About Solution Providers Network

The Polygon Solution Provider Network (SPN) is a global community of middleware, infrastructure, and dev tool providers building on Polygon protocols. Through this community, developers, encompassing individuals, businesses, and enterprises that build decentralized applications (dApps) on Polygon protocols, can connect with their desired Solution Providers (“SPs”) to supercharge their decentralized applications. Meanwhile, Solution Providers (i.e. fiat on-ramps, bridge providers, oracles, RPC providers, etc.) can demonstrate their product, case studies, and code samples to reach more developers as well as engaging more deeply with the Polygon ecosystem.

What are the key features of the SPN?

The SPN is an iterative, long-term project with various features including but not limited to:
  • The SPN website which acts as the connecting tissue between developers and SPs;
  • Gamified experience for SPs that would like to gain more visibility within the Polygon ecosystem; and
  • Guides and reference implementations for developers to explore SPs in practice.

What are the benefits of participating in the SPN?

For SPs, the main benefit of participating in the SPN is discoverability: SPs get a chance to showcase their product, case studies, and code samples in a developer-friendly way. In addition to providing discoverability to SPs, SPN’s points and badges based engagement model provides incentives to the participating SPs to complete low effort / high impact tasks to get more visibility within the Polygon ecosystem.

For developers, the main benefit of using the SPN is connecting: developers can search, find, and connect with a variety of SPs directly through the SPN website. Participating SPs commit to responding to the connection requests they receive in a timely manner, ensuring that developers can actually contact their team to discuss potential integration or development opportunities.

How do I participate in the SPN?

If you are an SP, all you need to do is to fill out the SP Intake Form and ensure that you are already integrated with at least one of the Polygon protocols including Polygon PoS, zkEVM, CDK-developed chains, and Miden (in the future). Polygon Labs will use the information provided to populate your internal and developer-facing profiles. In the future, as more functionality is added to the project, you will have the opportunity to manage your own profile.

If you are a developer, you can simply use the publicly available SPN website to search, find, and connect with the SPs you would like to work with.

What is Polygon Labs' role in SPN?

Polygon Labs serves a limited role in the administration of the SPN by reviewing and accepting SPN forms from prospective SPN members, and in a neutral fashion, showcasing the availability of Solution Provider products and services to developers. Importantly, Polygon Labs is not a party to any transaction between SPs and developers, will not assist in resolving any disputes between the parties, and is not financially or otherwise liable for any engagements between SPs and developers connecting through the SPN.
