Polygon MATIC Revolutionizes Developer Collaboration with SPN
Polygon ($MATIC) has unveiled its Solution Provider Network (SPN) to revolutionize the way developers find and collaborate with solution providers within the Polygon ecosystem, according to official announcement. This transformative platform is set to simplify the process of connecting developers with essential infrastructure, such as oracles, bridges, RPC providers, and wallets, fostering accelerated dApp development and deployment.
Streamlining Developer Access to Essential Infrastructure
Creating a decentralized application (dApp) on the Polygon network is an enticing prospect for developers seeking a high-performance blockchain solution. However, the challenge lies in acquiring the necessary tooling and infrastructure to engage with real users effectively.
Building these components from scratch can be a time-consuming and resource-intensive endeavor, diverting developers from their primary project focus. To address this issue, Polygon introduces the Solution Provider Network (SPN), a comprehensive platform designed to facilitate real-time connections between developers and solution providers.
Unveiling the New SPN
SPN has undergone a significant overhaul to emerge as a collaborative and user-friendly discoverability platform. Its primary purpose is to connect developers and solution providers seamlessly, all within a unified environment.
Understanding SPN’s Functionality
SPN serves as a vital resource for developers looking to identify, assess, and engage with the most suitable solution providers for their projects across various Polygon chains, including Proof of Stake (PoS) and zkEVM (zkRollups). Before the introduction of SPN, friction existed in the process of connecting solution providers with developers and establishing credibility. Simultaneously, developers lacked a clear means of identifying middleware and tools essential for their projects.
SPN addresses these challenges head-on by providing each Polygon solution provider with a dedicated profile, enabling developers to connect with them directly. This streamlined process involves a simple onboarding procedure and a comprehensive listing, ensuring that any solution provider can be easily discovered by developers operating within the Polygon ecosystem.
Enhancing Visibility and Credibility
Solution providers can bolster their visibility and credibility within the Polygon ecosystem by actively participating in various activities and completing tasks. These actions enable solution providers to earn badges, distinguishing themselves and signaling their commitment to supporting the Polygon network.
SPN is Live and Ready
Polygon’s Solution Provider Network is operational, providing immediate access to a diverse array of 100+ solution providers actively building on the Polygon blockchain. With an updated landing page and additional features, this platform is set to transform the landscape for developers. If you are a solution provider, the onboarding process is available now, offering the opportunity to showcase your offerings within the thriving Polygon ecosystem.
Polygon’s Ecosystem Expansion
Polygon is actively expanding and enhancing its ecosystem. As reported by Blockchain.News, the 10-day timelock for the highly anticipated zkEVM Mainnet Beta upgrade, codenamed Dragon Fruit, has officially begun. This upgrade, scheduled to launch the week of September 11, 2023, will introduce numerous improvements, including the integration of the latest Ethereum opcode, PUSH0.
