Diksia.com - is the world's largest for decentralized applications, but it also faces some challenges, such as low scalability, high gas fees, and poor user experience.

How can these challenges be solved? One possible solution is , a multi-chain system that offers Ethereum-compatible and solutions for decentralized applications.

In this article, we will explore what Polygon is, how it works, why it is important, and what are its advantages and disadvantages.

We will also look at the history, technology, market, and investment aspects of Polygon. Let's get started!

Polygon Introduction

Polygon () is a Layer-2 scaling solution for Ethereum. It is designed to improve the scalability and performance of Ethereum by providing a way to execute transactions off-chain and then settle them on-chain. This allows for faster and cheaper transactions, while still maintaining the security and decentralization of Ethereum.

Polygon Details:

Name Polygon
Symbol MATIC
Type ERC-20 token
Launch date October 2017
Consensus mechanism Proof-of-Stake
Total supply 10 billion MATIC
Circulating supply 9.3 billion MATIC

What is Polygon?

Polygon is a protocol and framework for building and connecting Ethereum-compatible networks. It is not a single blockchain, but rather a collection of interconnected blockchains that work together to provide scalability, security, and flexibility.

Polygon (previously Matic Network) is a platform for Ethereum scaling and infrastructure development. Its core component is Polygon SDK, a modular, flexible framework that supports building multiple types of applications.

Using Polygon, one can create optimistic rollup chains, ZK rollup chains, stand alone chains or any other kind of infra required by the developer.

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. with the advantages of Ethereum's security, vibrant ecosystem and openness.

The MATIC token is the native token of the Polygon network. It is used to pay for transaction fees, participate in governance, and secure the network. The $MATIC token will continue to exist and will play an increasingly important role, securing the system and enabling governance.
