About Blockchains

What is Starknet?


Starknet stands as a permissionless blockchain solution, functioning as a Validity-Rollup, often referred to as a zero-knowledge rollup (ZK rollup) for Ethereum. It's a Layer 2 (L2) platform that empowers dApps to achieve significant computational scalability while upholding Ethereum's inherent composability and security standards.

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.
