About Blockchains

What is Hedera?

Hedera operates as a public network employing the hashgraph consensus algorithm for rapid and secure transaction validation. Governed by a council of esteemed organizations, Hedera ensures consistent progress and decentralization. Distinguished by its high throughput, security, and fair transaction ordering, Hedera strives to establish a trust layer for the internet.

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.
