Previously known as the Matic Network, Polygon positions itself as "Ethereum's internet of blockchains" aiming to transform Ethereum into a multi-chain ecosystem. To connect Ethereum with compatible blockchain networks, Polygon offers a full suite of products to improve the scalability, interoperability and modularity of blockchains. The multi-chain ecosystem allows different blockchains to exchange messages and access existing Ethereum tools and apps, such as MetaMask. The protocol also enables "zero-gas" transactions for users and developers. Polygon is operated by four co-founders and prominent crypto industry advisors.
