Why we are excited about Kusama and Polkadot

Polkadot is going to provide a unique, new kind of blockchain for our users.

Rather than one blockchain with many features, Polkadot is a framework in which many blockchains communicate with each other while keeping their own specific features: Some chains might be faster for quick transfers, others are optimized for storing value.

This unique design promises faster transactions while keeping similar security promises as for example Ethereum.

For us, Kusama is a first step towards Polkadot, and a chance to support an innovative network with an impressive value proposition.
