Hello guys, Ubong Ephraim here and welcome to a fresh episode Polygon spotlight with Ubong Ephraim.
On this series I highlight happenings on Polygon, such as projects and DApps integrated on Polygon, Polygon’s integrations on protocols, partnerships and other important updates.


Polygon is a blockchain solution that provides scalable, secure and instant Ethereum transactions using Plasma side chains and a Proof-of-Stake network. Polygon has made an effort to resolve the issues of scalability and usability without making a compromise on decentralization. It is an off/side chain scaling solution for existing platforms to provide scalability and superior user experience to DApps/user functionalities. Polygon was created to solve the problem of scalability associated with most blockchains and also accelerate transaction speeds. When developers seek to deploy their solutions using blockchain technology, speed and scalability are two utmost features they look out for. Polygon solves these problems very well while adding additional features such as a smooth user experience and security. More than 70 dApps have been built on Polygon, ranging from DeFi protocols to games and prediction markets. With more validator nodes being onboarded on Polygon progressively, it is on the path to full decentralization and becoming the most sought after Layer 2 network in the blockchain ecosystem.

Today we would be highlighting the recent partnerships Polygon has had in March 2021


OIN is delighted to announce its latest partnership with Polygon, a top-notch layer 2 blockchain which provides secure, scalable and instant transactions. Matic, rebranded as Polygon, has pivoted towards addressing DeFi loopholes by becoming the most popular and talked-about platform for running Dapps. With this partnership, OIN will integrate MATIC tokens using OINDAO to issue stablecoins.

According to Richie Li, the co-founder of OIN, “The more our project (and the OINDAO) grows, the more excited we are. We’re getting all types of projects, from larger projects, to incredibly popular projects (like Polygon), as well as the smaller projects that fill out the rest of the space. We are truly well on our way to delivering DeFi to all of the blockchain space! We welcome Polygon, and can’t wait to see them live on OINDAO!”

What does this partnership entail?

Polygon is one the largest crypto platform that leverages the Plasma framework and PoS network securing the assets. Polygon is consistently making the crypto world accessible to even small investors by supporting low gas fees and quick transaction time. Its efforts have been incessant and persistent in this direction.

By integrating Polygon’s MATIC tokens to the OIN network, it’ll enable Polygon to issue their stablecoins allowing users to earn yield and staking bonus while providing the security and boosting liquidity leveraging of OIN’s asset pools.
