How to get MATIC?

Ethereum’s volatility and extraordinarily high gas fees have been a major industry conversation topic.

In the first few months of 2021, over $1.6 trillion dollars was settled on the Ethereum network. — a metric that also explains why using the Ethereum network is so expensive.

Not all users can pay high transaction fees; hence the Polygon network helps to bypass the high cost of gas fees and helps to connect blockchains and decentralized applications to Ethereum via sidechains.

What is Polygon (MATIC)?

Polygon is a Layer 2 scaling solution for the Ethereum blockchain that allows users to transact quicker and cheaper than on the Ethereum mainnet. Polygon has since then become popular among passive investors, traders, and decentralized finance (DeFi) platforms.

What can MATIC be used for?

MATIC is Polygon’s native token, which can be used for :

  • A store of value and a currency
  • Paying low transaction fees on the Polygon network (much lower than the underlying Ethereum mainnet)
  • Participate in Crypto staking
  • Diversification of investment strategies
  • Trade NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens)
  • Support scaling solutions for the Ethereum blockchain.

Alpha Impact will be expanding to the Polygon Network, which allows users to trade FOLO tokens for cheaper gas fees at a faster rate to mitigate the problem of exorbitant gas fees.

What are FOLO Tokens?

FOLO tokens will be launched on the Polygon blockchain, increasing the liquidity for users who hold these tokens. Launching FOLO tokens on the Polygon network will allow our expert traders to monetize their insights and trades. As Alpha Impact launches our Trader Signals Monetization Program, FOLO tokens will be used as the central currency of the platform. These tokens will be used for payment towards the traders as a way for traders to earn incentives on our platform.
