Just today, Polygon Network has joined the FirstBlood ecosystem to offer competitive gaming competitions to millions of esports players. Polygon, the blockchain scalability platform formerly known as Matic Network, teamed up with FirstBlood Technologies, the competitive gaming platform and parent company of Dawn Protocol, to bring the global esports community competitive challenges where players can challenge the field and earn real rewards for excelling in the world’s most popular titles available today.
