What is Polkadot?
Polkadot is a heterogeneous scalable multi-chain: the first of its kind. Think of it as a way of potentially connecting multiple blockchains together. The platform hasn’t been launched yet but is under development by the Parity team.
A longer and more thorough understanding of Polkadot can be obtained by reading the Lightpaper [PDF], Whitepaper [PDF], the technical website (see below), and the articles which will appear on this website in the future.
