Polygon Launches zkEVM Bridge for Future of Blockchain Scaling

Polygon has announced the launch of its zkEVM bridge, offering users the same level of security, functionality, and user experience as its PoS bridge. This move makes it easier for users to get started with the future of blockchain scaling.

The Polygon Bridge for zkEVM comes with several UX improvements that incorporate feedback from the community. These include a more visible progress bar, transaction history, recent transaction panel with color-coded completion status, time estimates for pending transactions, and the ability to filter.

According to Polygon, bridges powered by zero knowledge technology are better than those powered by other technology because they are governed entirely by smart contracts, ensuring Ethereum’s security.

Polygon’s zkEVM bridge offers fast finality, allowing users to transact within the rollup with fast finality. Users can usually claim their funds on the Ethereum mainnet in 30-60 minutes, barring anomalous network conditions.

Most popular assets, including ERC-20 tokens and the extended features of ERC-777 tokens, are supported on Polygon’s zkEVM bridge. Once a user triggers the bridging transaction, the token being bridged will automatically be mapped, making it more user-friendly.

After months of testing, Polygon zkEVM launched on March 27 as Mainnet Beta, making it permissionless, open source, and public, allowing anyone to use it to transact and build. Many top-tier teams are already building on the Mainnet Beta, including Lens, Balancer, Midnight Society, Oath of Peak, ANKR, Alchemy, Sequence, and The Graph.

The Polygon ecosystem aims to build an equitable future for all through the mass adoption of Web3. To stay up-to-date with the latest developments, readers can tune into the Polygon Labs Blog and social channels.
