If you are new to the Polkadot ecosystem it can be challenging to determine which projects are legitimate. In this article, we will give you some insight into the Polkadot landscape so that you can be better prepared.
Do Your Own Research (DYOR)
Polkadot is a decentralized network – this means that any project can decide to build on it. There is no central authority to approve or confirm this. The best way to decide the legitimacy of a project is to do your own research (DYOR). This guide might help you in that regard.
There are community-managed websites that can be used as a resource to help identify and list genuine and reputable projects building on Polkadot.
The websites Dotinsights and Parachains.info list many projects that are building on Polkadot, and are community-curated sites for sharing news on Polkadot and Kusama projects.
‼️ IMPORTANT These websites can be a useful resource for learning more about the Polkadot ecosystem, but their accuracy (or objectivity) cannot be guaranteed. Use them as an additional tool to help you in your own research.
