Parity Technologies builds core infrastructure to power a better internet—one that respects the freedom and data of individuals—and to empower developers to create better services through decentralised tech. Parity’s technologies include Substrate, a flexible framework for building blockchains and Polkadot, a protocol for connecting and securing blockchains.
