As per a 3 May announcement, Polygon launched three updates to make it easier for developers to integrate a decentralized identity into dApps.

 

Exciting times for Polygon developers

Polygon introduced new features to the Polygon ID infrastructure tools which included providing better integration, UX and a host of new tools to assist developers who were building dApps on the chain.


As far as the integration bit was concerned, developers will have the ability to share specific fields from a credential with other parties via the Selective Disclosure feature, enabling them to develop new use cases.

Moreover, with the new JS SDK, developers may build identity clients for a variety of gadgets, including web wallets and browser add-ons.

In order to make the user experience better, Polygon rolled out the new issuer node UI. The node will make it easier to set up, manage, and work with the issuer node. Additionally, push notification support was provided in the mobile SDK and in the reference implementation app.

Apart from this, developer tools and updates like JWZ Validator, Polygon ID smart contracts deployment on mainnet and the recently announced PolygonID DID resolver, were highlighted.

Mixed response to the upgrades

Polygon’s network enhancements grabbed the attention of the crypto community, leading them to come on board. As per Token Terminal, daily active users increased by more than 13% over the last week.

However, despite the jump in active addresses, daily transaction fees collected on the network declined steadily. Over the past 24 hours, the fees plunged 14%.

After a sharp fall during last week, MATIC’s network growth rejuvenated since the start of May. This indicated that upgrades were attracting new users.

The transaction volume in profit surged to its highest value in more than a month on 2 May, implying that investors started to lock in their gains. The MVRV Ratio also started to ascend towards the positive region, sparking fears of more sell-offs.
