Polkadot – Building an unstoppable blockchain ecosystem | Fundamentals ep.55

In this episode of the Fundamentals podcast, we’re joined by Shawn Tabrizi, Lead Developer at Polkadot. Polkadot is the first fully-sharded blockchain, i.e. it is a multi-chain environment. Polkadot enables scalability by allowing specialized blockchains to communicate with each other in a secure, trust-free environment.

In our interview with Shawn, we discuss Polkadot’s core value proposition, the main optimizations they have focused on, the concepts of shared security, interoperability, and unstoppability, Polkadot’s economic model, how to value the utility of a blockchain network’s native token, current growth drivers and challenges, plans for the future, and more!
