    background If time goes back to 2017, people will still remember what happened in the blockchain field that year, especially the outbreak of the public chain field. Tens of thousands of projects that claimed to be public chains in that year would not be enough to describe However, the later story tells us that there are actually only a handful of public chains that can truly cross the river of history. As a result, the competition in the public chain seems to have changed from “a thousand arrows to one” to…

  • XCM: Message format of Polkadot relay chain operation

    Kusama has opened the 8th slot auction, which also means that Kusama’s relay chain will have an 8th parachain sharing security. The structure of Kusama’s relay chain is the same as Polkadot ‘s relay chain. Because of the shared security design, different heterogeneous chains can complete message communication. Facing the difference of heterogeneous chains, Polkadot’s cross-chain protocol needs to have some different communication methods. XCM is the message format for communication between different parachains. According to GavinWood’s introduction to XCM, we extract part of the introduction to understand XCM. XCM is a message format. It is not…

  • How to understand the assets and applications on Polkadot and Kusama?

    Today, there is another interesting question on Polkadot’s official Reddit. The questioner seems to be an ordinary user. He asked, ” What is the expectation of the same parachain deployed on Kusama and Polkadot?

Kusama Parachain Token?” Although this problem is of no use to users who already know cryptocurrency or the structure of Polkadot , it also represents a problem. Polkadot’s multi-chain structure, auctions, leases, Kusama, etc. are still very easy for users. baffled. So in this article, we once again explain the question about…

Our focus is mainly on 4 key areas: Candidate project stability Approval vote statistics Internet connection Load condition We sampled metrics from opt-in validators to collect information on Prometheus and Grafana. Please see below for details. Candidate project stability In an ideal situation, each parachain will generate a block for every 2 relay chains. We can determine the block generation rate of each parachain by dividing the number of relay chain blocks generated…

  • HashKey Cui Chen: Brief analysis of Kusama’s first batch of parachain auction process, results and impact

    Kusama was originally launched as a testnet for Polkadot, but after Polkadot was launched, it was still reserved as a pioneer network. Some functions that need to be deployed on Polkadot will be launched on Kusama first. These two are independent of each other, and KSM and DOT tokens were issued respectively. Their mechanism parameters are also different. For example, Kusama’s decision-making deployment time in governance proposals is shorter than Polkadot, and the cost is also less than Polkadot. In terms of positioning, Kusama is suitable for start-up teams to test new ideas,…
