Why Is It Moving? Polkadot announced Monday that a motion to enable parachain registration and crowdlaons has passed the project’s council and gone to a public referendum.
The motion to enable parachain registration and crowdloans has passed Polkadot’s council and been sent to a public referendum. If passed, parachain teams will be able to register their parachain and open their crowdloan on Nov. 4, 2021 at approx. 19:15 CET. https://t.co/5ouDWBmnvc

If the referendum is passed, teams would be able to register their parachains and open crowdloans beginning Thursday.
In October, Parity Technologies, a blockchain infrastructure company, had said parachains would come to the network. Parachains are full blockchains inserted into Polkadot’s network that help with validation of transactions, reported Decrypt.
Polkadot was trending on CoinMarketCap at press time. The token was not highly mentioned on Twitter and was referred to in 2,354 tweets, as per Cointrendz data. The top mentioned cryptocurrency, Bitcoin, attracted 9,232 tweets.
Polkadot is a so-called Ethereum-killer, which saw record gains earlier this year partly due to high transaction fees on Ethereum’s network.
