DIGITALAX has teamed up with Polygon to launch the first real hybrid digital and physical fashion line, with memetic proof of uniqueness.

The fashion line is a collection of individual physical garments, each of which will be imprinted with a one-of-a-kind “memetic patch” NFT.

The memetic patches will be minted on Polygon as a unique ERC1155 NFT, using the DIGITALAX open-source digital pattern, material, and texture libraries.

It’s going live soon at DRIP.DIGITALAX.XYZ.

Anyone purchasing a physical item from the collection will receive an inventory claim ticket, allowing them to claim their unique memetic NFT in an Arkane or Metamask wallet, generated through the DIGITALAX platform once they sign up to the marketplace. Physical items are purchasable in fiat, so there is…


We’re pleased to announce the launch of a 150M$ DeFi Fund to make DeFi more accessible and cost-effective to bring the next million users to DeFi.

Top DeFi protocols like Aave and Curve launched on Polygon have seen a departure from the usual whale-dominated farming. Instead, what we’re seeing is that the capital size is smaller, but the number of active users is exponentially growing. For instance, Aave has seen more than 7500+ users lock $1 Billion in liquidity, within weeks from launch! …


With Proof of Work (PoW) blockchains becoming a hot topic for discussion as far as carbon footprint and eco-friendliness go, where does Polygon — with its Proof of Stake (PoS) consensus mechanism — rank in terms of its ecological footprint?

As per estimates, the biggest PoW blockchains can consume a yearly quota of anywhere between 35140 TWh of electricity, with a continuous draw of anywhere between 3–15 GW of electricity. Just the two biggest PoW blockchains would be ranked 27th in yearly energy consumption if it were a country — above the likes of Sweden, Vietnam and Argentina.

It is…
