Anurag Arjun, Chief Product Officer of Polygon Labs, has decided to step down and create a separate project based on the Avail scaling solution.
The platform launched a testnet in 2022 with the initiative to act as a data accessibility layer for zero-knowledge evidence-based solutions.
The company has stated that this separation will evolve into a decentralized organization and the first priority is to ensure a smooth transition from Polygon.
To this end, Arjun will create a non-profit Avail Foundation which will eventually be taken over by the community, and part of the development team will move to the new organization.
Sandeep Nailwal, co-founder of Polygon, has stated that he has a great relationship with Arjun and might invest in the new venture.
