Mogul Partners with Polygon

Mogul to leverage Polygon’s scaling infrastructure for Ethereum-compatible platform and becomes network validator

Mogul Productions, the decentralized film financing (DeFiFi) platform, has partnered with Polygon (formerly Matic Network), to provide an enhanced user experience for Mogul users with near-instant transaction finality.

Mogul’s vision is to be an innovative and progressive film financier and production company by leveraging blockchain technology for voting, film financing, rewards, and distribution. With its proprietary platform, Mogul will engage audiences and financiers throughout the script-to-screen process, with the mission to promote transparency in independent film financing.

Filmmakers, financiers and fans will come together on Mogul’s platform for the first time as Mogul leverages the power of the crowd to help more great films get made and offers fans the chance to lend their voices to the creative process.

To ensure a better user experience for all, Mogul has partnered with Polygon to replace the old style of overcomplicated interfaces that long-suffering early blockchain adopters have been forced to use. Mogul can now offer an easy-to-use interface that retains all the security and privacy attributes enabled by blockchain technology while improving transaction processing and block verification speeds.

The partnership with Polygon will allow Mogul’s platform users to benefit from seamless, secure and instant transactions, free of fees. Mogul will cover all platform gas fees to ensure the best possible Web3 user experience.

“Working with Polygon allows Mogul’s DeFiFi platform to deliver a friction-less blockchain-based user experience for the film industry, while still benefiting from the security and network effects associated with using Ethereum’s mainnet” says Gagan Grewal, CEO of Mogul Productions.“This partnership opens the door for our technology team to add more benefits to our users from script submission to financing, and distribution utilizing blockchain technologies.”

Sandeep Nailwal, Co-Founder and COO of Polygon said of the partnership, “Mogul Productions has built an immersive platform for the future of DeFi in the film industry and their community will now benefit from low fee and high speed transactions. What sets Mogul apart is their commitment to onboarding the next wave of blockchain users from the film industry in a friction-less manner ,and we’re excited to work together!”

As part of the partnership, Mogul will assist in running the Polygon network, operating as a validator, by helping verify transactions on the blockchain through running both Heimdall validator and Bor block producer nodes.

This partnership with Polygon, an industry-leading scaling solution, furthers Mogul’s quest to bring DeFi to the film industry, along with previously announced partnership with Chainlink.
