OnFinality, Polkadot’s leading blockchain infrastructure provider, announces new API and node support for “Collectives”, Parity’s Common Good Parachain on Polkadot.
What is Parity Technologies?
Parity Technologies is the development company behind Polkadot. It was founded by the co-founder of Ethereum, Dr. Gavin Wood.
Today, Parity continues to innovate open-source blockchain infrastructure technologies for the decentralised web. Some of the groundbreaking distributed tech pioneered by Parity include on-chain governance protocol upgrades, Proof-of-Authority consensus, Private Ethereum transactions, Warp sync and pruning, as well as Rust and Wasm in blockchain.
“As Polkadot’s largest blockchain infrastructure provider, we are incredibly proud to be supporting the launch of the “Collectives” parachain, an important step forward for decentralised governance on Polkadot and the wider web3 ecosystem.”
— Daniel Vulinovich, Product Manager at OnFinality
What is “Collectives”?
“Collectives” is a new parachain and governance proposal by Parity, enabling networks to act as collectives and express their legislative voices on the decentralised web without the need for third parties such as lawyers or jurisdictional courts.
