What if developers could build on a blockchain framework specifically optimized for their requirements that seamlessly evolves with their needs and without requiring forks?
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.
No need to reinvent the wheel, Substrate has robust tooling for development, deployment, and debugging.
Browsers can interact directly with the blockchain network instead of relying on resource-heavy local node infrastructure or third party services.
Upgrading blockchains has never been easier. With Substrate, everyone stays on the same path.
Substrate is uniquely:
Substrate's flexibility alleviates the tension of tradeoffs by enabling developers to create the optimal blockchain for their specific needs.
The combination of an open-source, customizable architecture, rich tooling and a robust, active community makes Substrate the most open way to build.
Interoperability without foregoing compatibility, security, or efficiency; learn how Substrate takes a unique, multifaceted approach to address each of these factors.
Substrate enables developers to change their architecture as their needs evolve, ensuring that their blockchain network is ready for whatever the future brings.
