Agreed, I think Polygon should definitely be implemented. The DeFi ecosystem on that chain is too large to ignore. The BSC deployment makes sense, but to be honest, it seems like EVM compatible chains like Polygon should be a higher priority for deployment over non-EVM chains like Solana which will require unique tooling to support. I’m not saying we shouldn’t be deploying on Solana and non-EVM chains. We absolutely should. But we can do these in parallel, yeah? They don’t have to be mutually exclusive. And seems like low hanging fruit that we’re just leaving on the vine so to speak.
Sushiswap, Curve, Aave, Pickle, Harvest, PoolTogether, and more… all deployed in some form or fashion on Polygon, meaning there are plenty of ibTokens to choose from for new cauldrons. For example, Curve’s aDAI+aUSDC+aUSDT pool on Polygon would make an excellent candidate and would probably be very popular with borrowers on the chain.
Another consideration in favor of an earlier Polygon deployment - Dharma now supports direct Fiat-to-Polygon on-ramps, meaning borrowers could acquire Polygon assets and then borrow $MIM against them without having to deal with Ethereum L1’s expensive gas fees at all. And to top it off, if users needed to extract value from their assets for real world expenses (aka bills, holiday gifts, lambos), they would be able to borrow against them easily on Polygon and off-ramp back to fiat without the headache and hassle of having to bridge back to Ethereum L1 and transfer to a CEX to do so. To me, that’s a huge value add.
