How many Planck are in a DOT? Print
Modified on: Wed, 24 Nov, 2021 at 8:09 PM
A Planck is the base unit (the smallest subdivision) of a DOT.
In the early stages of the network, one DOT contained 1,000,000,000,000 Planck. On August 21, 2020, as a result of the first community vote on Polkadot, redenomination occurred. This date went down in Polkadot history as “Denomination Day”.
Since then, one DOT contains 10,000,000,000 Planck.
The only difference between the old DOT and the new DOT is where the comma is placed in relation to the amount of Planck.
