Polygon’s (MATIC) Gas Prices Have Skyrocketed as a Result of This Game
Users of decentralised apps built on the Polygon (MATIC) blockchain are prepared to sign a petition to stop Sunflower Farmers from consuming all of the ecosystem’s resources.
According to Bloomberg Crypto, Sunflower Farmers participants have overloaded the Polygon (MATIC) blockchain network. Here’s how the enthusiasm around a single game can effectively shut down one of the leading smart contract platforms.
According to Bloomberg’s Olga Kharif, a surge in in-game engagement on Polygon’s (MATIC) Sunflower Farmers play-to-earn system drove median gas prices to astronomical heights.
According to statistics published by major Polygon explorers, gas costs on Polygon (MATIC) rose to new all-time highs in the early days of 2022.
Sunflower Farmers are depleting the resources of Polygon
On January 1-3, Polygon boosted its gas tariffs by 600 percent. The most evident reason for the breakdown of the first major Polygon (MATIC) network is the Sunflower Farmers game’s activity.
Polygon’s users are now submitting over two million transactions per 24 hours. The game surpassed USD Coin and Wrapped MATIC token contracts as the largest gas consumption on Polygon Network.
Due to the fact that the game currently consumes more than 70% of Polygon’s resources, several users of the same network’s dApps have advocated starting a petition to block Sunflower Farms from accessing Polygon.
That a result, Polygon will implode in the same manner as Ethereum did in 2020-2021. As previously reported by U.Today, Ponzi scams MMM Crypto and Forsage blocked the Ethereum (ETH) network.
While some observers assert that this is only a phase of Polygon’s growth, developers may begin contemplating transferring their apps to other EVM-compatible blockchains.
