Polygon, the operator of Ethereum, has joined Solana in its quest to bring Web3 to smartphones through its new partnership with the technology company Nothing.
Nothing formed the Polygon network to issue non-fungible tokens (NFTs) on the new Nothing (1) Android-based phones. The NFT project, called “Nothing Community Dots”, involves sending air tokens to investors in the community of Nothing, which unlocks benefits such as access to new products and programs.
One of the first rewards was an invitation to the launch of Phone Nothing (1) in London on July 12. Polygon founder Sandeep Nailwal described it as “encouraging to see a developer like Nothing get Web3 early, allowing immediate access to work with Polygon”.
The announcement comes less than two weeks after Solana announced that it is developing a blockchain-powered smartphone called “Saga/”, which will feature a Web3 store dapp (app Pay), “Solana Pay” to facilitate online payments. chain and secure the private key. The work of Polygon and Solana shows the renaissance of efforts to create a mobile-blockchain. In 2018, Hoş Labs tried to do the same thing, but their plan did not materialize, leading to a lawsuit and a lawsuit about the company’s unpaid debts. If Polygon and Solana’s efforts prove to be successful, they can bring Web3 to a wider audience through the convenience of everyday smartphones.
