Polygon Partners with Eclipse for Solana-based Rollups

Polygon has announced a new partnership with Eclipse, a provider of rollup technology, to further enhance blockchain interoperability using the Solana network. The collaboration will enable developers to migrate their decentralized applications (dApps) from the Solana network to Polying through the use of the Polygon SVM.

“Ethereum was obviously still really slow and still very expensive, so it was very obvious rollups were the path to scaling Ethereum,” said Neel Somani, the founder of Eclipse.

This will offer greater flexibility and scalability for dApps, allowing them to interact more seamlessly across different blockchain networks. The partnership is expected to boost the adoption of Solana's blockchain technology, which has been gaining popularity due to its high speed and low transaction fees.

The move comes a day after Polygon co-founder, Sandeep Nailwal, said that he "sees no future for Solana," only to partner with a project providing Solana tooling as a scaling solution for Polygon-based applications. Previously, the Polygon foundation gave a $3 million grant to DeLabs for the NFT collection y00ts to migrate to Polygon.

Solana, however, does not require a scaling solution or to give grants to projects to come to its ecosystem.
