Decentralized financial contracts platform UMA Protocol has revealed it is scaling to Polygon. The platform also gave an overview of its “broader scaling strategy” with plans to scale more EVM-compatible chains.
The rationale behind the move is to allow developers to continue enjoying the benefits of scaling solutions, alongside maintaining the practice that their contracts are secured by UMA’s DVM (Data Verification Mechanism).
“Polygon is only the first scaling solution on the list, and UMA will be extending support to the other solutions. Priority is placed on chains that show the most substantial developer interest for UMA,” the platform stated.
OpenOcean, a DeFi and CeFi aggregator focused on offering the best price, has released a demo of a cross-chain swap. They plan to make it possible to carry out out the cross-chain swap with the best price on their platform.

OpenOcean also sets its sights on creating a full aggregator for crypto trading that bridges “the isolated islands in DeFi and CeFi.”
