What Is Polygon?

Polygon (formerly known as Matic Network) is a structured, easy-to-use platform for Layer 2 and infrastructure development.

Polygon plans to be the first Layer 2 solution aggregator on Ethereum, building a modular, universal and flexible scaling framework for Ethereum. A growing number of DeFi projects such as UMA, Aavegotchi, EasyFi and others already support integration with the Polygon network.

OKX (formerly OKEx), a centralized exchange, has also supported the Polygon ecosystem. Users can now transfer a variety of tokens from OKX to imToken through the Polygon network, saving more on transfer fees while enjoying faster speed.
