Following the route of Solana, the popular layer-2 scaling solution, Polygon has announced a partnership with Nothing, the creator of Phone (1), to bring Web3 to smartphones.
Polygon Bringing Its Tech to Smartphones
Polygon announced that its partnership with the tech startup Nothing would see both companies work together to integrate Polygon’s technology into Nothing’s first smartphone called the Nothing Phone (1).
The first step of the partnership is an NFT project dubbed “Nothing Community Dots.” This phase of the project would see Polygon airdrop tokens to Nothing community investors.
The airdropped Black Dot NFTs from Nothing will give holders early access to new products and events. Among the first rewards are invites to Nothing Phone (1)’s launch in London on July 12.
The Future of the Polygon – Nothing Partnership
In the future, Polygon will integrate into the Android-based Nothing Phone (1) with easy access to the Polygon platform, the many payment options, dapps, and games of Polygon’s network.
Nothing Phone users will also get access to payments and future features like Polygon ID, the company’s zero-knowledge and proof-based identification solution.
On The Flipside
- In addition to partnering with mobile phone manufacturer, Osom, Solana launched Solana Mobile Stack, a software ecosystem designed for Android.
