What is Polygon (Matic)?
In its current state, Ethereum faces some challenges, such as high fees, slow transactions and a sometimes clunky user experience. The goal of Polygon is to help improve on each of these counts, with faster transactions and lower fees.
The other problem Polygon aims to solve is that, at the moment, it’s difficult for most blockchains to communicate together. This is why Polygon is sometimes called “Ethereum’s internet of blockchains”: Its goal is to allow developers to smoothly create their own Ethereum-compatible blockchain.
We’ve been early believers in Polygon, and were the first U.S. regulated exchange to integrate it, offering our customers the quickest and most affordable way to get into the DeFi ecosystem.
The natural next step was to allow our customers to trade MATIC, Polygon’s native token. MATIC is mostly used to:
- Pay for Polygon transaction fees
- Secure the network and earn staking rewards
In line with our willingness to offer easy and affordable ways to hop into DeFi, we offer access to MATIC with a very user-friendly interface and some of the lowest fees around.
The exclusive TMFA x Polygon x Okcoin NFT collection
In collaboration with The Most Famous Artist (TMFA), The Most Famous Artist Community (TMFAC), and Polygon, we’re launching an exclusive Polygon NFT collection to celebrate our listing. Here’s what you need to know:
- The artists are 10 members of The Most Famous Artist (TMFA) collective — including the group’s renowned founder Matty Mo, as well as Vasco Velazquez, Bernie McCabe, Anna Slaughter, Sandy Wu, Morgan Flatt, Mars Eve, Natasha Extract, Narineh Seferian, and Gino Burman-Loffredo.
- Each artist remixed the Polygon logo in their own unique styles, so there will be 10 different NFTs in the collection, one per artist.
- The collection is now available to buy in ETH on OpenSea, the largest NFT marketplace around.
- All proceeds go directly to the artists and their efforts to create more NFT art.
