Innovate without boundaries - Agile Coretime
Polkadot’s Agile Coretime will give you access to the right amount of blockspace for every stage of growth.
Never overpay for blockspace again
Agile Coretime makes sure blockspace resources are optimally allocated across the entire network.
- Bulk coretime
can be purchased in advance and automatically renewed to prevent spiking fees.
- On-demand coretime
can be purchased in small amounts to remove entry barriers.
- Coretime on secondary markets
can be traded to allow for even better resource allocation.
Get ideas to market fast
Agile coretime is currently being fine-tuned and audited.
Coretime will be managed on the Coretime Chain, which serves as a marketplace for all things coretime.
Coretime functions can be accessed either programmatically (e.g. over XCM, or interacting with the Coretime Chain via Polkadot JS libraries), manually e.g. on the Coretime Chain or via XCMs from the parachain), or via a user interface (such as Region X’s coretime interface*).
Purchasing coretime for the first time?
Coretime will be the means by which the Polkadot resources can be accessed. Guides and how-tos on how to purchase coretime will be published soon. Check back here or on the wiki.
Already running on Polkadot?
Existing parachain slots will be migrated to the Coretime Chain automatically and given a lease. The end of the existing slots will be converted to a timeslice in the future, at which point the core can be renewed at the bulk coretime market rate. The parachain will be on the core until the sale interlude after its lease ends, to allow interruption-free usage.
