Polygon’s multichain system has helped reduce gas fees and greatly increase transaction speeds while maintaining network security. The framework is designed to be developer-friendly, and teams can deploy preset blockchain networks in one click while also making use of modules to create custom networks.

Founded by Jaynti Kanani, Sandeep Nailwal, Anurag Arjun, and Mihailo Bjelic in 2017. The project is open source and rebranded from MATIC to Polygon. Advisors to the project include Hudson Jameson, Ryan Sean Adams, Anthony Sassano, Pete Kim, and John Lilic.

Since its inception, Polygon has consistently made progress in its technical development and expansion into the Ethereum ecosystem. 2021, in particular, has been a phenomenal year for the project, which now sees prominent names hopping on board.

Polygon grows as more take to its solution

Polygon has not slowed down, both in terms of business and technical aspects. It has received funding from multiple sources, besides getting some of the biggest names on board.

Among those are Ernst and Young, which will use Polygon for enterprise Ethereum scaling. Cream Finance and Set Protocol have also been launched on the network. Polygon is also expanding into the non-fungible token (NFT) space, with a new division focused on gaming and NFTs. The first project launched by Polygon Studios is the Rario NFT platform.

As for technical developments, the team released a general-purpose blockchain called Avail. The latter offers standalone chains and sidechains with arbitrary execution environments. It comes with multiple features to make the launch and handling of the blockchain easier. With the market’s trend towards NFTs, it is also working on providing extra security to NFTs and dApps in collaboration with Aleph.im.
