Polygon is the only blockchain to join the prestigious class of 2022, this year focused on AI, NFTs, and AR technologies

The Ethereum scaling platform is one of six selected companies to join the 2022 Disney Accelerator Program. This year’s edition will provide participants with guidance and mentorship from Disney’s senior leadership team. Disney going full steam ahead into Web3 projects is a major milestone for global adoption. No surprise, the price of MATIC rose 24% in the week of the announcement.

This year, the chosen projects are all about building technologies such as augmented reality (AR), non-fungible tokens (NFTs), and artificial intelligence (AI).

In addition to Polygon being a platform for Ethereum scaling development, they also invest in NFTs and metaverse gaming projects like Decentraland and The Sandbox through Polygon Studios. Now, Disney’s goal with this edition is to help “develop new technologies and storytelling canvasses to create connected experiences across physical, digital, and virtual worlds.”

This is not the first time we’ve heard of the entertainment giant pursuing a Metaverse of their own. In February 2022, the Walt Disney Company appointed executive Mike White to oversee their Metaverse strategy. Recent news suggests that the two companies’ partnership will mean more exciting projects to keep an eye on in the future.
