  • Polygon will be launching its zkEVM Mainnet Beta on March 27th, 2023.
  • A zk-Rollup is a layer 2 construction on top of Ethereum that solves its scalability problem through mass transfer processing rolled into a single transaction.
  • Developers can copy-pasta their code onto Polygon’s zkEVM.
  • Secure scalability, cheaper transaction costs, faster finality and capital efficiency.
  • zkEVM uses Proof-of-Efficiency, not Proof-of-Stake
  • The MATIC staking balance has grown 36.6% YoY, staking wallets are up ~ 420% YoY.
  • How to connect to the Polygon zkEVM
