EY selects Polygon to scale its enterprise blockchain products on Ethereum

Ethereum

Announced on Monday, EY’s flagship blockchain services including EY OpsChain and EY Blockchain Analyzer will be integrated with Polygon, allowing transactions to be committed to Ethereum via the sidechain.

EY emphasized that its enterprise clients will have access to increased transaction throughput with predictable fees and settlement times using Polygon.

The firm also revealed it is working with Polygon to offer permissioned, private optimistic rollup chains. Rollups are a second-layer scaling solution that provides increased security and efficiency compared to transacting on the Ethereum mainnet. Paul Brody, EY Global Blockchain Leader, remarked:

Ernst & Young (EY), one of the ‘Big Four’ consulting multinationals, will connect its blockchain solutions to Polygon to mitigate the scalability constraints of Ethereum’s mainnet. 

“Working with Polygon provides EY teams with a powerful set of tools to scale transactions for clients and offers a faster roadmap to integration on the public Ethereum mainnet.”

Polygon co-founder Sandeep Nailwal praised EY for its commitment to the Ethereum ecosystem and open technology standards.

While EY has continued to iterate its layer-two zero-knowledge proof protocol Nightfall, the firm also helped launch the open-source Baseline Protocol in March 2020.

Demand for Ethereum scaling solutions has surged in recent months amid the persistently high fees associated with transacting on mainnet. As such, the total value locked (TVL) on the Polygon network has surged from roughly $1 billion at the start of April to $8.5 billion today.
