About The Polygon
Polygon provides the core components and tools to join the new, borderless economy and society. Two key platforms materialize it: The polygon framework and the Polygon protocol.
With these technologies, any project can quickly spin up a dedicated blockchain network that combines the best features of “stand-alone blockchains (sovereignty, scalability, and flexibility) and Ethereum (security, interoperability and developer experience).”
Plus, these blockchains are friendly with all the existing Ethereum tools such as Metamask, MyCrypto, Remix, etc. So again, the exchange of information among themselves and with Ethereum is facilitated.
