Polygon (MATIC) is an Ethereum token that powers the Polygon Network. Polygon provides faster and cheaper transactions on Ethereum using Layer 2 sidechains, which are blockchains that run alongside the Ethereum main chain. To create new MATIC and secure the network, Polygon uses a proof-of-stake consensus mechanism — which means that one way you earn money on MATIC you hold is via staking. You can buy and sell MATIC for any major cryptocurrency, like BTC, ETH, and XRP or traditional currency such as Canadian Dollar, US Dollar, and Euro. Trading cryptocurrencies is like foreign exchange of traditional currencies – you trade MATIC for BTC the same way you trade CAD for USD. You can also trade MATIC to CAD based on the MATIC price.

In February 2021, Ethereum layer 2 scaling solution Matic Network rebranded as Polygon – an interoperable blockchain scaling framework for building Ethereum-compatible blockchains. It seeks to address some of Ethereum’s major limitations, including its poor user experience (like delayed transactions), high gas fee, and lack of community governance – all using a novel sidechain solution. The MATIC token is used in the Polygon ecosystem, including participating in network governance by voting on Polygon Improvement Proposals (PIPs), contributing to security through staking, as well as paying gas fees.

You may want to consider buying MATIC if you would like to:

Diversify your portfolio by introducing a variety of cryptocurrency assets

Use it for staking and paying for transaction fees

Explore the Polygon network and contribute to its development

Exchange it for cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin to buy and sell goods online
