Polyland Architecture

Consensus layer : Polygon

Our consensus layer, Polygon, is used to track asset ownership and its content. Asset ownership is established at the consensus layer, where asset content is referenced through a hash of the file’s content.

Distribution layer : IPFS storage

From file's content references, the asset content is downloaded from IPFS. The content file contains a description of objects, textures, sounds, and other elements needed to render the asset. It also contains the URL of a server that coordinates connections between P2P users that are playing in the same area simultaneously.

Real time layer : Proper centralized server

The asset file also contains the URL of a server that coordinates connections between P2P users that are playing in the same area simultaneously.
