About the Polkadex Crowdloan

A crowdloan is a way for new projects to garner the support they need to connect to the Polkadot network as a parachain.

What are Parachains?

Parachains are Substrate-based interconnected blockchains, each with their own tokens and tailored to specific use cases. Polkadex is currently a Substrate-based solo-chain run by PDEX and it is aiming to be a parachain optimized for decentralized trading.

Parachains Wiki

What's the Relay Chain

The Relay Chain is the central chain that is used by the Polkadot network—its main task is to coordinate the overall system and its connected parachains.

Relay Chain Wiki


Parathreads are similar to parachains but with a pay-as-you-go model. More economical for blockchains that don’t need continuous connectivity to the network.

Parathreads Wiki


Bridges allow parachains to communicate with external networks—it's what enables Efinity to support NFTs from any blockchain.

Bridges Wiki


Secure the Relay Chain by selecting trustworty validators and staking DOT. In return, nominators are generally rewarded with a portion of the staking rewards from validators.

Nominators Wiki


Validators secure the Relay Chain by staking dots, validating proofs from collators, and participating in consensus with other validators.

two chain with pokadex coin

The Polkadex network will have all Polkadex products on top of it, as well as THEA, which means it will be connected to Ethereum(and other blockchains further down the line)

Polkadex network and Polkadex parachain will be two different networksdue to the fact that THEA cannot be deployed onto the parachain for at least another year.

The Polkadex parachain will connect Polkadex to the Polkadot network and all its parachains and their respective assets.

The two networks will be joined by a Substrate to Substrate bridge(Parity technology) in the backend.

The frontend user will not see any frictionand the two networks will work as one seamless system.

The networks will have the same tokenomics and will share the PDEX token as the native token for both networks.
