Mogul uses Polygon’s scaling infrastructure for an Ethereum compatible platform and becomes a network validator

Decentralized film financing platform (DeFiFi) Mogul Productions has partnered with Polygon (formerly Matic Network) to provide Mogul users with an enhanced user experience for near-instant transactional purposes.

Mogul tends to be an innovative and progressive filmmaker and fundraiser using blockchain technology to vote, fund, reward, and distribution. With its proprietary platform, Mogul will engage audiences and financiers during the transition from script to screen to increase financing transparency.

As filmmakers, funders and fans gather on Mogul’s platform for the first time, Mogul uses the audience’s power to make more great movies and allows fans to give their voice to the creative process.

Mogul has partnered with Polygon to replace the old-fashioned overly complex interfaces that early long-lived blockchain users had to use to provide a better user experience for everyone. Mogul can now offer an easy-to-use interface that preserves all the security and privacy features provided by blockchain technology, increasing transaction processing and block validation speed.

By partnering with Polygon, users of the Mogul platform can enjoy instant, secure and free transactions. Mogul covers all gas rates on the platform to provide the best Web3 user experience possible.

Gagan Grewal, CEO of Mogul Productions, said by working with Polygon, Mogul’s DeFiFi platform can provide a seamless blockchain-based user experience for the film industry while taking advantage of the network and security impacts associated with using the Ethereum mainnet. It opens the Mogul technology team’s door to bring more benefits to users, from scripting to distribution using funding and blockchain technologies.

Sandeep Nailwal, Co-Founder and COO of Polygon, said of the partnership with Mogul Productions has created a comprehensive platform for DeFi’s future in the film industry, and its community will now benefit from high-speed transactions and low fees. What sets Mogul apart from the rest is its commitment to seamlessly integrating the next wave of blockchain users from the movie industry.

As part of the partnership, Mogul will help run the polygon network as a validator by validating the blockchain’s transactions by running Heimdall’s validator and Bor block producer nodes.

This partnership with Polygon, an industry-leading scaling solution, supports Mogul’s effort to bring DeFi to the film industry and the previously announced partnership with Chainlink.
