Polygon Completes Hard Fork to Reduce Gas Fee Spikes, Disruptive Reorgs
The software upgrade occurred at 10:45 UTC (5:45 a.m. ET) on Tuesday, according to a tweet from Polygon Labs, the lead company behind the project. The two proposals included in the hard fork were put forth in December.The first proposal adjusted a mechanism that sets gas fees – a kind of tax one pays in order to transact on a blockchain. The new mechanism aims to keep gas prices low when there is a lot of activity on the network. The second proposal aims to reduce the amount of time it takes to complete a data block – part of an effort to prevent frequent reorgs, which occur when a validator node receives information that temporarily creates a new version of the blockchain.

While there is significant focus on the consumer metaverse from companies like Meta, which have been investing billions in the sector, the WEF believes that industries will be the ones pushing innovation. The organization believes that, once these two different metaverses are established, one will be able to improve the other and vice versa.
