T-Systems MMS will use its infrastructure to participate in the public blockchain network Polkadot as a validator. In addition, T-Systems MMS has acquired DOT tokens, and supports interoperability between decentralized blockchain networks. DOT, the native token of the Polkadot network, is one of the largest cryptocurrencies in the world.
As Deutsche Telekom, we have always supported the collaboration of people and companies, now also with decentralized technologies. Polkadot is a heterogeneous, multi-chain network allowing various blockchains of different characteristics to perform arbitrary, cross-chain communication under shared security. We fully believe in this future vision of a connected world", says Dr. Andreas Dittrich, Head of the Blockchain Solutions Center at T-Systems MMS.
Polkadot is a network for creating interoperability between individual blockchains that operate independently. It is known as a next-generation blockchain project that enables different blockchains to be linked and ensures that different blockchains can communicate with each other. In the long run, this is expected to create a better internet that reduces centralization and thus gives more control to individuals.
