Substrate has achieved a major milestone; the blockchain framework has released version 2.0, which is also compatible with Polkadot, which, along with Kusama, is already running the latest version.
Polkadot (DOT), built on Substrate, is currently the 6th largest cryptocurrency with a market cap of $3.74 billion, currently trading at $4.40.

Polkadot blockchain developer, Parity Technologies announced the launch of the second version of its blockchain building kit on Wednesday. This blockchain framework basically allows you to create and customize the blockchain “precisely” for your application or business. The new release provides the developers with additional tools to do just that.
With an aim to develop a Web 3.0, Substrate acts as a tooling kit for developers making their own blockchains that are interoperable with Ethereum’s co-founder Gavin Woods’ Polkadot.
The new release comes with 70 composable “modules” called “pallets” to play with various design ideas. These pallets, which can be developed using FRAME, help add basic and extended functionality.
“Substrate 2.0 comes with many new pallets that will help you quickly and easily build and deploy your blockchain runtime with the right properties for you and your network.”
Version 2.0 also includes modules for getting off-chain data on the blockchain. This new feature called off-chain workers communicates with the main chain to keep all network participants up to date and remove the massive data sets and intensive processes. Parity states,
“Substrate 2.0 comes with a suite of pallets to make data integration much more efficient for blockchains that depend on existing and/or real-world data.”
