About Blockchains

What is Optimism?


Optimism provides a Layer 2 scaling fix for Ethereum, greatly boosting its scalability and cutting down on gas fees. It maintains robust security measures and guarantees a smooth development experience. Through Optimistic Rollups, it enables swift transaction processing, positioning Ethereum as a viable option for deploying intricate and interactive applications.

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.
