Polygon blockchain developers will now be able to use Google Cloud’s Blockchain Node Engine.

Fast facts

  • Google Cloud will also provide perks to firms sponsored by Polygon Ventures, such as server hosting credits and access to its recently announced Web3 startup program.

  • Global businesses such as Starbucks and Mercedes-Benz use Polygon’s Ethereum scaling solution. 
  • In the 24 hours to 4:00 a.m. in Hong Kong, Polygon’s cryptocurrency, MATIC,  increased 6.2% to US$1.02.
