On April 1, Decentraland announced in a blog post that users will be able to move MANA tokens to Polygon and back to its chain, thereby enabling a token bridge.

The announcement was followed by the integration of two decentralized finance powerhouses via the Polygon sidechain. As per Coingecko, MANA is the 80th ranked token by market cap and has risen 3750% over the year to $1.01.

The project aims to enable all the Decentraland dApps including the Builder and Marketplace contracts by processing transactions on Polygon. The step is one of the significant migrations. Finally, the integration will allow the users to purchase MANA tokens directly with credit and debit cards through Polygon integration with Transak.

There will not be any transaction fees which means the transactions will be free. Decentraland will leverage Biconomy.io meta-transactions. This will enable users to “claim, buy, sell, and trade wearables for their avatars entirely on Polygon, with no transaction fees.” Even Polygon charges a transaction fee priced at fractions of a cent.

The announcement further comes as a solution to mitigate the problem of paying higher gas fees by the users as networks become congested due to higher transactions. The announcement says:


The solution is a second blockchain built to handle the many “microtransactions” generated by normal, everyday dApp use. Polygon has built just such a scalability solution using a secondary blockchain secured by a network of Proof-of-Stake validators

Recently, Aave and Zapper both announced Polygon implementations, allowing the projects to reach the top-100 market cap twice in a week.
