Polkadot’s first token sale closed on October 27, 2017, raising a total of 485,331 ETH (Ether, the currency of the Ethereum blockchain).

Polkadot allows for cross-chain transfers of data or assets, between different blockchains, allowing for cross-chain DApps (decentralized applications) to be built using the Polkadot Network.

The Polkadot network has a primary blockchain named relay chain and many user-created parallel chains called parachains. The beating heart of Polkadot is called the Relay Chain. It is the origin of the network’s shared security and consensus and facilitates cross-chain interoperability. Parachains can be attached to the Relay Chain and used for transaction verification and validation.
