Polkadot provides interoperability between various blockchains for users while maintaining high scalability and speed in transaction processing. Also known as a multichain network, Polkadot supports many parachains, allowing developers to build their blockchains seamlessly.
There are several blockchain projects in the decentralized finance (DeFi) sector. These platforms often come up with different products and services related to cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology. Subsequently, users were intrigued with the full potential of the DeFi space.
However, there was the challenge of how a user could access more than one blockchain and DeFi application through a single platform. This is where Polkadot’s value proposition came to prominence.
The last few months of 2022 were difficult in the cryptocurrency market, as most cryptocurrency assets and projects saw a drastic drop in performance. Furthermore, the unexpected crash of the FTX crypto exchange brought a devastating condition that led to losses in the crypto space.
However, DOT has a positive story to tell. The multi-chain network reports massive growth in its ecosystem during Q4 2022.

The recent achievement crosses several milestones and aspects. In particular, the protocol and its projects progressed technically with many collaboration agreements and more technology adoption.

Parachain migration from Kusama to Polkadot
On October 3, 2022, Polkadot recorded its first successful parachain migration from its canary network, Kusama. The KILT protocol completed a full migration from the Kusama Relay Chain to the Polkadot Relay Chain.
This milestone shows Kusama as a suitable platform to test digital applications in a real life environment. Therefore, developers could curb associated risks before all relevant updates to ensure stability and security.
By using Kusama before his migration, the KILT Protocol achieved decentralization. In addition, the protocol included new functionalities in its update, increasing its usefulness and efficiency. Through its collaboration with Polkadot, KILT integrated digital identities through decentralized identifiers (DIDs).
Partnerships and Launch of Distinguished Polkadot (DOT) Pools in Q4 2022
Polkadot’s official Twitter page revealed its success during the last quarter of 2022. The multi-chain network consists of 74 parachains, 550+ projects, 300 decentralized apps, and 2,500+ active developers in its ecosystem. The growth of the DOT and Kusama communities has been excellent since the introduction of chain guards.
Polkadot’s participation system received amazing updates through the launch of nomination groups and the participation panel. This encouraged native stake holders to stake as little as 1 DOT to receive rewards.
In keeping with his vision of improving decentralization, he launched his OpenGov, a next-generation governance system on the Kusama network. The system is the most sophisticated and advanced blockchain governance system. It is proposed to start on the mainnet later.
Through the opportunities of Web3, the DeFi protocol achieved several partnerships with different companies. These include Astra Network, KILT Protocol, Efinity, T-System MMS, and others.
For over three years, it has engaged with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) regarding the status of its native token, DOT.
Finally, the Polkadot broke the barrier with its high achievement as DOT was no longer classified as a security. In November 2022 it was announced that DOT is now considered software. This is a feat that put him higher in Web3 adoption.
Additionally, 2022 marked a broad move through the Polkadot Ambassador Program. More than 1,600 new ambassadors joined the program, which means further growth for the multi-chain network.
