DOT token'ı 4 farklı amaca hizmet eder:
ağ üzerinden yönetişim, operasyon, birlikte çalışabilirlik ve bağlanma.
DOT sahipleri Polkadot’un geleceğini kontrol eder. Diğer platformlarda madencilere özel olan tüm ayrıcalıklar, protokol yükseltmeleri ve düzeltmeleri gibi istisnai olayların yönetilmesi de dahil olmak üzere, aktarma zinciri katılımcılarına (DOT sahipleri) verilir.
Oyun teorisi, token sahiplerinin dürüst şekilde davranmalarını teşvik eder. İyi oyuncular bu mekanizma ile ödüllendirilirken, kötü oyuncular ağdaki paylarını kaybederler. Bu da ağın güvenli kalmasını sağlar.
Tokenların bağlanmasıyla yeni parachainler (paralel zincirler) eklenir. Eski veya kullanışlı olmayan parachainler, bağlı tokenların yok edilmesiyle ortadan kaldırılır. Bu bir Proof-of-Stake biçimidir.

What are the functions of DOT within Polkadot? keyboard_arrow_right
DOT will serve three key functions in Polkadot, namely (i) providing governance for the network, (ii) operating the network, and (iii) creating parachains by bonding DOT.
The first function of DOT is to entitle holders to complete governance control over the platform. Included in this governance function is determining the fees of the network, the auction dynamics and schedule for the addition of parachains, and exceptional events such as upgrades and fixes to the Polkadot platform. These functions are not formally granted to DOT holders, but rather the underlying code of Polkadot will enable DOT holders to participate in governance.
The second function of DOT will be to facilitate the consensus mechanism that underpins Polkadot. In order for the platform to function and allow for valid transactions to be carried out across parachains, Polkadot will rely on DOT holders to play active roles. Participants will put their DOT at risk (referred to as “staking” or “bonding”) to perform these functions, which acts as a disincentive for malicious participation in the network. DOT required to participate in the network will vary according to the activity undertaken, the duration DOT is staked for, and the total number of DOT staked.
The third function of DOT will be the ability to add new parachains by tying up DOT (referred to as “bonding”). The DOT will be locked during their bonding period and will be released back to the account that bonded them after the duration of the bond has elapsed and the parachain is removed.
What rights will DOT confer on their holders? keyboard_arrow_rightDOT holders will have certain functions within the Polkadot platform, including:
- The ability to act as a validator, collator, nominator or fisherman.
- The ability to participate in the governance of Polkadot.
- The ability to be a collator for a parathread by making bids for block inclusion that are denominated in DOT.
- The ability to participate in the decision-making process in relation to global upgrades and/or changes to Polkadot.
