Focus on Your Strengths
Substrate's modular design means you can reuse battle-tested libraries while building the custom components that matter most.
Use Substrate's FRAME runtime system to build secure, scalable blockchain logic.
Create rich user experiences for any Substrate-based chain with Polkadot-JS.
Substrate supports multiple smart contract platforms, including the EVM.
Everything you need to build a blockchain.
Substrate is powered by best-in-class cryptographic research and comes with peer-to-peer networking, consensus mechanisms, and much more.
Fast and Efficient Database
Modular P2P Networking Stack
Hot-Swappable Consensus Layer
Configurable Transaction Queue
Flexible Runtime Library
Light Client Optimized
Substrate is the backbone that powers Polkadot, a next generation, heterogeneous, multi-chain network. Most of the blockchains in the Polkadot ecosystem are also built on Substrate. The Polkadot Network was launched in May of 2020.Learn more about Polkadot
Smart Contract Ready
Substrate has a Wasm smart contract platform that you can use out of the box. Because Substrate uses Wasm, you can build your smart contracts using any compatible language. We have built ink!, a Rust-based eDSL, for this purpose.Learn more about ink!
