Polygon - The L2 multiverse for Ethereum

The Polygon Network is a high-throughput blockchain with consensus provided by a group of Block Producers selected by stakeholders at each checkpoint. The sidechain mechanism of Polygon has enabled running multiple transactions in under 3 seconds.

At the time of writing this, 1.8 billion transactions were processed on Polygon. Using Polygon, users are saving approximately $140M in gas fees on average every day.

A sneak peek of some of Polygon’s scaling solutions:

  1. Polygon PoS - Faster speed and savings through secure side chains
  2. Polygon Edge- Framework for building private or public Ethereum-compatible blockchain networks
  3. Polygon Nightfall - Hybrid optimistic-ZK rollup for efficient, secure, and decentralized business transactions

Polygon is for builders. By reducing the entry barrier and offering tools, documentation, and community, Polygon is a true enabler for those who wish to build, test, and deploy for web3. In the DeFi space alone, as many as 619 apps were either built or scaled with Polygon.

Polygon’s ecosystem is akin to a beehive — a carefully designed network that has something for everyone who is passionate about web3 and thrives on community participation.
