Jainti Kanani, CEO and Co-Founder of Polygon, commented on the project:

“I’m very excited to be working with Fireblocks to provide an institution-friendly way of accessing the Polygon Commit Chain. The Fireblocks tool suite offers everything that major funds and institutions need to interface with blockchains, including security and regulatory compliance. Now, accessing Polygon for institutions is as easy as any other major blockchain.”

Michael Shaulov, CEO and Co-Founder of Fireblocks, added:

“The Polygon Network has quickly become the leading scalability solution for Ethereum, both via its current Commit Chain and the innovative Polygon SDK. We are excited to be supporting the growing network to offer the best-in-class tools for security, ease of use and compliance for institutional customers.”

The new integration between the two platforms will give institutions easy access to low-cost, fast on-chain transactions through the Polygon network, characterized by Fireblocks stack’s advanced security features, which we have seen on other major chains before. Institutions will be able to take advantage of a familiar interface on Polygon with its diverse and resource-rich DeFi ecosystem, which features native DeFi platforms that benefit from Polygon’s superior scalability and a number of secondary deployments of protocols like SushiSwap (SUSHI/USD) and Aave (AAVE/USD).
