In 2016, Gavin Wood launched the Polkadot project, a paradigm shifting effort to create a scalable and interoperable platform that uses a novel concept called parachains. With the opening of the parachain auctions in 2021, teams all around the world have been competing for a chance at winning a coveted parachain slot.
On this show, you’ll hear from leaders and innovators building parachains on Polkadot and it’s sister project, Kusama. Whether this is the first you’ve heard of parachains, or you’re a defi aficionado, come with us behind the scenes as we explore the technology of the future, today.
The 'Remarkable' RMRK
In this episode we welcome back Bruno Škvorc, founder of the NFT project RMRK - which aims to give NFTs infinite extensibility.
While RMRK is not a parachain, it is a new NFT standard that is primarily focused on the Polkadot/Kusama ecosystem. Join us to piece together the "NFT legos" as RMRK moves from 1.0 - 2.0, discuss securing your NFTs, and ‘remark’ on how this new technology is trying to change the way people interact with the blockchain.
