What is PlotX?
PlotX is a decentralized prediction market protocol that provides crypto traders to place predictions on the price of different cryptocurrencies and reward the traders accordingly.
PlotX v1 was launched in October 2020 and saw great numbers of users coming in within the first few months, but the users started to decline as PlotX v1 was built on ethereum which caused a lot of issues regarding the high cost of the gas fee.
To solve this issue PlotX v2 was launched on the polygon network on 14th May 2021, This was the beginning of a cross-chain journey for PlotX. V2 launch was very important for plotx as it made the platform much faster and solved the following major issues.
- The polygon network helped users to make predictions without having to pay any gas fee.
- Bridge technology was introduced to help users to transfer funds from L1 to L2 and the other way around.
- Provided Liquidity: Even if there are no users predicting in the same market as you, you will still get rewarded.
- A new and faster UI was introduced with the V2 of PlotX.
