PPolygon is a sidechain, a scaling solution for Ethereum that runs parallel to the Ethereum mainnet. Compared to the mainnet, Polygon increases transaction speed while reducing transaction costs, making it an excellent solution for Ethereum developers. Originally known as the Matic Network, Polygon was founded in late 2017 by Jaynti Kanani, Sandeep Nailwal and Anurag Arjun.

Polygon API follows the JSON-RPC standard. JSON-RPC is a stateless, lightweight, remote procedure call (RPC) protocol encoded in JSON.

To use Polygon's blockchain, first create an App.

For more information on Polygon, please see official documentation.
