Huge Step Forward in Blockchain Usage
It is the first time a large publicly listed corporation has been actively involved in blockchain governance, as noted in an official blog post, with DraftKings joining the Polygon ecosystem as a validator and node operator.
Polygon validators are responsible for verifying the legitimacy and validity of transactions on the network and are rewarded using the Proof-of-Stake technique. For the privilege to operate nodes, a crucial part of the blockchain infrastructure, all validators commit their native MATIC currencies from Polygon. According to Polygon, NASDAQ-listed business DraftKings’ decision to join the network was a huge step forward in blockchain usage.
