Parity Technologies, the creators of Polkadot, wrote in a blog post that they will be releasing Substrate 2.0, a modular framework that enables you to build custom blockchains within pre-built components and acts as a tooling kit for developers making their own blockchains with Polkadot. Parity will be hosting a conference for developers on October 15 where they will explain how to work with their new communication and payments layer.
