about gear

What is Gear?

Gear is creating a network to make deploying on Polkadot as easy & efficient as possible.

This will enable developers to build their dApps on Polkadot and Kusama, to take advantage of the benefits of their respective ecosystems, without the traditional significant time and financial expenses.

to Develop

The main engine of the Gear network is a smart contract module. In Gear’s case, any smart contract is a WebAssembly program compiled in different languages, such as Rust, C, C++, etc. It has a low entry barrier for developers from outside the crypto world because they can build smart contracts in a familiar environment. It is easier for developers to experiment with smart-contract programming languages.

  • Persistent memory for immutable programs
  • Asynchronous message handling
  • A minimal, intuitive, and sufficient API surface for blockchain context

To Scale

The problem with becoming a Polkadot parachain is that there is an extremely high entry cost as thousands of projects are competing against each other to win one of a limited number of slots. On top of that, deploying as a parachain can be very time consuming and in some cases, it can even take up to a year!

However by deploying on Gear, developers can launch their dApps easily & efficiently and enter the interoperable Polkadot ecosystem without having to win an auction or become a parachain. This means that developers can enter one of the most promising blockchain networks without having to cough up the significantly high financial and time costs.

Gear makes deploying your dApps cheap, fast and efficient.
