FIND Right Application To Break Through Current Bottleneck of Polkadot

PolkaWorld hosted the August online Polkadot community gathering, inviting 9 Builders of the Polkadot ecosystem to meet with the community and they had a very high quality discussion and reflection on hot topics of concern to the community!

In the Crypto and Web3 worlds, there will be a variety of technology stacks and languages similar to those in open source technologies today, and eventually some mainstream and best-of-breed application paradigms will evolve. In the future, there may be certain types of smart contracts that are best programmed in Solidity, certain types of smart contracts that need to be programmed in Move, and some that need to be written in WebAssembly or programmed in Rust.

The bottleneck for the Polkadot ecosystem is that we need to figure out what kind of scenarios (packaging and combination of a series of applications) are best suited for a particular public chain paradigm, and this will take years to figure out.

In the migration process across public chain ecosystems, it is difficult to reuse the experience of the same type of use case. For example, NFT marketplace and Swap-like applications may be hot in the Ethereum ecosystem, and after other new public chains come out, these applications may also be hot on the new L1, but it is still questionable whether the same paradigm can reach the same height on Ethereum.

Each public chain has its own technical features, and teams need to find the best scenarios and best practices for those technical features.

Instead of trying to grow applications, we should now be trying to find the right applications! Each parallel chain should go back to the beginning and do what they Speciallized the most first, before doing what they need to do to grow the community.

The underlying language and public chain ecosystem works best in the most appropriate use case scenarios.

In terms of technology trends, blockchain is definitely going to be modular and modularized, meaning that each L1 is going to have its own proprietary features and the application layer products will be applications assembled based on these modular things.

To build L1 chains with the same level of security, the cost of building parachains using the Substrate technology framework is the lowest.

At the language level, Move or Rust, the development perspective is different. But the final implementation of the application layer, the final implementation of the protocol, doesn’t have much to do with the language. What you want to do is the more important thing!

Yuki @Moonbeam

Move is a very good learning target for developers. But from a practical point of view, if you use a new language to develop a public chain, it’s not simply a matter of making a project on your own, you also need to consider a lot of supporting infrastructure, which is a very long process.

Jason @Dante Network

The most talked about thing about Move is its resource-oriented programming model and a16z’s investment in it, but Flow has all of that. But we’ve found that the world doesn’t just need Flow. a16z is investing in more public chains.

We embraced Ethereum not because of its high TPS or because Solidity is a great language. Rather, we embraced a decentralized world computer like Ethereum because we cried out for decentralization, but we can’t construct a world centered on it. So the future must be multi-chain!

Cross-chain is an infrastructure that enables interoperability between multiple chains, and the asset cross-chain bridge is just a single application. The reason why cross-chain bridges are currently going wrong is that people are not putting their hearts and minds into getting this cross-chain interoperability thing right and secure, but rather focusing on how to get bigger TVLs.

In the future of the web, whether it’s Web2 or Web3, it’s all about people playing games, communicating, and building the values and worldview of the community, so we’re focused on building the infrastructure for DIDs.

Blockchain anonymity does not equal privacy!
