Polygon and Earn Alliance Partner to Bring Next 100 Million Gamers to Web33
Earlier this month, we saw the end of the Web3: Made in India campaign, a Polygon tour across the country to celebrate developers building the future of the web. The campaign revolved around a central, powerful idea: If Web2 emerged from the culture of Silicon Valley, Web3 is the provenance of developers all over the world.
That’s why the team from Polygon is excited to touchdown at Taipei Blockchain Week, Dec. 12-17!
Polygon Helps Launch BLR-Metaport, World’s First Airport Metaverse
Bangalore International Airport Limited (BIAL) recently launched the first phase of BLR Metaport, the world’s first metaverse experience for an airport, in collaboration with AWS, Intel and Polygon.
The BLR Metaport, a product of the Joint Innovation Center (JIC), will introduce travelers, enterprises, and the community to an immersive 3D virtual experience of Bangalore Airport’s newly launched Terminal 2 via both wearable VR headsets and popular web browsers. JIC was set up by BIAL earlier this year with AWS, Intel and Polygon to drive the development and adoption of cutting-edge digital solutions in aviation.
