Developers can now apply for registration and crowd loans on Polkadot, a high-speed blockchain platform. DOT’s price has risen 15% to a record level in response to the news. DOT is currently worth $50.87 as Polkadot’s native token has climbed 15% in price in response to the news.
Polkadot slot auctions will take place for the first time on November 11 after the approval of polkassembly. A weekly auction will also take place during the first batch, which will last for five weeks. During the first two batches of auctions, 11 auctions will be held.
While that process is underway, the proposal needs to make it through the final stage that requires public approval.
UseCase of Polkadot Slot Auctions
Further, the existing Polkadot Relay Chain is solely responsible for transferring funds, governing the network, and performing stake-related services. These new chains will therefore be equipped with smart contract functionality as well as cross-chain compatibility.
An announcement from Binance stated that they were supporting the Polkadot auctions which will go live next week.
Competition in slot auctions is facilitated by crowd loans made in DOT tokens. When a candle goes out at the end of the auction, the highest bidder is selected randomly as the winner.
In order to support the project, the supporters will have to lock their DOT tokens into sponsored accounts for a designated period. The project competing in the auction usually airdrops tokens as a reward.
Polkadot’s Kusama canary network had already begun deploying chains in June, with Karura winning the first auction ever on the Kusama network.
The DOT blockchain network hopes to connect the Kusama deployment, which is already a success.
How Exactly do the parachains work?
Slot auctions on the blockchain are a chance for Polkadot and Kusama’s developers to develop new crypto assets and decentralized applications (dapps) on top of the Polkadot blockchain.
A property of heterogeneous sharding allows for such specialization on each slot, meaning that each slot can be unique and different from the others. In the same way that Moonbeam is optimized for providing the best possible experience to Ethereum users, others are designed for specific purposes.
It is intentional to make these slots scarce in order to encourage competition and make optimal use of fixed Relay Chain resources. Since slots are limited, aspiring chains have to compete to earn a lease on the initial launch as well as for renewals once the lease period expires. These leases last a maximum of 48 weeks on Kusama, whereas Polkadot has a maximum of 96 weeks.
