Polygon (MATIC) has announced the successful completion of a $450 million private sale funding round. Sequoia Capital India co-led the fundraising effort.
Polygon’s strategic private sale event attracted many other venture capital firms, including SoftBank, Galaxy, Tiger, and Republic Capital. In addition, numerous angel investors, including Alan Howar and Kevin O’Leary, lent their support to the private sale event.
Polygon intends to utilize the money to help spread Web3 technology to a broader audience. Polygon, on the other hand, has a long-term goal of using the capital to make the Ethereum network the most viable blockchain in the market compared to other existing blockchains.
Polygon plans to invest the money in cutting-edge zero-knowledge (ZK) technologies in order to attract billions of users to Web3. But, above all, the Polygon team sees the private sale fundraiser as a sign that Web3’s entire presence will become a reality.
Polygon’s team is working on a streamlined solution for Web2 developers, comparable to what Amazon (AMZN) Web Services offers. Novogratz, the CEO of Galaxy Digital, also expressed his enthusiasm for Polygon’s Web3 initiative.
