ConsenSys Tools Infura, Truffle Now Support Ethereum Scaling Project Polygon

The two products should make life easier for developers on Polygon.

Developing decentralized apps (dapps) on the Ethereum scaling project Polygon is set to be a simpler affair with the network now supported by two tools from ConsenSys. 

  • Being added to ConsenSys' Infura and Truffle products, alongside Ethereum and IFPS, allows developers to program and run dapps on Polygon's network as easily as they would on a cloud platform, according to an announcement Wednesday.
  • Infura enables developers to connect to Ethereum via an API without having to run a full node, and it underpins the majority of dapps on the network.
  • Polygon, formerly known as Matic, is now looking to offer this same accessibility to the decentralized finance (DeFi)-focused protocols it supports.
  • Truffle, meanwhile, brings tools that help developers build and deploy their dapps, like boilerplate projects.
  • Polygon recently announced the launch of a $100 million “#DeFiforAll” fund to make DeFi more accessible to a larger number of users in the face of mounting Ethereum gas fees.
  • With those fees currently at recent highs – and seen as an urgent problem for the Ethereum ecosystem – Polygon says its average cost per transaction of $0.000371 will cut costs for users making swaps.
  • At time of writing, the project's MATIC token is trading at $1.19, having hit an all-time high of $1.22 earlier on Wednesday, according to CoinGecko.
