Plasm Network: A Layer 2 Parachain

Scalability is a major issue for most existing decentralized blockchains in the crypto space. Plasm Network, a layer 2 blockchain protocol, looks to put an end to blockchain scalability, privacy, and interoperability issues.   Blockchains by design are not made to scale due to their decentralized consensus mechanism. Their transaction speeds, measured in transactions per second (TPS), are far slower compared to centralized systems. This results in longer transaction time and generally poor user experience. That’s because most people are used to paying instantly with credit cards and cash. This makes

Not Ethereum, Polkastarter, the DEX Protocol Will Launch on Polkadot

Since gaining prominence in recent times, Decentralized Finance (DeFi) has been marauded with some sort of technical problem especially as it utilizes Ethereum blockchain that only does about 25-40 transactions per second. Most, if not all current DeFi aggregators and DEX platforms are built atop the Ethereum blockchain, it’s easier to deploy contracts on the Ethereum blockchain than in any known blockchain and it’s quite cheap to do too.  However this comes with a cost, the cost is in the amount of gas fee spent just by interacting with this
