94 - The Swiss Army Knife of Scaling | Polygon's Sandeep Nailwal & Mihailo Bjelic
Polygon is the Swiss Army Knife of Scaling. With a suite of scaling products, Polygon is pushing in many directions to scale out the Ethereum ecosystem.
On the heels of the 'Abandoning Ethereum' twitter drama, Sandeep and Mihailo from Polygon come on the podcast to discuss how Ethereum is, in fact, not abandoning its users.
A ton has happened in the world of Polygon in the six months since they were last on the show, including a partnership with DraftKings and massive leaps into the Metaverse.
