Ano ang Polygon? (MATIC)

Ang Beginner’s Guide sa Polygon MATIC


Polygon, formerly known as the Matic Network, is a scaling solution that aims to provide multiple tools to improve the speed and reduce the cost and complexities of transactions on blockchain networks.
 
At the center of Polygon’s vision is Ethereum, a platform that is home to a range of decentralized applications, ones where you can join virtual worlds, play games, buy art, and participate in a range of financial services. However, this much activity on its blockchain has rendered Ethereum almost unusable, as the cost of transmission is rising and traffic is becoming clogged.

Enter Polygon. In a nutshell, Polygon bills itself as a layer-2 network, meaning it acts as an add-on layer to Ethereum that does not seek to change the original blockchain layer. Like its geometric namesake, Polygon has many sides, shapes, and uses and promises a simpler framework for building interconnected networks.

Polygon wants to help Ethereum expand in size, security, efficiency, and usefulness and seeks to spur developers to bring enticing products to market all the quicker. 

After the rebranding, Polygon retained its MATIC cryptocurrency, the digital coin underpinning the network. MATIC is used as the unit of payment and settlement between participants who interact within the network.

Sino gumawa ng Polygon?

Ang Polygon ay nilikha sa India noong 2017 at orihinal na tinawag na Matic Netwrok. Ito ang brainchild ng mga developer ng Ethereum—Jaynti Kanani, Sandeep Nailwal, at Anurag Arjun, pati na rin si Mihailo Bjelic.

Ang Matic Network ay nag-live noong 2020 at nakaakit ng ilang nangungunang pangalan sa mundo ng decentralized finance, kilala din bilang DeFi, kabilang ang Decentraland at MakerDAO. Ang Matic Network ay ni-rebrand sa Polygon noong February 2021.

Sa initial offering nito noong April 2019, ang Polygon team ay nakalikom ng katumbas na $5.6 milyon sa ETH sa pagbebenta ng 1.9 bilyon MATIC na mga token sa loob ng isang mabilis na 20-araw na panahon.

Paano Gumagana Ang Polygon?


Polygon ay isang multi-level na platform na may layuning sukatin ang Ethereum salamat sa sobra-sobrang mga sidechain, ang lahat ng ito ay naglalayong paluwagin ang pangunahing platform sa isang epektibo at matipid na paraan.  

Kung ikaw ay hindi pamilyar, ang mga sidechain ay natatanging mga blockchain na nakatuon sa main Ethereum blockchain at epektibo sa pagsuporta ng maraming Decentralized Finance (DeFi) protocols na mayroon sa Ethereum.

Tulad nito, ang Polygon ay pwedeng i-kumpara sa ibang mga network na kakumpitensya tulad ng Polkadot, Cosmos, at Avalanche.


Arkitektura

Sa core ng network ay ang Polygon software development kit (SDK), na ginagamit para gumawa ng Ethereum-compatible decentralized na mga aplikasyon bilang mga sidechain at ikonekta sila sa main blockchain.

Ang mga sidechain maaaring gawin gamit ang isa sa mga sumusunod  mga paraan ng construction scalability: 

  • Plasma Chains – Pinagsasama-sama ang mga transaksyon sa mga block, na pinagsama-sama para sa isahang pagsusumite sa Ethereum blockchain
  • zk-Rollups – Nagbibigay-daan sa maramihang paglilipat na ma-bundle sa isang transaksyon
  • Optimistic Rollups – Tulad din ng Plasma Chains, ngunit may kakayahan din i-scale ang mga smart contract ng Ethereum
     

Ang main chain ng Polygon ay isang Proof of Stake (PoS) sidechain kung saan ang mga kasali sa network ay pwedeng mag-stake ng mga MATIC token upang patunayan ang mga transaksyon at bumoto sa mga pag-upgrade ng network.


Bakit may value ang MATIC?

MATIC is the native cryptocurrency of the Polygon network and is used to help drive development across the network and can be used for staking and paying for transaction fees. 

Users can earn MATIC tokens by providing computational resources and services to the Polygon network. This can be done by validating transactions or for executing smart contracts on the network.
 
Additionally, by owning and staking MATIC, users gain the ability to vote on network upgrades, with each vote being proportional to the amount of MATIC cryptocurrency they stake. 

Like many other cryptocurrencies, the supply of MATIC tokens is limited, meaning that according to the software’s rules, there will only ever be 10 billion MATIC coins in circulation.


Bakit gagamitin ang MATIC?

Proponents of the Polygon Network may be drawn to its ability to provide scaling solutions to Ethereum, and developers can leverage Polygon’s technology to build more user-friendly dapps on its blockchain. 

Examples of dapps that are built on Polygon include Sushi, a decentralized exchange platform, Augur, a prediction market platform and Ocean Protocol, a platform that allows businesses and individuals to exchange and monetize data and data-based services

Investors may also seek to buy MATIC and add it to their portfolio should they believe in Layer-2 solutions for improving the Ethereum Network.
