Polygon is a protocol and a framework for building and connecting Ethereum-compatible blockchain networks.

Basic Information

With Polygon, any project can easily spin-up a dedicated blockchain network which combines the best features of standalone blockchains (sovereignty, scalability and flexibility) and Ethereum (security, interoperability and developer experience). Additionally, these blockchains are compatible with all the existing Ethereum tools (Metamask, MyCrypto, Remix etc), and can exchange messages among themselves and with Ethereum. Polygon technology is materialised through two major components: Polygon framework and Polygon protocol. Polygon supports two major types of Ethereum-compatible blockchain networks: standalone networks and networks that leverage “security as a service”. Polygon chains can use Ethereum, the most secure programmable blockchain in the world, to host and execute any mission-critical component of their logic. See more
