Tokens

  • Governance — token holders can vote for protocol upgrades and new feature proposals
  • Staking — you can stake your tokens in favor of the Polkadots security model. Honest validators are being rewarded by the network for their stake
  • Bonding — parachains are winning their slots by locking up DOT tokens
  • Fees — for message passing between the parachains
