Polygon is a “Layer 2” scaling solution (or “sidechain”) that’s emerged to provide faster transactions and lower costs for users. It acts as a speedy parallel blockchain running alongside the main Ethereum blockchain. To use it, you can “bridge” some of your crypto over to Polygon from Ethereum, and then interact with a wide range of popular crypto apps that were once exclusive to the main Ethereum blockchain. The Polygon network offers very low gas fees, high security, and sustainability.
With these incredibly low gas fees compared to Ethereum (which can erupt egregious gas fees sometimes), we are able to scale our platform with the user's best interests in mind, by subsidizing gas fees to enable seamless and secure transactions for the NFTs on our marketplace.
