The Ethereum community is hoping that the launch of its London hard fork upgrade will answer the daunting issues surrounding the network’s high gas fees with the implementation of EIP-1559. But Sandeep Nailwal, COO of Polygon, argues that there is still a long way to go to improve the scalability of the platform.
Polygon is a platform for Ethereum scaling and infrastructure development, as well as for networking Ethereum-compatible blockchains.
The Ethereum ecosystem has been eagerly awaiting the upcoming Ethereum 2.0 upgrade to potentially improve the network’s scalability issues. But while the wait carries on, Polygon — formerly known as Matic Network — has pulled the trigger to provide scaling capabilities now.
Nailwal argues that even after ETH 2.0, scaling solutions such as Polygon will still have a place in the Ethereum ecosystem.
