Polygon consists of two major components. Polygon Framework and Polygon Protocol. The polygon framework allows developers to spin up their own blockchain network that offers the same developer experience and security as Ethereum while also providing the scalability and flexibility of stand-alone blockchains. The Polygon Protocol provides the method of connecting two different Polygon Chains and the Ethereum Main Chain.
Polygon lowers entry barriers by reducing the transaction costs to an absolute minimum by taking a multi-prong approach to scaling. Protocols like Curve, Aave, Balancer, and Sushiswap have already launched on Polygon. The low transaction costs and fast transaction speeds have encouraged game developers to launch on Polygon. Zed.Run and Aavegotchi are two such games.
