BitGo is Launching Full Support for Polygon

BitGo is pleased to announce two new services for MATIC holders: wallets and custody for native MATIC and staking for ERC-20 MATIC.

Previously, customers could hold the ERC-20 version, but staking was not available. Now, their clients have access to the full suite of services.

What is Polygon?

  • Stripe Connect — a payment platform for individuals, freelancers, and small businesses in 120 countries — is built using USDC on Polygon.
  • Robinhood selected Polygon as their exclusive network for the rollout of their self-custody crypto wallet beta.
  • Nike has launched Swoosh.Nike — a platform for Nike’s virtual creations — which is built on Polygon and powered by BitGo
