What is Polygon (MATIC)?

The Polygon Network, formerly known as Matic Network, is a "Layer 2" blockchain that works alongside Ethereum to make transactions quicker and cheaper. You can think of it as a shortcut to help speed up processes in the often congested Ethereum network. This is where the Matic token comes into play - it's the cryptocurrency that powers the Polygon platform and is used to pay for transaction fees, participate in proof-of-stake consensus, and contribute to network security.

Polygon was founded by Jaynti Kanani, Sandeep Nailwal, and Anurag Arjun back in 2017. They were all passionate about blockchain technology and wanted to overcome some of Ethereum's scaling issues. Thus, Matic Network was created, later rebranding to Polygon in February 2021. They've been making strides ever since to help developers create decentralized applications (dApps) more effectively.
