Substrate, Polkadot, and Kusama - A Multi-Chain Future


Leaders from the Web3 Foundation, Parity Technologies, and Polkadot teams will be in San Francisco to discuss Substrate, Polkadot, and Kusama Network and the part each will play in a multi-chain future.


1. Polkadot Technical Discussion - Alistair Stewart, Web3 Foundation Researcher

2. Building a Multi-chain Future with Polkadot - Robert Habermeier, Polkadot Co-Founder

3. Fireside Chat with Alistair Stewart and Fredrik Harrysson, CTO of Parity Technologies

About Substrate

Substrate is the groundbreaking blockchain development framework created by Parity Technologies ( Created for maximum flexibility and ease of development, Substrate's modular architecture abstracts away as much blockchain development as possible, freeing teams to focus on their project's unique business logic.

Using Substrate, projects gain access to Parity’s new and unique advances in blockchain technology, including pluggable consensus and forkless upgrades. In addition, Substrate-based chains easily connect to Polkadot for plug-and-play security and interoperability. Projects can start building on Substrate today and significantly decrease development time and expense both now and in the future.
Substrate is the culmination of the expertise Parity gained building Ethereum, Bitcoin, Zcash, Polkadot, and numerous private blockchain clients. For more information, visit

About Polkadot

Polkadot ( is the first interoperability protocol that enables blockchains of all kinds to work together under the protection of shared security. Polkadot was founded in 2016 by Gavin Wood, co-founder and CTO of Ethereum and creator of the Solidity programming language. The network is expected to launch in 2020.

About Kusama

Kusama Network ( is an early, unaudited and unrefined release of Polkadot that went live in mid-2019. Kusama serves as a proving ground, allowing teams and developers to build and deploy a parachain or try out Polkadot’s governance, staking, nomination and validation functionality in a real environment.
