Announced on Monday, EY’s leading blockchain services including EY OpsChain and EY Blockchain Analyzer will be integrated with Polygon, allowing transactions to be committed to Ethereum via the side chain.

EY has ensured that its enterprise customers will have access to increased transaction throughput with predictable fees and settlement times with Polygon.

The company also revealed that it is working with Polygon to offer licensed, privately owned Optimistic assembly chains. Rollup is a layer 2 scaling solution that offers more security and efficiency compared to transactions on the Ethereum mainnet. Paul Brody, EY Global Blockchain Leader, said:

Ernst & Young (EY), a “big” multinational advisory firm, will connect its blockchain solutions to Polygon to ease scalability constraints on the Ethereum mainnet.

“Working with Polygon provides EY teams with a powerful set of tools for scaling customers’ transactions and provides a faster roadmap for integration on the public Ethereum mainnet.”

Polygon co-founder Sandeep Nailwal praised EY for its commitment to the Ethereum ecosystem and open technology standards.

While EY continued to iterate on the Layer 2 Proof-of-Zero-Knowledge Nightfall protocol, the company also helped launch the open source baseline protocol in March 2020.

Demand for Ethereum scaling solutions has surged in recent months amid persistently high fees associated with dealing on the mainnet. As such, the total closed-end value (TVL) on the Polygon network has risen from about $1 billion at the beginning of April to $8.5 billion today.
