MATIC NETWORK — THE BLOCKCHAIN LAYER OF PLAYCENT
Playcent is built on ethereum and runs on Matic blockchain.We initially chose Ethereum back in 2019 due to the number of developers building on the platform, and the ability to build an MVP quickly. As time passed it became clear that building a blockchain UGC Platform solely on Ethereum would not be feasible from a scalability standpoint.
We have chose Matic Network as our scaling solution due to the following reasons:
1) Low fees
Provides fast, secure transactions at low-cost on Matic sidechains with finality achieved on mainchain.
2) High performance
Accomplish up to 10,000 TPS on a single sidechain. Unlike the Ethereum network where transactions get congested when there’s a surge
3) Open & Decentralized
Matic sidechains are public in nature and permissionless
4) Easy deployment
Since Matic is the ethereum side chain, existing ethereum contracts can be easily deployed on it. This removes the barrier that come up when building on new chains.
5) Developer support & community
Matic offers wide range of developer tooling, unparalleled technical support for developers and also has one of the most active communities in the blockchain ecosystem.
