Polygon PoS

The Polygon PoS network is a hybrid Plasma Proof of Stake side-chain to Ethereum. It's fully compatible with the Ethereum virtual machine (EVM) which allows developers to leverage Infura, MetaMask, and other tools they use for Ethereum when developing and deploying smart contracts to the Polygon network.

The Polygon Bor node API is based on go-ethereum's JSON-RPC implementation, you can also use WebSockets to call JSON-RPCs and create subscriptions.
