Welcome to Polkadot and Kusama, Hyderabad ! This is a community for both technical and non-technical people to learn about, discuss, and hack on the Polkadot and Kusama networks.
Polkadot is a next-generation, sharded, multi-chain network founded by Dr. Gavin Wood, cofounder and former chief technology officer of Ethereum and creator of the Solidity programming language. Polkadot is a metaprotocol solving many challenges that has hindered the growth of legacy blockchains, including scalability, governance, security, and interoperability. Polkadot is a project fostered by the Web3 Foundation and built by industry-leading developers like Parity Technologies. Applications from decentralized finance and energy to gaming and communications will thrive on Polkadot, challenging the centralized platforms of the current web.
Kusama is a scalable network of specialized blockchains built using Substrate* and nearly the same codebase as Polkadot. The network is a development environment for teams who want to move fast and innovate exclusively on Kusama, or fine-tune and prepare for deployment on Polkadot. Kusama was founded in 2019 by Gavin Wood. Kusama is a platform built for radical change agents to take back control from big tech, spark innovation and push the limits of what’s possible.
*Substrate is the development framework for building custom blockchains that can connect to the Polkadot or Kusama network. Learn more at http://substrate.io
This group will follow Polkadot's development and learn about Polkadot and Kusama’s technology, recent developments in the ecosystem, developing custom, application-specific blockchains called parachains, and building decentralized applications.
