T-Mobile Parent Joins Polygon Blockchain as Validator


Deutsche Telekom has previously supported infrastructure and run nodes on at least five other chains, including Ethereum

T-Mobile parent company Deutsche Telekom has become a validator on Polygon, a popular Ethereum scaling solution.

Deutsche Telekom’s subsidiary, Deutsche Telekom MMS, will physically be running nodes on Polygon, joining 100 other validators on the network, according to a press release

Additionally, the company will be providing staking services to Polygon’s Supernets, which are application-specific chains that bridge associated rootchains to the mainnet. They are supposed to provide scalability and interoperability for decentralized applications (dapps), according to Polygon.

Dirk Röder, head of Deutsche Telekom’s Blockchain Solutions Center, in a statement said running Polygon nodes represents an “important step for Deutsche Telekom MMS to fully exploit the potential of blockchain technology and enable applications suitable for mass deployment.”

The executive added that Deutsche Telekom will be supporting Polygon staking, although it’s unclear whether the company plans to offer staking services directly to the public. 

Röder told Blockworks that the company is “making significant commitments to expand its presence and reliability as an infrastructure provider in the Web3 domain.”

“Supporting the Polygon network as a Validator is a big milestone in this objective,” Röder said. Deutsche Telekom MMS is also working on a more “advanced solution specifically tailored for the Ethereum network,” without providing further detail.

Deutsche Telekom has previously stepped in to run infrastructure for other chains, including Flow, Celo, Chainlink and Ethereum itself.CRYPTOCASTER® - DECENTRALIZED FREEDOM!

We hope you appreciated this article. Before you move on, I was hoping you would consider taking the step of supporting CryptoCaster’s journalism. 

From  Elon Musk, Larry Fink(BlackRock) to Jamie Dimon(JP Morgan Chase) a number of billionaire owners have a powerful hold on so much of the hidden agendas’ which eludes the public concerning the paradigm shift juxtaposed by cryptocurrency and web3 emerging technologies. CryptoCaster is different. We have no billionaire owner or shareholders to consider. Our journalistic efforts are produced to serve the public interest in crypto development and institutional disruptions – not profit motives.

And we avoid the trap that befalls much U.S. and global media – the tendency, born of a desire to please all sides, to engage in false equivalence in the name of neutrality and retail consumer protection. While fairness and transparency dictates everything we do, we know there is a right and a wrong position in the fight against fiat global banking interest and monetary reconstruction precipitated by the emerging crypto ecology.

When we report on issues like the FTX, Binance and Ripple crisis, we’re not afraid to name who or what is uncovered. And as a crypto sentinel, we’re able to provide a fresh, outsider perspective on the global monetary disruption – one so often missing from the insular American and European media bubble. 

Around the world, readers can access the CryptoCaster’s paywall-free journalism because of our unique reader-supported model. That’s because of people like you. Our readers keep us independent, beholden to no outside influence and accessible to everyone – whether they can afford to pay for news and information, or not.
