Polygon, an Ethereum-based scaling platform that has onboarded millions of people to Web 3.0, has announced a blockchain partnership with DraftKings Marketplace, a digital collectibles ecosystem created by DraftKings for mainstream accessibility, to support custom NFT drops and secondary-market transactions.

DraftKings Marketplace now has a scalable, environmentally friendly blockchain technology that allows for more throughput and expanded capabilities.

DraftKings would be able to engage in the Polygon blockchain main network’s proof-of-stake consensus protocol to produce blocks, join Polygon’s governance, and contribute to network security as a leader in Polygon’s future with the option of becoming a validator.

Since its introduction in early August, DraftKings Marketplace has already hosted Autograph’s Preseason Access Collection NFT drops of legendary players like Tom Brady, Wayne Gretzky, Naomi Osaka, Simone Biles, and Derek Jeter, which all sold out practically instantly.

The Polygon brand has extended further into the blockchain gaming and NFT industry with the creation of Polygon Studios earlier this summer to raise awareness and adoption of NFTs.

Polygon’s infrastructure serves over 100,000 blockchain gamers, as well as popular Web 3.0 games and metaverses, all of which contribute to high-quality gameplay.
