Sandeep is the co-founder and Chief Operating Officer of Polygon (formerly Matic Network), an Ethereum scaling solution that at its peak was valued at over $15bn. He founded Polygon with his co-founders Jaynti Kanani and Anurag Arjun in 2017 after experiencing a ‘lightbulb moment’ around how they might fix the scalability issues inherent in Ethereum’s architecture.
Polygon is the first practical solution that allows users to transact for fractions of a penny as opposed to spending potentially thousands of dollars on Ethereum during peak hours of operation. Polygon hopes to accelerate the adoption of Web 3.0 – recently raising $100m for a new Polygon Studios fund to accelerate gaming and NFT efforts in the ecosystem.
Sandeep has also spearheaded the India Crypto Relief Fund which has raised over $440m to help combat COVID’s devastating impact on the country (https://cryptorelief.in/).
