Polygon aims to solve the limitations of Ethereum without compromising on security.

The native token for Polygon is Matic and its valuation was $26 million when it was first issued in 2019. Today the valuation stands at $14 billion and India gets its first crypto billionaires. The investment of Mark Cuban in Polygon is unknown at this point. Mark Cuban, who is quite popular with Shark Tank viewers, has been supporting cryptocurrency.
