Former Polygon VP of growth shares the secrets behind major partnerships


Ethereum scaling solution Polygon has witnessed a lot of adoption through partnerships with major brands like Starbucks and Adidas, which has increased the network’s popularity among cryptocurrency users. In the latest episode of the Hashing It Out podcast, Arjun Kalsy, Polygon’s former vice president of growth, breaks down how the network has attracted partnerships with major brands and how the project is driving mass crypto adoption. 

Before leaving Polygon late last year, Kalsy led a team tasked with onboarding companies to promote the adoption of the network. According to him, talking to brands looking to pivot from Web2 to Web3 or add elements of the decentralized world to their platforms was always enjoyable. The onboarding process involved several technical meetings where the Polygon network and its capabilities were scrutinized by these major brands, who consider integrating other technologies “a big deal.”
