Download a PDF Copy Introduction As EIP-1559 draws closer and some Ethereum projects are just beginning to adopt Layer-2 technology, it is clear that the dire need for cheap and ultra-fast transactions has driven some to explore alternative networks such as Polygon, formerly known as Matic.  Interestingly, only a minuscule amount of Ethereum addresses have interacted with the sidechain. Based on data by Nansen, only less than 0.1% of addresses on the Ethereum mainnet are also on Polygon. This represents a highly untapped opportunity, ripe for a Cambrian explosion of growth and yield-farming activity. In this article, join us as...

eToro is a publishing partner of CoinGecko Back in 2008 during the financial crisis, banks were focused on picking up the pieces.

We saw the birth of the iPhone as well as apps like Airbnb, Uber, WhatsApp, and so many more. With so much potential for integrating financial components into those apps, the fintech players took the mantle of bridging the gap between what banks could offer at that time and what consumers expected. And so began the fintech revolution....
