Contributing to Polkadot's Technology

Parity engineers develop much of the open-source tech that drives Polkadot. Scroll down to see which technologies our teams are working on and find useful resources to start building yourself.


The powerful, secure core of Web3

Polkadot unites some of the world’s most transformative apps and blockchains. It offers advanced modular architecture that allows devs to design and build specialized blockchain projects, with pooled security and fully decentralized governance that gives everyone a say in shaping a sustainable, growing ecosystem. With Polkadot, you're not just a participant, you're a co-creator with the power to shape its future.


The Blockchain Framework used to Build Polkadot

Polkadot SDK is a flexible, modular, and highly customizable blockchain building kit. It helps developers build blockchains quickly and easily for free and is used by top Web3 projects around the world.
