Ethereum scaling tool Polygon is partnering with startup Nothing to bring Web3 to smartphones.
The NFT project, dubbed “Nothing Community Dots,” gives Nothing community investors free tokens in exchange for their donations. Early access to new products and events are among the perks available.
The following are some of the early incentives: a ticket to Nothing Phone (1)’s launch in London on July 12.
Two weeks after Solana revealed that it was working on its own blockchain phone called Saga, which will include a Web3 dapp (decentralized app) marketplace and a vault for storing private keys.
The effort to develop a blockchain-native phone has been attempted before. In 2018, Sirin Labs tried the same, but it failed to take off and resulted in layoffs and a lawsuit for unpaid factory costs.
The next stage for Web3 is for it to be accessible via smartphones, as Polygon and Solana’s efforts may lead to its widespread usage through the convenience of everyday cellphones.
