ZK White Paper: Efficient ZK Proofs for Keccak

By Angus Gruen This post is part of a series of technical papers designed to better communicate to the Ethereum community the work of Polygon’s zero-knowledge (ZK) teams. We hope that everyone who’s interested in the inner workings of Polygon’s ZK projects, Ethereum itself, and cryptographic engineering in general will be able to learn something … Read more

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

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 … 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

Polygon ID Integrates Verite Decentralized Identity Solution

Polygon ID, the self-sovereign, decentralized and private way of creating digital credentials in Web3, is incorporating the Verite standards to put people and institutions firmly in control of their identities in the next iteration of the Internet. As part of that mission, Polygon is partnering with Centre, the consortium serving as a network governing and … Read more

Introducing Polygon ID, Zero-Knowledge Identity for Web3

At Polygon, we believe that putting people firmly in control of their digital identities is at the core of Web3’s promise to empower users over networks. We have been working behind the scenes to fulfill this promise and today are proud to introduce Polygon ID, the self-sovereign, decentralized and private identity for the next iteration … Read more
