Why join the Polkadot Alpha Program?

The term "Alpha" comes from alpha testing, a form of pre-production testing and iteration of product development. The program aims to enable your team to tap into Polkadot’s ecosystem of resources and bring your product into production while contributing to feedback for Polkadot’s ecosystem.
