What is Polygon?
Polygon is the first well-structured, easy-to-use platform for Ethereum scaling and infrastructure development.
Polygon effectively transforms Ethereum into a full-fledged multi-chain system (aka Internet of Blockchains). This multi-chain system is akin to other ones such as Polkadot, Cosmos, Avalanche etc, but with at least three major upsides:
It is able to fully benefit from Ethereum’s network effects.
- It is inherently more secure.
- It is more open and powerful.
Polygon SDK will support other major Layer 2 solutions such as Optimistic Rollups, zkRollups, Validium etc, thus basically becoming a one-of-a-kind “Layer 2 aggregator”.
Polygon’s scaling solutions have seen widespread adoption with over 140 dApps, ~17 Million txns and ~320,000 unique wallets, making it the only production ready chain - enabling high-quality user experiences for top dApps like Polymarket, Aave, Aavegotchi, Decentral Games, and Neon District.
