DOT exceeds $ 50 for the first time as parachain auction approaches

Polkadot: auctions for parachains arrive on November 4

Polkadot announced the news yesterday, via the project’s Twitter account. The blockchain governance council has confirmed that the registrations of parachains, as well as the launch of โ€œcrowdloansโ€ – crowdfunding – will be subject to a referendum.

Parachains are interconnected blockchains that underpin the entire Polkadot ecosystem. It is on these that developers can build their projects, and their use is subject to auction.

The launch of these crucial features is therefore currently the subject of a referendum. On the Polkassembly site, we can see that the vote is in favor of “yes”. This means that teams wishing to use the Polkadot parachains will be able to register one as of November 4. Crowdloans will also be unlocked on the same date.
