9. Polkadot’s decentralization journey: Insights from Forbes

Forbes featured Polkadot, the brainchild of Ethereum co-founder Gavin Wood, acknowledging its ascent since the 2020 launch. Despite recent performance challenges, Polkadot’s strategic shift towards decentralization is drawing attention.

Giotto De Filippi, a Polkadot activist, underscores the impact: “Parity is absolutely amazing when it comes to its core function — engineering — but there was an opportunity to improve in many other areas. Decentralizing the functions outside of engineering to the community and allowing OpenGov to take charge has been an incredibly powerful catalyst for change and success. The community took charge in a permissionless way, and that change happened very quickly. We went from basically zero marketing a few months ago to having just hired some of the best influencers — all in a completely transparent and decentralized way — thanks to OpenGov.”
