Ben Watley who is another gaming industry executive will be joining Polygon Studios from Electronic Arts and he will mostly focus on gaming strategies along with fellow hire Will Matteson who worked at NASA.

As recently reported, The Polygon network has three layers and each one serves a distinct purpose. The ETH layer runs smart contracts while the Bor Layer helps in generating blocks and the fault lies in the third Heimdall layer. The bug caused the different Heimdall validators to be on different versions of the chain and hasn’t reached the 2/3 consensus. The outage for a few hours was expected and was notified by the Polygon team with the 11-hour extended outage which became a reason for concern for most projects and traders.
The Polygon network fixed another upgrade bug back in 2021 after the security partner discovered a bug that can put $24 billion worth of funds at risk. As per the latest Polygonscan data, the network started producing timely blocks and the team assured the network bug was taken care of.
