Chainstack to contribute to Polygon’s $150M #DeFiforAll Fund to help accelerate Web3 adoption

We are officially joining hands today with the Polygon network to add our contribution to Polygon’s $150M #DeFiforAll Fund that was announced earlier this year. Our combined support is targeted at making DeFi more accessible and cost-effective, to bring the next million users to DeFi. 

In our mission to make Web3 more accessible and efficient, Chainstack will provide free infrastructure to all the #DeFiforAll Fund’s grantees and grants alumni. Chainstack is determined to help developers build applications on reliable infrastructure built for scale in the easiest way possible. 

We are glad to have Chainstack with us on our journey to make #DeFiforAll and support Polygon’s incredible community. Sustainable growth is what we want to promote with this grant program, and this must include reliable and cost-effective node infrastructure.

Arjun Kalsy, VP of Growth at Polygon 

This initiative with Polygon will help provide entrepreneurial developers who are just starting up on their journey to build a new Polygon project with access to robust and scalable infrastructure. We are excited to see the community and ecosystem thrive and will extend our support to all projects to become the next mightiest Web3 projects such as QuickSwap and The Graph. 

Chainstack is on a mission to make Web3 for everyone and ensure the next generation of the Internet is inclusive and diverse. We are thrilled to support the #DeFiforAll Fund and collaborate with the Polygon team to achieve this.

What is the #DeFiforAll Fund? 

Polygon’s #DeFiforAll Fund was set up with the objective of bringing the benefits of DeFi, farming and lending to a larger user base that was traditionally completely priced out of the revolution. Polygon have committed up to 2% MATIC total supply ($150M at the time of writing) for a long-term fund to continually grow and support DeFi over the next 2–3 years. As part of this program, Polygon have supported leading projects such as Aave and Curve with massive liquidity mining programs and hopes to support the best DeFi protocols from the DeFi fund and take their incredible products to the masses and Polygon’s incredible community.

Making Polygon network even more accessible 

Polygon is a Layer 2 scaling solution created to help bring mass adoption to the Ethereum platform. Aggregating scalable solutions on Ethereum supporting a multi-chain Ethereum ecosystem, Polygon solves the pain points associated with other blockchains without compromising on security, low transaction fees, and transaction speed. The well-structured, easy-to-use platform for Ethereum scaling and infrastructure development is managed by its core component, Polygon SDK, a modular, flexible framework that supports building and connecting Secured Chains like Plasma, Optimistic Rollups, zkRollups, Validium etc and Standalone Chains like Polygon POS, designed for flexibility and independence. 

In addition to technology innovation, Polygon have made building on Ethereum more accessible thanks to campaigns that promoted widespread adoption and attract the next million DeFi participants.
