Latest News Polygon: A way around Ethereum’s high gas fees By AtoZcrypto Posted on April 17, 2021 2 min read 0 0 189 If you are a trader of Ethereum or its fan, then you must have heard about Polygon. What is it? It is a scalable sidechain network that is currently housing several Ethereum-based projects. These projects include Aave, Sushiswap, etc. among others, which uses Polygon’s Plasma PoS chain to store contracts. Due to its rising popularity, its overall peaked at $600 million. Ethereum users often complain about high gas fees, a bottleneck that is very real for the network. Polygon has erased much of this bottleneck, by using the concept of EVM-compatible Blockchain, and PoS (Proof of Stake) Blockchain. This network can process 65,000 transactions per second, within 2 seconds. Apart from Aave, and Sushiswap, the network houses Avegotchi, Decentraland, Atari (Blockchain-based games), prediction markets (Polymarket), NFTs like OpenSea, etc. You can find Chainlink too on this network. The reason behind its popularity, according to Sandeep Nailwal (co-founder)is its scalability. EVM compatibility and a stunning developer experience are also the reasons behind that. Anyone can use the Aave protocol on this network for a cheaper price. The main motive behind Polygon is to establish a well-functioning ecosystem for Ethereum, and Blockchain users.
