PIL ZK Tooling is Now Open-Source

Polygon’s zero-knowledge (ZK) tech teams have recently unveiled the cutting-edge Polygon zkEVM, as well as open-source licensing for the revolutionary Plonky2 proving system. We are excited to announce yet another milestone: open-source licensing for our PIL toolkit.  We will be licensing the PIL toolkit jointly under the Apache2 and MIT licenses. Developers around the world … Read more

Plonky2 is Now Open-Source

Earlier this year, Polygon announced Plonky2, a zero-knowledge proving system that represents a major breakthrough for ZK tech. Plonky2 offers two main benefits: incredibly fast proofs and extremely efficient recursive proofs. It’s a huge leap forward for the ZK space, and we’ve been blown away by the response from the developer community: people want to … Read more

ZKVerse: Polygon Zero Roundup

Sometimes it feels like crypto moves a little too fast. There are lots of talks and events during which the space’s key players and teams unveil new innovations or perspectives. Instead of being written down, too much of this important information gets scattered across the crypto chatterverse. It can be hard to keep track of … Read more

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 … Read more
