Polygon Edge is a modular and extensible framework for building Ethereum-compatible blockchain networks, sidechains, and general scaling solutions.
Its primary use is to bootstrap a new blockchain network while providing full compatibility with Ethereum smart contracts and transactions. It uses IBFT (Istanbul Byzantine Fault Tolerant) consensus mechanism, supported in two flavours as PoA (proof of authority) and PoS (proof of stake).

This is a work in progress so architectural changes may happen in the future. The code has not been audited yet, so please contact the Polygon team if you would like to use it in production.
