As a layer 2 scaling solution, Polygon (MATIC) aims to make transactions on the Ethereum network faster and cheaper. To do this, Polygon uses so-called sidechains that work alongside the Ethereum blockchain to perform off-chain computations. In short: Polygon wants to make Ethereum simpler and more suitable for the masses. The scaling solution has seen some success recently. Companies from a wide variety of industries have committed to Polygon. Below you will find an overview of the most important projects.

Probably the most recent partnership Polygon has formed is with Warner Music Group and e-commerce company LGND. The result of the cooperation should be a Web3 music platform on which NFT songs can be played and exchanged.
The launch is planned for 2023. Other blockchains will also be supported in the future. More information on this here.
