Today we are excited to announce that Gravity Finance will be launching on Polygon.

Polygon (previously Matic Network), is an Ethereum sidechain scaling solution, commonly referred to as a “Layer2” and was developed to solve many of the existing issues facing Ethereum.

In Polygon’s own words;

“Polygon is an Internet of Blockchains” and “a protocol and framework for building and connecting Ethereum-compatible blockchain networks”

Why Polygon?

Polygon will allow our platform to thrive, as it’s Scalable, Secure and Interoperable, allowing the passing of arbitrary messages between other Ethereum-compatible networks. Tokens can also be transferred to and from compatible networks.

Our governance token (GFI) will launch on the Polygon network and follows the ERC20 standard.

A Flourishing Sidechain.

Gravity will be leveraging these above-mentioned protocols in several of our platform features. More details will be released with each feature announcement as they become available.

Familiarity.

MetaMask (and other compatible wallets) can simply be set to the Polygon mainnet instead of the Ethereum mainnet. The user’s Ethereum address remains the same on the Polygon sidechain so all that’s required is to simply switch the network in the wallet. You may also need to transfer tokens to the sidechain which is also a very easy process.

Gravity will also integrate with WalletConnect allowing users to connect to any compatible wallet.

We will be releasing a detailed guide soon for anyone who may be unfamiliar with the process of adding/changing MetaMask network connection. This process will be required by anyone wanting to participate in the airdrops and our IDO. Guides on other compatible wallets will also be provided where possible.

More to Come.

Our goal is to have GFI’s earning potential reach across multiple chains and we look forward to achieving this.
