Polkadot is a next‑generation blockchain protocol that enables different blockchains to connect and communicate with each other. The protocol was launched with the idea of creating a better internet, where control is returned to the individuals and not to large corporations. It was designed by Ethereum’s co‑founder, Gavin Wood.

Polkadot is managed by Web3, a Swiss foundation that aims to create and nurture technologies and applications for decentralised web software protocols.
