Polkadot creator Gavin Wood says the close competition is “what we want.”

“There’s real competition and this is really what we want with the auction,” Wood said. “It’s something that wouldn’t really have happened in a traditional auction, where they would have kept very low, all the way until the end, and then they would have put everything that they had in as late as possible.”
