Understanding the Code Structure and Polkadot Ecosystem ​

Lastic and Polkadot: Building on the Broker Pallet ​

Lastic stands as a coretime marketplace operating within the Polkadot ecosystem, originating from the innovative utilization of the broker pallet code. For those beginning their journey with us, a Polkadot wallet is essential. You have the option between Polkadot.js and Talisman to manage your transactions and interact with the ecosystem.

What is Polkadot? ​

Polkadot represents a groundbreaking multi-chain ecosystem designed to enable diverse blockchains to transfer messages and value in a trust-free fashion; think of it as a network of networks. Central to its architecture are four main networks: Polkadot, Kusama, Rococo, and Westend, with the latter two serving as testnets. This structure comprises a single relay chain (the backbone) and multiple parachains (individual blockchains) for specialized operations. Lastic primarily interacts with the Coretime chain, a system chain focusing on optimized and agile block space allocation.

Getting Started with Rococo Test Money ​

To experiment and test functionalities without real-world stakes, you can obtain Rococo testnet tokens from the Polkadot faucet. This is an excellent way to familiarize yourself with transactions and smart contract interactions within a safe environment.

Basic Interaction and Exploration ​

For those new to blockchain or seeking to understand the basics of interacting with the Polkadot ecosystem, the polkadot.js interface is an invaluable resource. Here, you can explore the Coretime chain by navigating to TEST Rococo & Parachains > Coretime chain, offering insights into transactions, blocks, and parachain activities.
