Polygon releases Finity UI design tool for Web3 developers


In an effort to help developers of distributed web3 applications, Ethereum scaling solution Polygon today announced the launch of Finity, a user interface design tool aimed at giving a makeover to the blockchain industry.

Finity is an open-source, cross-platform design studio that enables developers to create high-quality interfaces with scalable, modular, and customizable elements.

Web3 is an emerging ecosystem of decentralized applications based on blockchain technology. Platforms and applications built using Web3 run on peer-to-peer networks and run under software-defined smart contracts.

The past two years have seen web3 become a booming market, but mainstream adoption remains problematic. Polygon believes this is largely due to the poor user experience. This is partly because of the obscure and technical nature of blockchain technology, but also because poor user interface design is not a priority for developers, who tend to focus their attention on other things. other features.

The tool is designed to give web3 developers what they need to create high-quality user interfaces with beautiful aesthetics and get back to what they do best: developing apps. This means developers can produce elegant, easy-to-understand dapps without sacrificing power and scalability.

The product retains much of the visual design language of Web 2.0, such as icons, symbols, typography, etc., and provides a similar landscape for developers to choose from. It then guides them using an equally familiar array of elements such as color palettes, maps, timelines, tooltips, toggle switches, icons, input fields, and more. The end result is that users benefit from a continuum of visual experience between Web 2.0 applications and Web3 applications.

Finity is the first product resulting from Polygon’s acquisition of Cope.Studio, a full-stack development team that creates web3 projects. It also comes shortly after the company raised $450 million in funding led by Sequoia Capital India earlier this month.

“Finity, born out of our acquisition of Cope Studio last month, is the latest demonstration of how Polygon is becoming the AWS for web3,” said Sandeep Nailwal, co-founder of Polygon. “We offer a multi-chain approach with a host of services and solutions spanning scaling solutions, sidechains, blockchain tools and now a fully specified design hub.”

Polygon has been at the forefront of the Web3 app explosion and its own ecosystem hit the milestone of over 7,000 dapps deployed across its network in December, up from just 30 in 2020.

This meteoric growth in the industry has put developers under increasing pressure to keep creating new features and meeting user demand. This has often come at the expense of user experience and therefore hindered mainstream adoption.

Finity is now generally available to Polygon developers and they can get started by downloading it from the developer portal.
