Teams building on Polkadot


A number of teams have started researching or building Polkadot infrastructure and parachains.

Some of these teams are preparing for Polkadot’s launch today by building on the Substrate technology stack. Polkadot parachains don’t have to be built on Substrate, but they can be and it is easy for them to be used in Polkadot. For Substrate chains to become parachains there is very little technical overhead or extra coding. The chain simply needs to bond DOT tokens to lease a parachain slot on the Polkadot platform.

This is a rundown of the teams building out the Polkadot ecosystem. Please comment as more come online.

Polkadot Implementations


where can we get the latest list of parachain?

Hey Ty, you can find all that are connected to telemetry on testnet here: As polkadot hasn’t launched on main-net yet this list may/may not be relative to active parachains upon launch.

Hi there! Please add PolkaStats, a webapp that show useful info about the active validators in Polkadot network:


Thank you!

In order to fully realize the original vision of our Proof of Provenance system, Digix will be moving from our Ethereum smart contract implementation into Polkadot.

While we are big fans of Ethereum (myself being the first person to send and receive the first ever transaction on the network) we feel that in order for us to achieve the level of customization, complexity, and usability that we need to deliver the full vision of our asset tokenization and provenance system we need a highly customizable framework to build upon.

Subscan ( is the most convenient and easy-to-use multi-chain explorer for Substrate & Polkadot. It now supports Kusama CC3 Network, Edgeware Mainnet, Darwinia Icefrog Testnet, and will support more networks in the future, such as Polkadot, Acala, Plasm, etc.

Subscan provides a convenient query service for the chain developed based on the Substrate framework. Users can use Subscan to view transaction information of exchanges / wallets, such as deposit, withdrawal, transfer, and staking, etc.
