DotSama is a new piece of crypto slang, used to describe the Kusama and Polkadot ecosystems in just one word.

What Is DotSama?

DotSama is a handy way to refer to Polkadot (DOT) and Kusama (KSM) in just one word. Most likely having originated on Twitter, DotSama refers to both emerging ecosystems in the crypto space.

Polkadot can be described as a sharded level-0 metaprotocol that allows multiple blockchain networks to operate together, while Kusama is known as Polkadot’s canary network.

Next time you want to talk about both Polkadot and Kusama, don’t waste your time typing out their two names — just refer to “DotSama,” and Twitter will know exactly what you’re talking about.
