The Polygon network was meant to improve the lack of efficiency and scalability in Ethereum. Polygon creatora went on to start MATIC, basing their operations in Mumbai.When the platform had been developed, it could provide scalable solutions to Ethereum’s problems and utilize sidechains as a scalability asset. The network also bypassed the Proof of Work (PoW) problem by establishing itself as one of the only PoS blockchains at the time.

Fast-forward into 2021, Polygon underwent a rebranding exercise and completely changed its mission statement in February 2021. It became the network that served as an interconnection snice and the bridge between blockchains and networks while leveraging Ethereum’s security protocols.
