Walt Disney has announced that Ethereum scaling tool Polygon has been selected to join its new 2022 ‘Accelerator Program’. In doing so, Polygon joins five other companies that are already onboard the Web3 effort, however the company serves as the only blockchain-native platform to be selected.
That being said, Polygon is certainly not the only Web3-native company within the program, as it also includes Flickpay, a social app that enables users to discover NFTs tied to real-world locations, Lockerverse, a Web3 platform that empowers creators and brands to curate culture-defining stories and experiences, and Obsess, a platform which enables brands to create immersive 3D virtual stores on websites and metaverse platforms. The other two companies in the program are AI-centric platform Inworld and AR company Red 6.
According to a statement made by the world’s third largest media and entertainment conglomerate, its 2022 Accelerator program is a business and development program that’s designed to enhance the growth of innovative companies around the world.
More specifically, and as the aforementioned list of companies suggested, the program will be looking to develop technologies which relate to the new era of immersive experiences. This means areas such as NFTs, as well as metaverse-related smart terminal technologies like augmented reality and artificial intelligence, will be of primary focus.
Over the course of the program, Polygon, along with the five other firms, will receive guidance from Disney’s senior leadership team, as well as advice from a dedicated executive mentor.
