Polygon Studios

The "metaverse" -- hot word, right? But what does it really mean? How does gaming fit into the overall picture? How far away are we from its completed state? And who is *actually* building it? As the facilitator of gaming and the metaverse on Polygon, the premier scalability solution for blockchain technology, Polygon Studios is leading the charge to define these terms and answer these questions. Part venture firm, part development studio, Polygon Studios is creating the next generation of digital culture. With a bustling ecosystem of over 7000 decentralized applications actively building on Polygon, Polygon Studios leverages this unmatched community to help produce the games, recreational virtual worlds, marketplaces and social experiences of tomorrow.


Attendees should leave this presentation with an understanding as to (1) Polygon's technological and cultural advantages within the blockchain space, (2) Polygon Studios' role within the Polygon ecosystem and (3) how both entities will facilitate the mainstream adoption through the concept of "culture legos."

Intended Audience

This presentation is for all knowledge bases, from the crypto-curious to those who have already been onboarded into Web3 and are looking to learn more about Polygon's technology and Studios' capabilities.
