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
- 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
- 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
- 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
