Sunflower Farmers Bogs Down the Polygon Network
Layer 2 solution, Polygon,has ran into a place of bother in the form of Sunflower Farmers.Crypto-based botany is apparently so popular that it has braked down transaction speeds and sent gas fees spiraling upwards.
Over subsequent weeks, the attention on the platform has been nothing short of extraordinary. Outpacing any other game on the market and amassing a grandtotal of 357k active users. This, tied with its transaction-heavy gameplay, has put a strain on Polygon’s usually dependable infrastructure. So much so, that several sister dApps have postponed launches because of it.
All of this will come as distressing news to the wider crypto world as a massive raft of immensely awaited games are preparing to launch on the network. If the likes of Ember Sword and Galaxy Fight Club would launch alongside SunflowerFarmers, then it could potentially spell disaster. Despite all of this, with fees presently maxing out at 700 GWEI, they still pale in contrast to those of the Ethereum Network. However, Polygon will need to get busy if it wants to avoid the inevitable slowdown.
