What happens if Polygon goes bust?

As a CTO, I’m constantly performing due diligence on technologies, potential partners and so on. One of the biggest risks of relying on an external company, product or service is it creates a dependency, and plans need to be put in place to mitigate the effects of that dependency letting you down.

Now, Polygon is quite clearly the leading company in the L2 space, but what would happen should they go bust? Would the chain still be accessible? Would validators still be prepared to hold and mine a dead token? Has this scenario already happened with other alt coins?

Thanks :slight_smile:

What did you do during 2008 financial crisis?
Have you stopped interacting with any bank?

Erm, not quite the same…banks are regulated with at least some safeguards in place :slight_smile:
