Polygon is expected to provide the DeFi protocols with a cheaper architecture. Recall that the prices for commissions on the Ethereum network have fallen, but according to Etherscan, the average commission for a token swap on Uniswap will still cost $ 15.

Speaking about Mark Cuban’s investment, Polygon Chief Operating Officer Sandeep Nailwal called it “mind-blowing,” adding:

“It was impressive to find out that he [Кьюбан] I was aware of all the nuances of the industry, technologies and implementation that we had been working on for several months.”

Moreover, the owner of the Dallas Mavericks basketball team noted that he is integrating Polygon into, a portfolio company that allows people to showcase their non-exchangeable Tokens (NFT) and personal galleries.

In late April, Polygon announced the creation of a new $150 million DeFi fund. The goal of the fund is to expand the reach of the young financial sector to a wider user base.
