How is the integrity of the blockchain maintained? Is there any relationship between the platform and the entity that developed the blockchain?

The integrity of the blockchain has a Proof of Stake consensus algorithm, the network relies on a set of validators, who are their operators, to secure the network.

With polygon, our projects have a dedicated blockchain network that combines the best features of stand-alone blockchains (sovereignty, scalability and flexibility) and Ethereum (security, interoperability and developer experience). Additionally, these blockchains are compatible with all the existing Ethereum tools (Metamask, MyCrypto, Remix etc), and can exchange messages among themselves and with Ethereum.

Polygon Relationship

Rare Goods works closely with the leadership at Polygon for more efficient deployments, preferred channels of communication, co-marketing opportunities, early access to new features, etc. Polygon and Rare Goods are currently also in active discussions for an official strategic partnership that will allow our platform access to exclusive features, rates, and capabilities not available to other vendors. 

Outside of our core NFT platform, Rare Goods utilizes Polygon’s technology for our Digital Diploma and Certification system, our Moment in Time product, our partnership with Universal Music, and other technical utilities within our decentralized product line and offerings.

No Exclusive Established – There is nothing stopping us from potentially utilizing other blockchains in the future as the nature of this space and industry evolves quickly. If superior new technologies arise over the next few years, we make look to embrace new blockchains or tokens. No shift would be made without a comprehensive plan and review happening will all clients and stakeholders first.
