As of April 26, 2022 Polygon hit 19,000 dApps built on their network. Back in November that number was only 3,000 and slowly started building up. What a freaking milestone this is and it doesn’t just stop there.
There are now officially more than 8,000 monthly active teams building on the Polygon PoS, which is big jump from just 6,000 back in January and just a couple thousand in the month of October.
These numbers are huge and are starting to show the real power and potential of Polygon. Cause although Polygon was usually strictly related and to some extent dependent on Ethereum back in the day, this isn’t the case now cause it’s looking like Polygon is become more and more independent by the day.
Alchemy extracted data which shows that 65% of the teams are working exclusively on Polygon, compared to 35% deployed on Ethereum. These numbers include dApps running on both the testnet and the mainnet.
This alone shows how easy it is to operate and build on Polygon. Men lie, women lie but numbers don’t and so far its looking like builders are leaning more towards Polygon.
Developers spend endless hours working backend infrastructure instead of focusing all these hours on being innovative and building new and unique dApps so I’m glad to see chains like Polygon solve this problem.
