We are excited to announce that Polygon (MATIC) is now available for buying, trading, and transfers on the Voyager app!

Polygon describes itself as, “The protocol for building and connecting Ethereum compatible networks, aggregating scalable solutions on Ethereum and supporting a multichain Ethereum ecosystem.”

Polygon was originally the Matic network, a platform initially founded in 2017 in an attempt to solve for scalability and network congestion issues on Ethereum. Matic eventually rebranded into Polygon, which went live in 2020 and uses a multi-layer process to allow for building and connecting to the Ethereum network.

Polygon is one of the most well-adopted and fastest-growing Ethereum Layer 2 scaling solutions and decentralized application ecosystems. It boasts features such as interoperability, modularity, and, of course, scalability and security. By having an Ethereum layer, Polygon can be used for a wide range of projects and applications that can be interchangeable between Ethereum and the Polygon network.

You can read more about Polygon on their website.
