Crypto Asset Statement

What is Polkadot (DOT)?

Created by a former co-founder of Ethereum, Polkadot is a platform that seeks to connect multiple blockchain networks into an 'Internet of Blockchains'. It accomplishes this with its unique use of a main 'Relay Chain' where transactions are agreed upon, plus user-generated 'Parachains'. Unlike Bitcoin’s proof-of-work system, Polkadot uses a proof-of-stake consensus mechanism to secure the network, verify transactions, and create and distribute new DOT. You can buy and sell DOT for any major cryptocurrency, like BTC, ETH, and XRP or traditional currency such as Canadian Dollar, US Dollar, and Euro. Trading cryptocurrencies is like foreign exchange of traditional currencies – you trade DOT for BTC the same way you trade CAD for USD. You can also trade DOT to CAD based on the DOT price.
