Polygon partners with Xternity to migrate multiplayer Web3 game Synergy from Solana to Polygon
Fresh off its partnership with Ankr to enhance the web3 building experience for supernet developers, Ethereum layer-2 scaling solution Polygon announced today it has joined forces with Web3 gaming development platform Xternity to migrate and onboard a multiplayer Web3 game — Synergy Land — to the Polygon network from Solana. The move is one of the many moves that Polygon and Xternity are planning down the road.
Following this move, ALL of Synergy land’s resources must now be transferred to the EVM Chain. Speaking about Xternity’s goal to accelerate Web3 game development, co-founder and CEO Sagi Maman, said that both players and developers should have the option to choose their own blockchain ecosystems.
As two major blockchain platforms, Solana focuses primarily on scalability and cost-cutting, while Polygon enables seamless interaction with the Ethereum ecosystem. To help transfer Synergy Land’s resources onto the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) chain, Xternity proposed a process — via its network migration tool — that can be used to migrate games or projects across chains.
The highly-anticipated migration is good news for users. The migration process involves linking their Solana-compatible wallets, such as Phantom and MetaMask, burning their assets on Solana, and recreating them on Polygon.
With the migration to Polygon, Synergy Land aims to onboard Web2 users into Web3 without compromising the community hosted over the older blockchain. Web3 projects that opt for EVM migration often seek a more extensive user base, greater functionality, and credibility of the Ethereum blockchain.
Founded in 2017 by CEO Sandeep Nailwal, Anurag Arjun, Jaynti Kanani, and Mihailo Bjelic, Polygon is the leading platform for Ethereum scaling and infrastructure development. Its growing suite of products offers developers easy access to all major scaling and infrastructure solutions: L2 solutions (ZK Rollups and Optimistic Rollups), sidechains, hybrid solutions, stand-alone and enterprise chains, data availability solutions, and more. Polygon’s scaling solutions have seen widespread adoption with 3000+ applications hosted, 1B+ total transactions processed, ~100M+ unique user addresses, and $5B+ in assets secured.
