Analysis of Polkadot

Polkadot as a service provider

The current state of Polkadot can be compared to a modern-day ISP (internet service provider), where Polkadot is essentially providing access, or specifically, local connectivitiy to web3.

Polkadot would require another means (or another layer) of communication to connect directly and communicate with chains that speak different languages.

Polkadot as a management system

Polkadot manages a subset of the world's hardware resources through its active validator set. In principle, Polkadot is a management system that maintains its system through on-chain governance.

Polkadot's approach to management starts with sharding, creating a set of parachain slots that serve as dedicated CPU cores.
