Bring Ethereum to everyone

Polygon zkEVM Beta is the leading ZK scaling solution that is equivalent to Ethereum Virtual Machine: The vast majority of existing smart contracts, developer tools and wallets work seamlessly.

Ethereum scalability with zkEVM performance and security


Low cost

  • Polygon zkEVM harnesses the power of ZK proofs to reduce transaction cost.
  • zkSNARK footprint size in L1 for user cost optimization
  • Lowers total cost of usage for end users for a better user experience

High performance

  • Fast network finality with frequent validity proofs
  • Use of Polygon Zero technology, the fastest ZK proof in the world
  • Recursive STARK for extreme scalability
  • Developers can create different types of dApps for a variety of user experiences

EVM equivalence

  • Deployment onto EVM without changes in code
  • The vast majority of existing smart contracts, developer tools and wallets work seamlessly.
  • Allows developers to focus on improving code rather than re-writing it


  • Ethereum security inherited in L2 with the additional benefit of L2 batching for scaling
  • ZK proofs ensure transaction validity and safeguards user funds
  • Assurance that information stored cannot be changed or corrupted
