The most reliable RPC endpoint for the Polygon network

The second key driver of relays was Polygon Mainnet, increasing by 355% this week, requesting 225M relays compared to 49M the previous week. This was largely due to Pocket being added to the networks RPC endpoint aggregator across several different types of providers.

The node infrastructure continued to grow with another 832 nodes getting added in this week.
