ZK and the Future of Ethereum Scaling

Arbitrum recently released a great post arguing that Optimistic Rollups (OR) represent the future of Ethereum, since they offer inherent scalability and cost advantages over ZK Rollups (ZKR). Their piece is well-written and worth reading. In the spirit of friendly debate, we’d like to present a different perspective. Polygon has committed $1 billion to ZK […]

Introducing Plonky2

Polygon Zero’s mission is simple: to use zero-knowledge proofs to scale Ethereum to a billion users, without compromising decentralization or security. Achieving this requires fast and efficient proof systems. Today, we’re excited to share Plonky2, a major milestone for zero-knowledge cryptography. Plonky2 is a recursive SNARK that is 100x faster than existing alternatives and natively […]

A Gentle Introduction to Zero Knowledge Proofs

Welcome to “Polygon ZK” – a content series dedicated to exploring the world of Zero Knowledge (ZK) proofs. This technology has recently emerged as one of the key solutions that will allow the Ethereum network to accommodate its next billion users. Unfortunately, ZK is as promising as it is arcane. In this blog series, we […]
