Polygon is an EVM compatible sidechain and a Layer-2 scaling solution for Ethereum. It is designed to increase transaction throughput and lower transaction fees for Ethereum users and developers by connecting stand-alone and secured blockchains to the network.

The protocol uses a Proof-of-Stake (PoS) consensus mechanism for the verification of transactions. It started from an adapted implementation of the Plasma framework for Ethereum, but the “vision” of the development team is to provide side chain scaling solutions for blockchains in general.

Along that line, Polygon provides many solutions and useful features such as:

  • Deploy existing blockchain networks and develop custom blockchains
  • Enable communicate between Ethereum and other blockchains
  • Help existing blockchain networks to become compatible with Ethereum
