The Polkadot Wiki report wrote, “Integrating Statemint with your systems provides a number of benefits for developers and users.”

  • Network asset support (including CBDC).
  • Lower transaction fees.
  • Lower deposits (around 1 / 11) compared to Relay Chain. This includes regular and proxy / multisig deposits.
  • The ability to pay for transactions on certain assets. In this case, the account does not need to have a DOT in the account to pay commissions.

The above changes will also affect the Kusama testnet, which belongs to Polkadot.

If approved, the Polkadot ecosystem will attract new customers, this will help its wider adoption and possibly increase the price of DOT.

Essentially , Polkadot parachain does not support any assets other than DOT. The same goes for the Kusama network as well as its own KSM token. Only the Statemint and Statemine parachains have this option.

Referendum 46 involves upgrading Shell parachains to parachains and the Statemint interface. This will allow Polkadot users to issue their assets and NFTs online.
