What Is a zkEVM?

Zero-knowledge (ZK) tech is one of the most prominent and promising paths to scaling Ethereum. One popular use of ZK proofs to scale Ethereum is what’s known as a zkEVM (zero-knowledge Ethereum Virtual Machine). So what is a zkEVM, and how does it help us make Ethereum cheaper and more efficient to use? Understanding the […]

The Future is Now for Ethereum Scaling: Introducing Polygon zkEVM

We all know that Ethereum needs to scale, and we at Polygon believe that zero-knowledge (ZK) tech is the most promising pathway to get there. But that path has often seemed as if it would be long and winding. The conventional wisdom has been that the crypto space would need many years to develop Layer […]

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 […]
