Chainstack launches support for Ethereum scaling solution Polygon
What is Polygon?
Polygon is a protocol and a framework for building and connecting Ethereum-compatible blockchain networks. Aggregating scalable solutions on Ethereum supporting a multi-chain Ethereum ecosystem, Polygon solves pain points associated with other blockchains without compromising on security, low transaction fees, and transaction speed.
In addition to technology innovation, Polygon has made building on Ethereum more accessible thanks to campaigns like the $100M #DeFiforAll fund to attract the next million DeFi participants.
Introducing Polygon support on Chainstack
We officially welcome Polygon to our platform and launch complete support for Polygon PoS mainnet and Mumbai testnet. This new offering will help developers build applications on reliable infrastructure engineered for scale in the easiest way possible on all the major public cloud providers (Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform) and geographies.
Developers will now be able to easily get access to Polygon APIs and deploy their own nodes in minutes, thereby reducing the costs associated with blockchain infrastructure and their time to market.
Having gained wide adoption within the Web3 community, the Polygon ecosystem is growing fast. Chainstack is a highly accessible and secure platform that helps businesses incorporate layer two solutions, boosting Ethereum’s transaction capacity. Polygon’s community has now a trusted ally in Chainstack to help power up experimentation, adoption, and scalability.Eugene Aseev, Founder and CTO of Chainstack
Why Polygon on Chainstack is the right choice?
Chainstack makes running a blockchain node radically simple so that developers can focus on building their applications instead of worrying about node availability, costly maintenance, and upgrades. Chainstack as a reliable infrastructure provider is a major step forward for the Polygon ecosystem as it will allow blockchain projects to:
- Get instant access to reliable Polygon mainnet and Mumbai testnet infrastructure.
- Add advanced capabilities to any Polygon infrastructure with applications, developer tools, and services available on Chainstack Marketplace like Hardhat, The Graph, and IPFS.
- Start fast with shared Polygon nodes with multiple hosting locations, near-instant deployment, and secure HTTP and WebSocket endpoints.
- Access Polygon mainnet archive data starting at $49 per month.
- For request-intensive workload, deploy and sync dedicated Polygon nodes in minutes thanks to Chainstack-patented technology Bolt.
The rapid adoption of Polygon has resulted in the need for strong infrastructure that can support the high-throughput on-chain transactions from 300+ DApps on Polygon. We are pleased to collaborate with Chainstack to make the blockchain experience seamless for users and developers.Sandeep Nailwal, Co-Founder and COO, Polygon
