About Blockchains

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.

What is Solana?


Solana stands out as a high-performance blockchain, celebrated for its scalability, speed, and minimal transaction expenses. Featuring a distinctive consensus mechanism dubbed Proof of History (PoH), Solana achieves remarkable scalability and efficiency. Tailored to accommodate dApps, it excels in processing a vast number of transactions swiftly, thereby slashing processing durations and fees. These attributes make it a compelling platform for developers within the cryptocurrency realm.
