Polygon (formerly known as Matic Network) is a protocol and framework consisting of an ecosystem of scaling solutions. Ethereum faces challenges like high transaction fees and slow transaction turnaround, due to the network being highly congested. Scaling solutions are technologies that aim to solve these problems by building on top of the parent blockchain. Polygon is primarily a side chain that offloads transactions onto a blockchain that runs parallel with the Ethereum blockchain but is also developing various scaling solution technologies including plasma chains, optimistic rollups, and ZK Rollups.
The Polygon Network has adaptations resulting in faster and cheaper transactions that settle on the parent chain. There has been notable success in their first venture onto the Ethereum blockchain, boasting instant ERC-20 exchanges on the network.
The MATIC token will continue to exist and also plays a pivotal role in securing the Polygon platform and enabling governance. MATIC currently sits in the top 20 biggest digital currencies by market cap.

Polygon is a layer 2 scaling solution which means it improves the efficiency of a layer 1 blockchain (i.e. Ethereum).
