Polygon on Akash
Polygon is both a protocol and a framework for building and connecting Ethereum-compatible blockchain networks. Aggregating scalable solutions on Ethereum and supporting a multi-chain Ethereum ecosystem.
Akash is the world’s first open source decentralized cloud built on a censorship-resistant, permissionless, and self-sovereign network.
In this guide we will cover how to use these two technologies together when building our decentralized apps.
