Scalable and instant blockchain transactions

Matic Network brings massive scale to Ethereum using an adapted version of Plasma with PoS based side chains.

Why Matic?

Decentralized Apps are making huge progress but the current blockchain ecosystem is not prepared to scale as per the demand.

Slow block confirmations and high gas fees need to be solved before we target mass adoption by mainstream users. And most importantly, it needs awesome user experience.

We aim to change that by simplifying the interaction between users and the decentralized world. We want to make interacting with the decentralized ecosystem so easy that anyone can do so without worrying about the complexity of the system.

Matic Architecture

Matic Network solves the above problems by building a decentralized platform using an adapted version of Plasma framework that provides a solution for faster and extremely low cost transactions with finality on a main chain.

The system ensures liveliness using PoS checkpoints which are pushed to the Ethereum mainchain. This enables Matic to theoretically achieve 2 16 transactions per block on a single plasma chain, and possibly millions of transactions on multiple chains in the future.

Matic Features

Scalability

Scalability is implemented by using a decentralized Plasma operator mechanism with finality achieved on a main chain.

High Transaction Throughput

Can scale to millions of transactions on a sidechain tree architecture. 65k transactions/second on a single Matic chain.

User Experience

Smooth UX abstraction from mainchain to Matic chain. Native mobile apps and SDK with WalletConnect support.

Security

The Matic chain(s) operators are themselves Stakers and Delegates in a Proof-of-Stake system in the Matic Network.

Asset Interoperability

Assets in different sidechains across various blockchains will be made inter-operable by Matic Network in the near future.

Toolkit for developers

Matic helps you to scale your DApps massively. You can even use your own tokens as settlement fees to run the Network. It provides SDKs and APIs for faster and easy development.

Integrate Matic on your DApps with a few simple steps, and give your users a smooth, fast and secure user experience. Settle payment on-chain whenever needed.
