What is a Polygon blockchain and MATIC coin?

Polygon (formerly the Matic Network) is a platform for scaling Ethereum and developing the network infrastructure.

The Polygon project effectively converts Ethereum into a multichain system, so-called the Internet of Blockchains. As with other multichain systems, like Polkadot, Cosmos, Polygon also has the advantages of Ethereum like high transaction security, open-source nature, and high liquidity.

Proof-of-stake blockchain architecture is combined with the Plasma Framework in Polygon. Vitalik Buterin, the co-founder of Ethereum, created the Plasma framework to allow smart contracts to be executed in an automated and scalable way.

The project team states that Polygon can handle up to 65,000 transactions per second on a single side chain, with a block confirmation time of fewer than two seconds. The framework also facilitates the development of globally available decentralized financial applications.

History of Polygon

The project was originally called the Matic Network, and it was developed in India in 2017. Jayanti Kanani, Sandeep Nailwal, Anurag Arjun, and Mihailo Bjelic are the main contributors to the project.

A recent launch of the Matic Network revealed some of the top names in decentralized finance, such as MakerDAO and Decentraland, to join. In February 2021, Matic Network was rebranded to Polygon. For the moment of writing this article, the coin is included in the top-20 according to the market capitalization.
