There is a plan to vote to enable small blockchain networks on the Kusama network. After audits, there will be a chain vote to introduce auctions.
The Polkadot project has now established that small blockchain networks will start working on the Kusama network with its roadmap. After they complete a period of testing, optimization, and audits on the testnet called Rococo, this action will take place, which would mark the full launch of this protocol.
The document published on its portal indicates that the small chains are the last piece of basic functionality delivered and will allow Polkadot to realize its scalable multi-chain structure.
The road map splits into three fundamental phases. The first of these is the current one, which relates to the Rococo testnet, through which developers can test procedures for the interoperability of networks that links to Polkadot.
The platform uses a mechanism called XCMP-lite (Cross-Chain Message Passing-lite) that activates small chains to send generalized tokens and messages to each other through the relay chain Polkadot, which plays the role of the central coordinator of the network.
Second, the team will work out the final items like the dispute resolution process and the approval vote. Once this process gets completed, they will pass the Pokaldot code base, which will be officially complete.
The third phase is holding a voting process that will enable Polkadot’s parachains allowing on the Kusama network, which is another blockchain under control by the same team. After all the audits under completion, a vote will happen to start the parachain auctions.
The Process before the Implementation of Parachain
In a video on YouTube, Gavin Wood, CTO Ethereum co-founder and founder of Polkadot, clarifies that “Polkadot is integrating the most solid roadmap when it comes to security, scalability, and innovation. After launching its relay chain’s genesis block in May 2020, Polkadot is now aiming to launch many parachains in 2021. ″
However, it does not specify which date this launch will be useful, which was expected for the first quarter of this year, since its development has advanced only more than half.
There have been problems with the stability of the Rococo testnet. Some parachains would hypothetically get stuck at block 1036. A GitHub pull request titled “New Genesis” then suggests a significant stability incident on the test net.
On its website, the Web3 Foundation notes that it will launch Polkadot in proof of authority mode. During that time, most users will claim tokens from their Ethereum contracts, staking tokens and declaring their intention to validate or nominate.
Also, Polkadot will allow a balance transfer in the next phase’s progress stage; It means that the Polkadot will have to pass one (or a series of) updates to enable the remaining functionality.
