Even though the Polygon plugin has been here a while, it’s time we finally covered what you can do with it in Directual! Drum roll, introducing Polygon, a fantastic plugin you can use with your crypto products!
So long story short, a polygon is a plane figure with a finite number of segments…wait, scratch it.
Polygon is an extremely popular L2 network (sidechain) that is closely intertwined with the Ethereum blockchain. Polygon has its own tradable cryptocurrency called MATIC, used to pay network fees, cover governance (yup, it’s a DAO with voting rights!), and staking.
The purpose of Polygon is to reduce transaction times and lower the transaction fees for users. An extra support line to reduce the load on the main blockchain, if put plainly. It can also interact with a boatload of crypto apps compatible with Ethereum.
It’s quite a complex solution that has a great number of uses, a fantastic community, and a big future. No wonder we wanted you to be able to use it with Directual! Speaking of which…
Just to start off, Directual is ideal for all things Web3. You can go as far as building a complete crypto product from the ground up, complete with UI, an admin panel, authentication, transactions, live exchange rates, wallet (and its balance), contract fulfillment (soon-ish!), and much more—all with our pre-made logic cubes.
Pretty much the entire functionality of the solution is at your fingertips. To provide an example, here’s a nice listening and adding balance for users flow you can easily create yourself on our platform:
