Noodle began on the Stellar blockchain but decided it needed additional throughput for the “next trillion devices” that the Nodle Network intends to connect. In early 2020, the Nodle team began looking for a solution. It saw one in what Polkadot was building. Eliott Teisonniere, Nodle’s Chief Blockchain Officer, began building a new blockchain for Nodle using Substrate, with an eye towards one day integrating into the Polkadot ecosystem as a parachain. Polkadot runs on Substrate, a framework for building scalable, secure, and interoperable blockchains. Now, over a year later, Nodle is ready to join other cutting-edge projects on Polkadot.
