We come to you with the exciting news that Starter has gone Cross-Chain, with our launch on Polygon Blockchain (formerly Matic Network).
Launched as a response to some of Ethereum’s biggest drawbacks, Polygon’s rise has been meteoric. The multichain system combines the best of Ethereum’s network effects with aspects of sovereign blockchains in an attractive feature set. Made by developers, for developers.
Traders have obviously seen huge benefits as its popularity has continued to sky-rocket.
But let’s look at some of the finer points behind this exciting news…
A new direction for Starter?
A new direction, but a natural one.
Starter never stands still. We restlessly innovate and evolve. For a long time it has been our ambition to bring vetted and community-oriented IDO launches to multiple blockchains. Polygon is just the beginning, eventually, Starter will live on seven blockchains and offer IDOs across all of them.
It’s the balance between this hunger for growth and our core community values that makes Starter so special. Everything we do is to bolster the network that makes the platform valuable to our loyal $START-ers. With this in mind — staying faithful to our community values and innovating at the front of the industry — our move to cross-chain is inevitable as we continue to bring the best projects to our community and provide them with the tools to make the most of these opportunities, while constantly raising our game as a presence in the crypto sphere.
While Ethereum has been thought of as the primary blockchain development platform, it unfortunately still has major limitations. Polygon is a protocol and framework for building and connecting Ethereum-compatible blockchain networks, effectively transforming Ethereum into a multi-chain system (this is why it’s known as Ethereum’s Internet of Blockchains).
Polygon is an answer to many of the main issues with single-chain systems and has tackled them with features that align closely with the Starter vision and where we are headed.
Some of these features include:
- One-click deployment of preset blockchain networks.
- A growing set of modules for developing custom networks.
- Interoperability protocol for exchanging arbitrary messages with Ethereum and other blockchain networks.
- Modular and optional “security as a service”.
- Adaptor modules for enabling interoperability for existing blockchain networks.
Polygon’s rise in popularity in some ways mirrors Starter’s in that it has offered traders an open and powerful tool that is network and community-driven. These are driving forces that make Polygon the ideal vehicle for our transition to multi-chain.
A Positive Role to Play
Having said this, Polygon’s rise in popularity has not come without its issues. As with other blockchains, the growing problem of scammers and rug pulls has plagued Polygon, and we believe that Starter can be the positive force that helps weed them out in favour of the genuinely promising projects.
As we do week-in, week-out with our Binance Smart Chain IDOs, we will encourage our community to DYOR (do your own research) on each Polygon project, and our intelligent, well-managed community and voting system will continue to promote clarity and integrity.
This move opens up our community to the most popular projects and allows us to play a positive role and progressive role in the crypto space.
The next step will be announcing our very first Polygon IDO, stay tuned for that one — all the details you need are at the bottom of the page.
