Blockchain explorers are one of the most widely used tools in crypto, drawing data from a blockchain and presenting the data to a user in a searchable and accessible format.

Etherscan.io is by far the most popular blockchain explorer for Ethereum with highly loved features like the Gas Tracker, Developer APIs, ERC-20 and ERC-721 token trackers and much more.

Activity on the Polygon Blockchain has seen an exponential increase to 200M+ txns, thanks to the 400+ Dapps building on Polygon and 1.3M+ unique wallets.


June 8, 2021 — Polygon, the full-stack scaling solution for Ethereum, formerly known as Matic Network, has announced a 200,000$ Liquidity Program with Hop Protocol to connect Polygon to the Multi-Chain world.

Hop’s vision is to connect the fragmented Layer-2 landscape and enable seamless asset transfers and composability between DeFi applications on various networks. The Hop protocol provides a scalable token bridge for Ethereum’s Scaling ecosystem using a two-pronged approach:

  1. Create a special intermediary asset called an hToken (e.g., hETH, hDAI, etc.) that can be quickly and economically moved from one network to the next.
  2. Use Automated Market Makers (AMMs)…


Polygon’s vibrant ecosystem of projects and Dapps has led to wide adoption with more than 176M transactions and 1.2M unique users thanks to 400+ brilliant decentralized applications.

Introducing Project Spotlight: an initiative to highlight and get to know the Dapps on Polygon a little better!

BadgerDAO is excited to launch on Polygon to accelerate the adoption and utility of Bitcoin on its network. With BadgerDAO’s mission to bring BTC to DeFi, the BadgerDAO team wanted to make it as easy as possible for users to put their Bitcoin to work where there is utility.

Polygon has seen explosive growth in the last few months with over $10B in the total value of assets locked and $1.3B worth of BTC already being utilized in protocols like Aave and Sushiswap. This clearly shows demand for BTC and together with Polygon, we can help grow that footprint substantially.

The mural will stay up for one month and will serve as a backdrop to the…
