What Is Polygon (MATIC)?

Polygon is a well-structured, easy-to-use platform for Ethereum scaling and infrastructure development. Its core component is Polygon SDK, a modular, flexible framework that supports building multiple types of applications. Using Polygon, one can create optimistic rollup chains, ZK rollup chains, stand-alone chains, or any other kind of infrastructure required by the developer.

The MATIC token plays an increasingly important role in securing the system and enabling governance. The key use cases of the token include securing the Proof of Stake (PoS) consensus and earning rewards, paying for the transaction fees in the network, and governing the decentralization of Polygon network.
