Polygon enlists Xternity to migrate multiplayer Web3 game from Solana

Ethereum layer-2 scaling solution Polygon, joined hands with Xternity, a Web3 gaming development platform, to migrate and onboard a multiplayer Web3 game – Synergy Land – to the Polygon network from Solana.

As blockchain platforms, Solana focuses primarily on scalability and cost-cutting, while Polygon allows for 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.

Speaking about Xternity’s goal to accelerate Web3 game development, co-founder and CEO Sagi Maman, stated that both players and developers should have the option to choose their own blockchain ecosystems.

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 its 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.

On Jan. 17, the Polygon proof-of-stake chain was scheduled for a hard fork. Speaking to Cointelegraph, a Polygon spokesperson shared minute details about the upgrade:

“The hard fork is coded for the Block >= 38,189,056. No centralized, single actor is going to initiate it. Validators of the network have to update their nodes prior to the indicated block and they are already doing so.”

The upgrade, approved by 87% of the 15 voters of the Polygon Governance Team, aims to reduce gas fee spikes and fix the chain reorganization problem.
