Paul Brody, EY Global Blockchain Leader, says their “shared priorities around open system and networks and the Ethereum ecosystem would make collaboration in this area much easier.”:
“Working with Polygon provides EY teams with a powerful set of tools to scale transactions for clients and offers a faster roadmap to integration on the public Ethereum mainnet.”

Ethereum blockchain has long been undermined by congestions and the high cost of gas fees associated with transactions on its network. Last month, the upgrade of “EIP-1559”, indicating “London Hard Fork”, has contributed to a certain degree to fix this issue, but still need time to examine the results.
The company believes that “industry chains” would offer enterprises a closed system while maintaining a close alignment with the public Ethereum mainnet, making transitions to public networks faster and lower risk.
