Polkadot - heterogeneous multi‑chain technology
"The Polkadot protocol is intended to be a scalable heterogeneous multi-chain technology. Unlike previous blockchain implementations that have focused on providing a single chain of varying degrees of generality over potential applications, Polkadot itself will not provide any inherent application functionality at all. Rather, Polkadot will provide the bedrock relay-chain upon which a large number of validatable, globally-coherent dynamic data-structures may be hosted. We call these data-structures “parallelised” chains or parachains, though there is no specific need for them to be blockchain in nature.

In other words, Polkadot may be considered equivalent to a set of independent chains (e.g. the set containing Ethereum, Ethereum Classic, Namecoin and Bitcoin) except for two very important points: pooled security and trust-free interchain transactability.

These points are why the Foundation considers Polkadot to be “scalable” in its design. In principle, a problem to be deployed on Polkadot may be substantially parallelised - scaled out - over a large number of parachains. Since all aspects of each parachain may be conducted in parallel by a different segment of the network, the system has some ability to scale.

Polkadot is intended to provide a bare-bones piece of infrastructure leaving much of the complexity to be addressed at the middleware level. This is a conscious decision intended to reduce development risk, enabling the requisite software to be developed within a short time span and with a good level of confidence over its security and robustness."

Key elements:
1 Relay chain > Coordinates consensus and transaction delivery between chains
2 Parachains > Constituent blockchains which gather and process transactions
3 Bridges > Link to blockchains with their own consensus such as Ethereum
