As a member of the EEA, Polygon is part of the EEA community of organizations working to advance Ethereum and drive its adoption by industry. In the Q&A below, the EEA asked Nitin Goyal about how Polygon is working with the ecosystem to help Ethereum reach its full potential.
Please briefly introduce yourself and your company.
I lead Corporate Engagement for Polygon and have been active in the blockchain industry since 2015. Polygon is the premier, well-structured, easy-to-use platform for scaling and developing Ethereum infrastructure. . The Polygon POS chain is designed for flexibility and independence. The recently announced Polygon SDK is a modular and flexible framework that supports the creation and connection of secure chains such as Plasma, Optimistic Rollups, zkRollups, Validium, etc. and autonomous chains with their own specific consensus mechanisms. Polygon’s scaling solutions have been widely adopted with over 350 Dapps, ~ 94M transactions, and ~ 1M unique users.
What brought you to the EEA and why did you decide to become a member?
As an integral part of the Ethereum community, Polygon is focused on growing the associated ecosystem. Our engagement with the EEA helps us drive this adoption, whether it’s related to the backbone or L2-based scaling solutions. We plan to actively participate in EEA interest groups with a focus on L2 scaling solutions.
How will the EEA improve your organization’s current efforts?
EEA brings us community engagement with task forces and interest groups. Since our end goal is to have organizations adopt and use Ethereum-based technology in their regular business operations, engagement with the EEA helps us standardize the Ethereum ecosystem so that it is easy to create, deploy and develop solutions on the same platforms.
What are you currently working on with regards to Ethereum? How will end users benefit from your work?
Polygon strives to improve the blockchain (POS, Plasma) scaling solutions that we have deployed. We are very happy to see the adoption of Polygon by various companies for various use cases. The recently announced Polygon SDK is a modular and extensible framework for building blockchain networks compatible with Ethereum. The SDK will allow companies to have several options to deploy blockchain solutions to meet the needs of their end customers. We are also working on other exciting technologies which will be announced in due course. We believe that businesses can benefit significantly from Ethereum technologies and are delighted to collaborate within the EEA and with other members of the EEA.
