Taurus Embrace Polygon Blockchain
Taurus, a leading provider of digital asset infrastructure backed by Credit Suisse and Deutsche Bank, has partnered with Polygon to provide staking and decentralized finance (DeFi) support to its capabilities.
Taurus offers a range of services, including custody, tokenization, and trading of digital assets. Taurus recently secured $65 million in funding through a round led by Credit Suisse and Deutsche Bank in February, highlighting the growing interest from traditional financial institutions in blockchain technology and tokenization.
Tokenization, the process of representing an asset as tradable units in a digital format, is increasingly drawing the attention of mainstream financial institutions.
Taurus emphasized that most Tier 1 financial institutions are entering the tokenization space and seeking a blockchain-agnostic and token-agnostic infrastructure. Additionally, Bank of America published a report last April stating that the tokenized gold market had surpassed $1 billion the previous month.
Polygon’s Vision: The “Internet of Blockchains”
Polygon aims to evolve into an “internet of blockchains,” connecting various Ethereum-compatible networks while continuing to enhance transaction efficiency and speed.
As blockchain technology adoption accelerates, collaborations between established major institutions and Polygon continue. In addition to the recent collaboration, Polygon has also partnered with Franklin Templeton, Google Cloud, and Deutsche Telekom in recent months.
Polygon ($MATIC) is currently trading at $0.9, up 0.4% in the last 24 hours, according to CoinMarketCap.
What is Polygon?
Polygon is a “sidechain” scaling solution that runs alongside the Ethereum blockchain — allowing for speedy transactions and low fees. MATIC is the network’s native cryptocurrency, which is used for fees, staking, and more. The effectiveness of Polygon as an alternative to Ethereum has seen existing projects such as Aave and Curve adopting its chain.
