Polygon is a Layer 2 scaling solution. It is an open-source, modular, and flexible blockchain platform that allows developers to build and deploy their own decentralized applications (dApps) with faster and cheaper transactions.

At ETHCC Paris, Polygon and Kaleido announced a partnership to accelerate enterprise adoption of web3 through the combined power of Kaleido’s enterprise-grade blockchain platform and Polygon’s scaling technology.

In this post we’ll talk about the benefits of using Kaleido and Polygon together to build scalable, secure, and user-friendly applications.

1. We’re an official partner

Polygon wants to bring the world to Ethereum with scaling solutions that make blockchain tech more attractive to high-throughput use cases. This makes Polygon a perfect offering for the Kaleido platform, where our goal is to simplify doing business at an industrial scale in web3. Polygon and Kaleido combined gives enterprises cutting edge technology and a set of familiar, pluggable tools to stand up game-changing networks in minutes.

When you build with Polygon on Kaleido you can easily deploy your own smart contracts with our Smart Contract Management system. On top of this, we make tokenization and digital asset management easier with token support, out-of-the-box templates to mint, transfer, and manage ERC20, ERC721 or ERC 1155 tokens.

Kaleido is a world-leading blockchain platform, underpinning some of the most complex use cases across financial services, healthcare, government, media and entertainment, and supply chains. Match this with the scaling ability of Polygon’s network and you’ve got a truly enterprise-grade launchpad for your application.

2. You can launch instantly

Kaleido makes it easy to stand up a blockchain network in minutes. After you open a free account, you can build your first environment with just a few clicks. It’s as simple as selecting from multi-cloud, multi-region deployment options and choosing your chain of choice, all of which are backed by Kaleido’s enterprise-grade support.

3. Our pre-built services and APIs help you build 10x faster

The time it takes to build a blockchain application from scratch can vary widely depending on the complexity of the application, the level of expertise of the development team, and the technology stack being used. A simple blockchain application that involves basic functionality such as creating, storing, and transferring assets could take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months to build, test, and deploy. When you spend this much time on infrastructure it makes it hard to reach production, iterate on your use case, and build experiences that customers will love

Kaleido eliminates 80% of the development work, meaning you can stand up a network instantly and focus on tailoring your application with our pre-built services and APIs. From wallets to storage, messaging to events, Kaleido gives developers a full stack of options, click-button governance and security, and—always—plenty of developer-friendly APIs.

4. We offer dedicated solutions

If building from scratch from our library of services isn’t your speed and instead you want to stand up a dedicated solution quickly, we can help with that too. With the Blockchain Business Cloud, web3 is easier for the enterprise.
