Substrate Technology

beyond the
of others

What if developers could build on a blockchain framework specifically optimized for their requirements that seamlessly evolves with their needs and without requiring forks?

Welcome to Substrate, the only flexible, open, interoperable, and future-proof blockchain framework.

Substrate was created by pioneers and veterans of the blockchain industry who set out to overcome the limitations of previous-generation networks. Through the process of building clients in the early days of Bitcoin and Ethereum, these developers found they were recreating much of the same functionality but with different limitations around scale, governance, forks, interoperability, and upgrades.

Substrate was born from the vision that developers shouldn't have to recreate fundamentals when building and optimizing a blockchain. Read below to learn why Substrate is the best technology to build on, now and into the future.
