YouTube’s Head of Gaming Joins Polygon MATIC

Ryan Wyatt, the man responsible for bringing many top Twitch streamers over to YouTube Gaming, which now receives over 250 million daily logged users, has left to join Polygon Studios as their new CEO.

Polygon Studios is the gaming division of the Polygon MATIC network which is currently the 14th highest ranked crypto in the world in terms of market cap.

This is just one of the latest big moves that Polygon is taking to position themselves as one of the main players in the next stage of crypto.

Polygon Studios is already partnered with Atari, OpenSea, The Sandbox, and Decentraland just to name a few.

As for Wyatt’s main goals as the new CEO this is what he had to say:

“I will be focusing on growing the developer ecosystem through investment, marketing and developer support and bridging the gap between Web 2.0 and 3.0. I’ll be leading the Polygon Studios organization across gaming, entertainment, fashion, news, sports and more.”

Polygon making moves

In the last year Polygon has picked up some other major partnerships that has helped it skyrocket 4,100% since this time last year, even as it is down from recent highs.

This is some great news for Polygon to start off 2022 and we will see what comes of it in the coming months. As NFT gaming and the metaverse continue to become more popular by the day, this could be perfect timing for Polygon to take even more market share.
