Polygon Joins Disney’s ‘Accelerator Program’ to Develop AR, NFT, and AI Experiences

With the help of a new project with media conglomerate The Walt Disney Company, Ethereum scaling tool polygon is continuing to scale its Web3 infrastructure.

In a statement released yesterday, The Walt Disney Company revealed the names of the six businesses that will be part of the Disney Accelerator in 2022, a program for accelerating the growth of forward-thinking businesses worldwide. The Disney Accelerator class of this year specializes in technologies like augmented reality (AR), non-fungible tokens (NFTs), and artificial intelligence (AI) characters and is focused on creating the future of immersive experiences.

According to a Disney statement, Polygon is one of the six businesses chosen to participate in its 2022 Accelerator program, a business and development initiative intended to promote the expansion of creative businesses globally.

However, this week marks the start of the Disney Accelerator, which will introduce the class of 2022 to Disney’s imagination, creativity, and knowledge. Each participating company will get inputs from Disney’s senior leadership team and a committed executive mentor throughout the program. In the fall, a Demo Day at The Walt Disney Studios lot in Burbank, California, will mark the end of the Disney Accelerator program.

One important thing to cherish is that the only blockchain-native platform among the six companies chosen is Polygon. Once the news flooded the digital space, the cost of MATIC, Polygon’s native token, increased 5.7% to $0.5786.

At last, the CEO of Disney stated that with their newest class of companies, The Disney Accelerator looks forward to strengthening its dedication to innovation and bringing magical experiences to Disney audiences and guests for the ensuing 100 years.
