“We are proud and humbled that every team trusts OnFinality to be their launch partner. We’ve worked hard over the years to build our relationships with the best teams in Polkadot and we see a long future ahead.

What is Polkadot? ($DOT)

Founded by co-founder of Ethereum, Gavin Wood developed Polkadot to solve the limitations of isolated blockchains.

Polkadot unites and secures a growing ecosystem of specialised blockchains called parachains. Apps and services on Polkadot can securely communicate across chains via Cross-Consensus Message Format (XCM), forming the basis for a truly interoperable decentralised web.
