Gavin Wood, an original co-founder of Ethereum, took a few good swipes at the second-largest cryptocurrency he helped create at Consensus: Distributed.
Polkadot developer Parity Technologies has released the second version of its blockchain building kit Substrate 2.0, including 70 composable modules.
Polkadot has released its first testnet, Rococo, for its parachain network. The testnet will commence with three parachains, Parity Technologies said.
In a cryptocurrency ecosystem where the programmable-money juggernaut has long been Ethereum, Polkadot, a project that has been quietly developing an alternative solution since 2016, is ready to take on the blockchain world.
A second private sale of the Polkadot token (DOT) has netted some 3,982.07 BTC worth an estimated $43.3 million as of press time, according to sources.
The court for the first time used a blockchain-based system to record votes in a web-hosted plenary session Friday.
