For the past few months, r/Polkadot has been exclusively dedicated to Polkadot news, its technology and its ecosystem. Each post is manually approved by mods as we aim for relevant and qualitative posts. This goes against the mainstream and has most likely affected the growth of this community, but we hope our efforts to keep this community safe, welcoming, and well informed are visible. If you are new, you can read the rules and guidelines here.
A special thank you to the members who show up regularly (active community members) who post interesting content but who also devote time and energy to helping other members. Hope you all enjoy reading posts, interacting with one another, and learning more about Polkadot.

I've been skeptic for a long time about cryptocurrencies until I found out one could use the blockchain and the distributed computing power for utilitarian purposes (making apps), but I'm still educating myself and some things aren't really clear to me so pardon me if I'm misuing some terms and thanks in advance to anyone who could correct me and give me a clearer picture.
Can you guys suggest me if polkadot/substrate is what I'm looking for? I would like to make an app for agriculture and use the blockchain as a mean of data storage and distributed computing, but since reading about substrate I tought it could be a good idea to create my own substrate-based crypto on the polkadot ecosystem.
Am I looking in the right direction or did I misunderstood the whole thing?
