“This is sooo soo cool !! All Awesome Women in Crypto in one place !! United Women Power.”
Matic Network COO
May：Welcome to 499Block!
Nailwal：Hi All, Thank you so much for inviting me here and giving me a chance to speak about Matic Network to you all.Very excited !!!
May：Let's start!Alright， it's my honor to be the host today!Thank you Sandeep and Thank you ladies. Our first question would be What is Matic Network and also how did you guys come together to start Matic?
Nailwal：Sure, Matic Network is a Layer 2 scaling solution that achieves scale by utilizing sidechains for off-chain computation, while ensuring asset security using the Plasma framework and a decentralized network of Proof-of-Stake (PoS) validators. In very simple terms, solving the problems that blockchains face i.e Scalability (slow transactions , very high fees) & bad user experience on Layer 2.
We three co founders have been active for a long time in the Indian blockchain space and have been working as friends on various blockchain research problems.
We decided to come together after realizing the fact that the Blockchain scaling space had a lot of problems to be solved in terms of its implementation, user experience and viability.
We founded Matic to provide developers better options for building their D-Apps on L2 solutions. We are glad that today , Matic is THE Biggest blockchian platform of India. There are many startups building or are planning to build on Matic Network because of superior User experience and more importantly, superior Developer Experience.So yeah, that's in a nutshell is story of Matic .
May：Super! As the most well-known Indian blockchain project, do you have specific plan to leverage Indian community?
Nailwal：Yeah, our focus is Developers.
I believe in simple theory :
1. Bring more developers on the platform
2. Make it easy for them to develop their product and focus on their user applications
3. When developers build killer applications, users will come, so enable them
4. Happy users will be bring more users and hence Network effects. That means mass adoption and thats how the network will grow in Value and its reach.
Now, I will give you examples of these above points in action, these are not merely words or theory.
So for point no. 1.
We have been judges and mentors is over 20+ hackathons in the last year itself all accross India. I can happily tell you that almost all the Top Technology schools in India have had some or the other interaction with Matic and upcoming developers and students know about Matic very well.
We have been Judges at Ethereum Global events like Ethereum India , Ethereum Singapore . In Ethereum Singapore, our CEO & CTO Jaynti was a judge alongside might Vitalik Buterin.
So we are doing a lot to bring developers.
For point no. 2
Many of you wont know that , Matic is the owner of famous Ethereum Event Product called EthDAGGER (which helps developers to catch events in the smart contracts and do interactions with users on their mobile app, for ex. you recieved money , they can catch the event and show you a mobile notification, SMS , Email whatever.
Dagger also comes with Zapier integrations , where with very less amount of work , even without being a developer you can integrate SMS, Email, Discord, Whatsapp, Slack with Ethereum events.
Also, we wrote the core protocol for WalletConnect which brings Wechat kind of features to Ethereum. You can simply scan QR code to play games, make payments, or interact with any kind of smart contract. We also have a full blown Plasma wallet for developers to build easily and focus on their application feature, without caring about the infrastructure.Also, we support Solidity (Ethereum's language) and that makes is a 2 min job for an Ethereum developer to migrate the application to Layer 2.
Those are BIG things for Developer experience, and when the developers see its easy to build on Matic, they come in large numbers.
Point no. 3
We help developers with funding, technical help etc to support them.We have $500k USD program for our developers , to support them through their MVP space. So yeah , these are the things we've been doing to bring developers and grow the platform in India.
I am sorry for the BIGGG answer. The question got me excited to tell you what all we have been doing.
May：SO, let's move 499 block to Ethereum~ Sandeep will help us.
Nailwal：Absolutelyyyyyy !!!Would love too.
May：Yea, we would be the first on chain female community.
Nailwal：I have heard that 499Block community is one of the most amazing Crypto Community in China.
I am so honoured to be speaking to you . Thanks May for facilitating this !!!
May：You are very welcome! It is the most amazing crypto community in China for sure.
Nailwal：The pleasure and honor is all mine.
May：We are glad to hear so many progress, but what were the major tech challenges faced by Matic team?
Nailwal：You know what, I was thinking about this idea too, We dont have anything like this in India.
This is sooo soo cool !! All Awesome Women in Crypto in one place !!
United Women Power.
Trista：Let's gether the India Blcokchain Industry woman practitioner together!!!
Nailwal：Lemme know if you want to plan 499 Chapter in India. Would love to faciliate it.
