Polygon August Adrenaline Series — LABS Group

Polygon has been one of the fastest-growing Dapp platforms for Ethereum scaling, rapidly becoming the de-facto standard for DeFi, NFTs, and Blockchain Gaming with 500+ Dapps, ~7M daily txns, and 1.8M+ unique wallets.

The rise of gaming on Polygon has been especially noticeable, with more than 100,000 blockchain gamers on Polygon and top Web 3 games, and Aavegotchi is one of them, building high-quality gaming experiences thanks to Polygon’s high speed and fast confirmation times.

This tight-knit and exponentially growing gamer community is what led to the creation of Polygon Studios: a brand new arm at Polygon that is focused on growing the global Blockchain Gaming and NFT Industry, and bridging the gap between Web 2 and Web 3 gaming.

Introducing Polygon August Adrenaline: an initiative to highlight and get to know the Gaming & NFT projects on Polygon a little better!

Where are you in the hype cycle for gaming and NFT’s?

NFT technology is not just a fad, you can see the whole industry is rising towards the upstream of ‘plateau of productivity’. After the peak of inflated expectations, as a blockchain-based real estate investment platform, we are actively developing various possibilities of NFT utility and innovative potentialities while pegging real estate assets with NFT.

Many possibilities that are yet to be imagined. NFT technology could change the whole property market by attaching real estate ownership or staying right to define the owner’s right legally without any traditional middle man.

Who are some thought leaders you follow in the space?

Vitalik Buterin, Founder of ETH

Why did you choose to build on Polygon?

Polygon can provide the security and stability of the Ethereum network without the high gas fees, which makes it more cost efficient and cost effective. The speed of transactions on the Polygon network is much higher than Ethereum, allowing to run ethereum transactions in a faster, more scalable way. This is achieved by making the transactions less data intensive. All these features are essential to make LABS Group a more decentralized and community-driven project.
