Alpaca City Partners with Polygon (Matic Network) to Bring NFT Experience to the Next Level
Today we are thrilled to announce that Alpaca City and Polygon (Matic Network) have formed a strategic partnership to bring Alpaca NFTs to the Polygon ecosystem and take the user experience of Alpaca City to the next level with Polygon’s layer-2 solution.
Ever since the gas fees on Ethereum pumped to an unprecedented level, we’ve received a lot of problem shoots and feedback from our community regarding the user experience of Alpaca City on the current Ethereum network. These eventually convince us that migration to Polygon would be an important and suitable step forward for Alpaca City, since the L2 scaling solution offered by Polygon is fully compatible with OpenSeas and every feature and smart contract we currently have in the Ethereum environment.
Better user experience and lower gas fee allow us to breed more new cute alpacas. It also means more ALPA tokens would be burned to strengthen the inflation of the ALPA token.
Currently both teams are working very closely on the integration, and we should be live on Polygon within 4–8 weeks. Stay tuned!
About Polygon (Formerly known as Matic Network)
Polygon is an Ethereum token that powers the Polygon Network, a multichain scaling solution for Ethereum. Polygon aims to provide faster and cheaper transactions on Ethereum using Layer 2 sidechains, which are blockchains that run alongside the Ethereum main chain. Users can deposit Ethereum tokens to a Polygon bridge smart contract, interact with them within Polygon sidechain, and then later withdraw them back to the Ethereum main chain, if need be. The MATIC token is used to pay transaction fees and participate in proof-of-stake consensus.
