Substrate

What is Substrate?

Substrate is the modular blockchain framework on which Edgeware and Kusama are built, and the foundation for the whole Polkadot ecosystem.

Substrate allows developers to quickly build and launch a blockchain with a variety of feature options available for a wide range of project needs.

These options include WebAssembly smart contracts, multi-level permissioning, encrypted transactions and state, account-level locking, and governance tools. Substrate-based protocols can easily interact with Polkadot allowing them to become parachains in the system and share security.
