About Blockchains

What is Cronos?

Cronos emerges as an interoperable blockchain, streamlining the migration of applications and crypto assets from various chains while prioritizing low transaction costs, rapid throughput, and fast finalization times. It operates as an Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM)-compatible chain, augmented with support for Inter-Blockchain Communications (IBC) networks based on the Cosmos SDK. This integration empowers developers to create and launch dApps atop the EVM infrastructure.

What is Polygon?

Polygon, formerly Matic Network, is a blockchain platform designed to establish a multi-chain system compatible with Ethereum. It employs a proof-of-stake consensus mechanism similar to Ethereum for on-chain transactions, with its native token being MATIC. Functioning as a "layer two" or "sidechain" scaling solution alongside Ethereum, Polygon facilitates quicker transactions and lower fees. Its inception aimed to tackle Ethereum's major challenges, including high fees, subpar user experience, and limited transaction throughput, aspiring to create an "Ethereum's internet of blockchains" or a multi-chain ecosystem of Ethereum-compatible blockchains.
