Polkadot Philosophy Introduction

Greetings, Polkadot Community,

I’m Jimmy, a Polkadot Senior Ambassador with more than two years of active contributions to our vibrant ecosystem. My journey has included running validator instances for Polkadot and Kusama and crafting high-quality educational content. But that’s just the beginning.

Today, I’m thrilled to introduce you to the newest initiative I decided to take - Polkadot Philosophy.


While several educational resources for Polkadot exist, none offer a holistic, sequential learning journey that begins with foundational topics like consensus mechanisms and advances to more sophisticated theories such as Blockspace over Blockchains or Execution Cores.

Polkadot Philosophy is established and designed to fill this unmet need.

Mission Statement

  1. Immediate Focus: To launch an inaugural educational series—EduSeries—that builds understanding from the ground up. It will cover the spectrum from Polkadot’s foundational elements, like the Consensus, Substrate framework, and Parachains, to advanced theories like Asynchronous Backing and Core Time Marketplaces.
  2. Long-Term Vision: To develop Polkadot Philosophy into a universally recognized, ‘common good’ educational platform that welcomes high-quality contributions from community members and thought leaders alike.

Strategic Goals

  1. Educate: To act as a one-stop, comprehensive educational resource that offers structured learning, catering to various competency levels within the Polkadot ecosystem.
  2. Engage: To create an environment that stimulates intellectual discussions and collaborative problem-solving among Polkadot community members.
  3. Elevate: To continually update and improve the curriculum, ensuring it remains at the cutting edge of Polkadot’s ever-changing ecosystem.
  4. Empower: To offer actionable guides and toolkits, thus enabling informed and effective participation in the Polkadot community.

Value Propositions

  • Structured Learning Path: Unlike fragmented resources, Polkadot Philosophy offers a step-by-step educational roadmap.
  • Quality Assurance: Commitment to high academic and technical rigor in all published content.
  • Transparency and Accountability: Regular updates on content rollouts, future directions, and milestone achievements.

The cornerstone of Polkadot Philosophy will be the EduSeries, setting the bar for educational quality and completeness. As we mature, we envisage partnerships with Polkadot Collectives and a gradual platform opening to vetted contributors.

Your active engagement is not just welcomed—it’s crucial. Your feedback and contributions will help shape Polkadot Philosophy into a cornerstone educational resource for the Polkadot ecosystem.

With this introduction, I invite You to check out the first installment of Polkadot Philosophy EduSeries:

EduSeries #1: Polkadot — More Than Just a Blockchain

Sincerely, Jimmy
