Blockchain development is a constantly evolving area. In what seems to be a daily event, new projects and networks are emerging that claim to offer better performance or new functionality unlike anything we’ve seen before.
Whether these claims are true or not, the existence of multiple blockchain networks requires developers to consider the pros and cons of each before building a decentralized application (DApp). And more often than not, developers are tied to their preferred network from the start.
Creating a DA application is not an easy task. The development team must learn one or more programming languages, manage sandbox environments and virtual machines, and create smart contracts of varying complexity. Regardless of all this, it is necessary to consider which networks have or can attract a large group of users.
For example, Ethereum (ETH) is slow and expensive compared to most networks today, but it has a powerful Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) and more users than many of its competitors. Ethereum has its own application standard developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). Other networks such as Polkadot (DOT) may be faster and more powerful on a feature level, but lack the broad user base of Ethereum.
The industry has reached a point where DApps are classified as Ethereum or non-Ethereum DApps and interoperability is difficult, but developers won’t let that stop them. In fact, some create virtual machines and smart contracts that support both Ethereum and the network they choose.
One project to bridge this development gap is ParaState, a DAO that builds a WebAssembly-based virtual machine (WASM) and is compatible with Ethereum (eWASM) as well as Polkadot.
Essentially, smart contracts are developed and distributed using the ParaState eWASM solution, which is compatible with Ethereum from the very beginning. From there, developers can simply drag and drop them into Polkadot.
Offering simplified interoperability, developers don’t need to learn multiple programming languages or become locked into a single platform. Instead, they can focus on development first and worry about network distribution later.
In addition, DApps built using the eWASM virtual machine comply with all the standards set by the W3C, allowing developers to worry less about technical efficiency.
However, perhaps most notable is that the platform works with pre-existing DApps as well. Using this solution, developers can easily port their Ethereum-based projects to Polkadot, but the reverse is also possible. ParaState also wants to support other blockchain networks in the future.
While ParaState supports existing languages such as Solidity, it is designed with the future in mind as it supports RUST and other smart contract languages. However, ParaState is only as good as the developers working on it, and such a DApp, Geminis Network, aims to bring Ethereum interoperability (eWASM + EVM) on a single platform to all Polkadots Parashin.
To achieve this, Geminis Network, which proudly calls itself the first parachute built by cutting-edge technology group ParaState, is trying to win a shot at the Polkadot group auction.
Auction winnings are based on polls from the Polkadot and ParaState communities, and if voted on, Geminis Network will win a seat as one of Polkadot’s ParaStates and be crowdsourced.
Geminis shares some thoughts on this, saying, “The Geminis network needs the support of the ParaState community and Polkadot, the owners of DOT. Following the ethics of decentralized governance, your voice can help Geminis Network become Polkadot’s parachain. the right to vote for the Gemini Network parachain network in the Polkadot Collective Auction enables technology that makes it easier for developers to build high-performance blockchain applications and infrastructure.”
