Polygon 2.0 aims to create a network of interconnected zero knowledge-powered L2 chains that can scale Ethereum to the size of the Internet. To achieve this, three Polygon Improvement Proposals (PIPs) have been released, detailing the specific changes that will take place in early Q4 of this year.
One of the key aspects of Polygon 2.0 is the upgrade from the MATIC token to the new POL token. POL will serve as the native (gas) token and staking token for Polygon PoS. It will enable staking, community ownership, and governance within the ecosystem. The POL token will have an initial supply of 10 billion and a yearly emission of 2%, distributed between validator staking rewards and a community treasury.
Additionally, a proposal has been made to update the native gas token on Polygon PoS from MATIC to POL. This upgrade will ensure maximum backwards compatibility, with the native token on Polygon PoS changing from a claim on the MATIC Bridge to a claim on the POL Bridge.
