The Bollant Industries initiative is one of many projects helping to reduce environmental impact globally. This initiative has the added benefit of helping impoverished communities to accumulate economic independence.
Erin Grover, Head of Emerging Markets at Digital RFQ Limited (part of Nukkleus Inc) commented: "Polygon will be providing a grant to Bollant Industries. This generous act is a refreshing reminder of the blockchain philosophy of financial inclusion. We look forward to many more industry leaders following in their footsteps as we develop a global network of democratized payment solutions for communities that are ready to adopt crypto."
Polygon, founded in India, reaching a $14B market cap (source: CoinMarketCap, Fully Diluted), has had a long-standing vision to build a world in which communities thrive, unconstrained by national borders and regulations. Polygon has been making crypto payments affordable and accessible to communities all over the world.
Polygon's successful focus on ESG projects powered by blockchain technology has been enabled by its high speed and low cost (nominal gas fees) transaction capabilities, with many successful entrepreneurs now realizing the true value and reason for blockchain technology. Polygon's technology has recently received accolades from billionaire entrepreneur and investor, Mark Cuban, who said while speaking at a recent DeFi Summit virtual conference: "Now, because of what's going on with Polygon, where they're getting so much momentum, it's going to be hard to catch up."
Grassroots Economics Founder Will Ruddick, a leading expert in community inclusion coins and economics commented: "Through the issuance of blockchain tokens backed by their social enterprise's future production, Bollant is destined to be the beacon of local sustainable economy."
