Introducing the Polygon (MATIC) Bridge

This post was originally published on Zero DEX

Zero Community,

The 0.Exchange team is INCREDIBLY excited to announce that our Polygon (MATIC) bridge is OPERATIONAL! This is an integration that we are beyond thrilled about as it gives us five blockchains that we can now connect (Ethereum, Avalanche, Binance Smart Chain, Moonbeam, and now, Polygon). We are officially a #PentaDEX today!

0.Exchange becomes the first bridge to natively connect Avalanche to Polygon and Binance Smart Chain to Polygon (there are other bridges that go ETH> Polygon>xDai > BSC). This means that ANY PROJECT wanting to onboard their token to Polygon simply needs to reach out to our team, and we’ll make it happen.

Ethereum’s Internet of Blockchains

Polygon combines the best of Ethereum and sovereign blockchains into a full-fledged multi-chain system.

Polygon solves pain points associated with Blockchains, like high gas fees and slow speeds, without sacrificing on security. This multi-chain system is akin to other ones such as Polkadot, Cosmos, Avalanche etc, but with at least three major upsides:

  • It is able to fully benefit from Ethereum’s network effects
  • It is inherently more secure
  • It is more open and powerful

Challenge

  • Low Throughput
  • Poor UX (gas, delayed PoW finality)
  • No sovereignty (shared throughput/clogging risk, tech stack not customizable, governance dependence)

Many projects are exploring Ethereum-compatible blockchains as a way to mitigate these limitations while still leveraging Ethereum’s thriving ecosystem. However, there is no specialized framework to build such blockchains nor a protocol to connect them. This introduces significant development challenges and causes ecosystem fragmentation.

Solution

  • One-click deployment of preset blockchain networks
  • Growing set of modules for developing custom networks
  • Interoperability protocol for exchanging arbitrary messages with Ethereum and other blockchain networks
  • Modular and optional “security as a service”
  • Adaptor modules for enabling interoperability for existing blockchain networks

The 0.Exchange team has always been preaching the ‘power’ of these other networks and blockchains and Polygon is no exception! Let the 0.Exchange team help you onboard your new or existing (Avalanche or Binance Smart Chain) project to Polygon today!
