities desire, be transitioned
- Pooled security
- Trust-free interchain transactability

Technical Info

Technical details:  Polkadot achieves low-level consensus over a set of mutually agreed valid blocks through a modern asynchronous Byzantine faulttolerant (BFT) algorithm. The source code:  Is intended to be a free and open project, the protocol specification being under a Creative Commons license and the code being placed under a FLOSS license. Proof of developer:  Public team

POLKADOT Roadmap

  • Networking subsystem

  • This is the means by which a peer network is formed and maintained. First an altered devp2p, then libp2p.
  • Finalisation mechanism

  • Optimistic BFT Proof of Authority consensus mechanism. The mechanism allows the proof of misbehaviour for the dismissal of malicious validators.
  • Parallelised candidate selection

  • This is allowing multiple independent items to be agreed upon under a single series based upon subjective reception of the partial set of validator statements. Used as an input to the finalization mechanism.
  • Proof of Stake chain

  • Extending the consensus mechanism into Proof of Stake territory; this module includes staking tokens, managing entry and exit from the validator pool, a market mechanism for determining.
  • Read More
  • Parachain implementation

  • This will include an integration with the Proof of Stake chain, allowing the parachain to gain consensus without its own internal consensus mechanism. More than likely this will include a WebAssembly-based contract execution architecture.
  • Transaction processing subsystem

  • An evolution of the parachain and relay-chain, this will allow for transactions to be sent, received and propagated. It includes the designs of transaction queuing and optimised transaction routing on the network layer.
  • Transaction-routing subsystem

  • This introduces more specifics into the relay-chains’ behaviour. Management of the ingress/egress queues and network protocol with means of directed transaction propagation, ensuring independent parachain collators are not overly exposed to transactions that are not of interest.
  • Relay chain

  • This is the final stage of the relay-chain, allowing the dynamic addition, removal and emergency pausing of parachains, the reporting of bad behaviour and includes implementation of the ‘fisherman’ functionality.
  • Independent collators

  • This is the delivery of an alternative chain-specific collator functionality. It includes proof creation (for collators), parachain misbehaviour detection (for fishermen) and the validation function (for validators). It also includes any additional networking required to allow the two to discover and communicate.
