It consists of many parachains with potentially differing characteristics which can make it easier to achieve anonymity or formal verification. Transactions can be spread out across the chains, allowing many more to be processed in the same period of time. Polkadot ensures that each of these blockchains remains secure and that any dealings between the are faithfully executed. Specialised parachains called bridges can be created to link independent chains.

Networking subsystem
This is the means by which a peer network is formed and maintained. First an altered devp2p, then libp2p.
Finalisation mechanism
Optimistic BFT Proof of Authority consensus mechanism. The mechanism allows the proof of misbehaviour for the dismissal of malicious validators.
Parallelised candidate selection
This is allowing multiple independent items to be agreed upon under a single series based upon subjective reception of the partial set of validator statements. Used as an input to the finalization mechanism.
Proof of Stake chain
Extending the consensus mechanism into Proof of Stake territory; this module includes staking tokens, managing entry and exit from the validator pool, a market mechanism for determining.
Parachain implementation
This will include an integration with the Proof of Stake chain, allowing the parachain to gain consensus without its own internal consensus mechanism. More than likely this will include a WebAssembly-based contract execution architecture.
Transaction processing subsystem
An evolution of the parachain and relay-chain, this will allow for transactions to be sent, received and propagated. It includes the designs of transaction queuing and optimised transaction routing on the network layer.
Transaction-routing subsystem
This introduces more specifics into the relay-chains’ behaviour. Management of the ingress/egress queues and network protocol with means of directed transaction propagation, ensuring independent parachain collators are not overly exposed to transactions that are not of interest.
Relay chain
This is the final stage of the relay-chain, allowing the dynamic addition, removal and emergency pausing of parachains, the reporting of bad behaviour and includes implementation of the ‘fisherman’ functionality.
Independent collators
This is the delivery of an alternative chain-specific collator functionality. It includes proof creation (for collators), parachain misbehaviour detection (for fishermen) and the validation function (for validators). It also includes any additional networking required to allow the two to discover and communicate.

Other Interesting ICOs
The DemBlock marketplace is an already fully functioning and working decentralized electronic marketplace with the possibility to offer notarized supplier data on the blockchain. Suppliers have the possibility to list their products on the DemBlock marketplace and to conduct corporate and sourcing verification on the blockchain.
Quanta Networks
Quanta is stepping up, to build high performance, Blockchain compliant platforms that will evolve the Telecom industry and enable scalable, secure and efficient Blockchain environments. Quanta is a “disruptive” new telecom technology. By comparison, Uber is a transportation company that does not own its own vehicles. Their business model is based on enabling and utilizing surplus or unused resources. Quanta creates network connections where there is available bandwidth by optimizing portions of network traffic, redirected in the interest of improved speed and connectivity, enabling devices to form a communication network by themselves using their own available bandwidth. Quanta is creating a better network without purchasing any bandwidth.
PrepayWay is a blockchain ecosystem that simplifies and streamlines international collaboration, contracting, and payments for companies across multiple industries.

Ultrain Technology Limited is the next generation public-blockchain technology venture that focuses on building a high performance decentralized blockchain platform through its programmable tech-infrastructure. Ultrain is committed to construct a responsible and sustainable commercial ecosystem that enables all industrial applications. With its groundbreaking innovations in cryptography and based upon a complete decentralized public network, Ultrain is able to provide multi-folds more advanced technical performance to fundamentally solve the performance and scalability issues comparing to other traditional public blockchain platforms.
Quantler is a blockchain for creating, analysing, sharing and running of decentralized structured investment products. Create structured products (such as an ETF) in equities or cryptocurrencies using themes. As there are a lot of the tokenized products being launched (currently over 1 900 available) the structured products for these assets are lacking behind (such as sector-based ETFs). Using Quantler’s blockchain anyone can create structured products (for regular assets such as Equities and cryptocurrencies) and run them on a decentralized network (much like smart contracts). Quantler also allows for regular assets, for this market Quantler’s solution is more flexible and has a lower costs base (targeted for exchanges, family offices and investment managers). The QUANT token’s intrinsic value is dependent on the AUM (asset under management) by the entire network. Quantler is like a Vanguard or BlackRock, but then in the form of a network.
