Previously Matic Network.
Polygon, previously Matic Network, is Ethereum's Internet of blockchains, aims to transform Ethereum into a multi-chain ecosystem with secured Layer 2 chains and standalone chains. Decentralized Apps are making huge progress but the current blockchain ecosystem is not prepared to scale as per the demand. Slow block confirmations and high gas fees need to be solved before we target mass adoption by mainstream users. And most importantly, it needs awesome user experience. We aim to change that by simplifying the interaction between users and the decentralized world. We want to make interacting with the decentralized ecosystem so easy that anyone can do so without worrying about the complexity of the system.
