Polkadot is a platform that enables different blockchains to communicate and share their unique features while maintaining security. It is a scalable heterogeneous multi-chain technology, meaning it can accommodate various chains without making assumptions about their nature or structure. Polkadot also offers pooled security and trust-free interchain transactability.
Many parachains in Polkadot are developed using the Polkadot Runtime Environment SDK, such as Parity Technologies' Substrate.
