How does Polygon Solve Ethereum Issues?

Polygon’s Architecture

How are sidechains being built?

  • Plasma Chains: A layer-2 solution with Ethereum’s secure infrastructure to build dApps off-chain.
  • Optimistic Rollups: Executes transactions off-chain and submits only proof of fraud to the main blockchain if an invalid block is discovered.
  • zk-Rollups: Authorizes multiple transfers to be bundled into a single transaction. Requires submitting only the proof of validity to the main Ethereum chain.
  • Validum Chains: Similar to ZK Rollups, this layer-2 solution keeps data availability off-chain to prevent funds from being stolen.
  • Stand-Alone Chains: Secured by Validators, these independent Ethereum side chains can be connected to the main blockchain via bridges.
  • Shared Security Chains: Blockchain-as-a-service, operates on a validation service that is provided by a shared pool of PoS validators.

MATIC: Polygon’s Native Token

  • Completing transactions on the platform
  • Drive development across the network
  • Staking and paying for transaction fees
