With network congestion and high gas fees on ETH MainNet lately, L2 solutions are on the rise. L2's are excellent to keep transaction costs low, throughput high, while maintaining the smart-contract functionality of the blockchain pioneered by Ethereum.
Polygon has ambitious goals, way beyond just a L2 chain: to be a protocol and a framework for building and connecting Ethereum-compatible blockchain networks. It is EVM-compatible, secured by Proof-of-Stake, and scalable. To learn more, visit Polygon's documentation: https://docs.polygon.technology/docs/develop/getting-started
