What is the vision of Polygon?
In the past year alone, Polygon has transformed from a platform used by only 30 teams to one that is relied upon by over 3000 different applications. Even our name changed – from MATIC network to Polygon. Despite these big changes, our vision and mission have remained the same since day one. Polygon seeks to onboard the next billion users to Ethereum. Because we are still in the early days of crypto adoption, we want to do everything we can to encourage innovation. This is why Polygon backs promising projects in the DeFi and NFT spaces and why we host competitions to reward the best teams in crypto. Whether by offering our technical expertise or by providing financial support, we want to collaborate with other teams to bring the next billion users to Ethereum and to crypto.
What makes Polygon so unique?
At Polygon we strive to play an integral and important part of the Ethereum ecosystem, and we will always work in the best interest of Ethereum and its amazing community and users. We are technologically agnostic. We believe different scaling solutions can be useful for different purposes. As such, anything that scales Ethereum is considered. We seek to transform Polygon into a fully fledged multi-chain system.
How does blockchain technology help to achieve your goals?
At Polygon, blockchain technology is our bread and butter. We know that as Ethereum currently stands, it cannot possibly onboard the next billion users to crypto. This is why Polygon develops scaling solutions to make the Ethereum blockchain accessible to the next billion users. Our goal is to make the world more open and transparent and to onboard the next billion users to crypto. Blockchain is the tool with which we can reach such goals.
What will the world in ten years look like?
At Polygon we see a future where value can move as freely as information. A future unencumbered by the legacy technology infrastructure of yesterday. We see a world that is becoming more open and transparent. We foresee a world where everyone can have access to essential banking services. Polygon wants to play a small part in helping move towards that world.
What motivates you to be a sponsor at the Blockchance conference?
One of the things that makes the blockchain ecosystem so strong is that it can draw on talent irrespective of geography. Like blockchain technology, teams in the blockchain ecosystem are decentralized. Polygon is no different. Polygon prides itself on being a truly international company with a team spread out over 6 continents. Being an international organization means building a presence across geographies. Blockchance is the leading blockchain event on the European continent. We want to be a part of the conversation taking place in Europe. Moreover, we believe our mission is well aligned with the vision laid out by Blockchance. Blockchance hopes that blockchain can be used to reach a positive, and sustainable future. We similarly believe blockchain can be used to improve humanity and we want to do our part in making blockchain accessible to people across the globe.
Polygon immensely contributes to a future of equality and sustainability by making blockchain accessible for everyone. Polygon also is an official sponsor at the BLOCKCHANCE Europe 2021 conference.
