What is Substrate
Everything you need to build a blockchain.
Substrate comes with p2p networking, consensus algorithms, and cryptographic libraries out-of-the-box, for free.
Fast and efficient database
Modular P2P networking stack in libp2p
Hot-swappable consensus layer
Customizable transaction queue management system
Rich framework for composing runtime logic.
Mobile light client support
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!
(Almost) production ready
Substrate is the backbone that powers Polkadot, a next generation, heterogeneous, multi-chain network. Most 'parachains' that will connect to this network are also built on Substrate. Substrate is undergoing a security audit in preparation for a 2020 release of the Polkadot network.Learn more about Polkadot
