As an EEA member, Polygon is part of the EEA community of organizations working to advance Ethereum and drive industry adoption. In the Q&A below, the EEA interviewed Nitin Goyal on the ways Polygon works with the ecosystem to help Ethereum reach its full potential.
Please introduce your company and yourself briefly.
I lead the enterprise engagement for Polygon and have been active in the blockchain industry since 2015. Polygon is the first well-structured, easy-to-use platform for Ethereum scaling and infrastructure development. The Polygon POS chain is designed for flexibility and independence. The recently announced Polygon SDK is a modular, flexible framework that supports building and connecting Secured Chains like Plasma, Optimistic Rollups, zkRollups, Validium, etc. and Standalone Chains with their own specific consensus mechanisms. Polygon’s scaling solutions have seen widespread adoption with 350+ Dapps, ~94M transactions and ~1M unique users.
What first brought you to the EEA, and why did you decide to become a member?
As an integral part of the Ethereum community, Polygon is focused on growing the associated ecosystem. Our engagement with EEA helps us drive this adoption, whether it is related to the mainnet or the L2-based scaling solutions. We are planning to be actively involved in EEA’s Interest Groups with a focus on L2 scaling solutions.
How will the EEA enhance your organization’s current efforts?
EEA brings us engagement from the community with working groups and interest groups. Since our end purpose is to have organizations adopt and use Ethereum based technology in their regular business operations, engagement with EEA helps us standardize the Ethereum ecosystem so that it’s easy to build, deploy and scale solutions on the same platforms.
What are you currently working on with regards to Ethereum? How will end-users benefit from your work?
Polygon is working to enhance the present blockchain scaling solutions (POS, Plasma based) we have deployed. We are very excited to see the adoption of Polygon by various enterprises for diverse use cases. The Polygon SDK, which has been announced recently, is a modular and extensible framework for building Ethereum-compatible blockchain networks. The SDK will allow enterprises to have multiple options to deploy blockchain solutions to address their end customer needs. We are also working on other exciting technologies which will be announced in due course of time. We believe enterprises can significantly benefit from Ethereum technologies and are excited to collaborate within the EEA and with other EEA members.
