As Polygon [MATIC] gains momentum, co-founder steps in with new initiative
Polygon co-founder announced the launch of the Nailwal Fellowship to provide financial assistance to early stage Web3 developers.

• The active users on Polygon rose to the highest level in five weeks on 16 May.
After a protracted period of lull, network activity on Polygon [MATIC] started to gain strong momentum. As per DeFiLlama, the active users on the Ethereum [ETH] sidechain spiked to 389,000 on 16 May, reaching its highest level in five weeks.
