Polygon and Orbs Launch New DeFi.Org Accelerator Program

Tel Aviv, Israel–(Newsfile Corp. – May 18, 2022) – Polygon, the leading blockchain development platform offering sustainable Web3 infrastructure, is accelerating its growth across decentralized finance. Polygon explores exciting opportunities with, a community-led decentralized finance accelerator, and Orbs, a Layer 3 blockchain infrastructure project.

Polygon and announced the launch of a new DeFi accelerator program. It is a special round for the team as the focus shifts to projects incorporating key technologies and infrastructure. this round will see the development of projects using Polygon’s L2 capabilities and Orbs’ L3 infrastructure.

Focusing on Layer 2 + 3 DeFi applications is the next step for builders passionate about developing on Ethereum. The network has a substantial technology stack to tap into. Polygon provides the scalability Ethereum needs, and Orbs introduces smart contract enhancement in ways not possible before. DeFi applications leveraging Ethereum’s security, Polygon’s scaling, and Orbs’ layer 3 capabilities will be at the frontier of next-generation decentralized finance innovation.

All accelerator round participants are required to build on Polygon. However, those that pay attention to utilizing Orbs’ L3 infrastructure will be subject to special consideration. Orbs offers a dedicated L3 enhancement layer operating in conjunction with EVM-based L1s and L2s. Moreover, it enriches any EVM smart contract’s capabilities, introducing more opportunities for exotic ideas.

Participants in this upcoming accelerator round will receive various benefits, including funding opportunities, mentorship, and market exposure. Additionally, will provide a liquidity injection for promising projects and a feature on the website and other selected venues on launch.

Teams and developers can submit their projects to the accelerator today using the Application Form or email to [email protected]. Anonymous applications are welcome, although they will be reviewed carefully.

All participation is subject to the accelerator T&C, found here.
