Let’s dive in.
Polygon On-Chain Data Highlights

Web3: Made in India Crosses the Finish Line at Polygon Connect on Dec.1
Polygon’s Web3: Made in India roadshow crosses the finish line with Polygon Connect India in Bangalore on Dec. 1. As we reflect on our month-long journey, the companions we met and knowledge gained, it’s also an opportunity to peer into the future.
On the eve of ETHIndia, Polygon Connect is the last chance in Polygon’s tour across the subcontinent to celebrate developers, creators, and entrepreneurs who have made Web3 possible. Our Web3: Made in India Tour took us to Guild events in Kochi, Jaipur, and Hyderabad, with stops in the next two weeks in Ahmedabad, Lucknow, Mumbai, and Delhi.
Polygon zkEVM Arrives at ETH India
Next month, Polygon zkEVM will be center stage at ETH India and Polygon Connect, our dev-driven sessions preceding the conference. Polygon co-founder David Schwartz will lead several discussions on Polygon zkEVM, including “zkEVM & Polygon ID: A Major Milestone in Ethereum,” on the main stage, and “zkEVM: The New Ethereum Dev Frontier,” on the side stage. In anticipation, we wanted to update you on the progress of the public testnet, recent milestones, and where we go from here.
There’s still time to register for Polygon Connect India. But if you can’t attend, join the public testnet. Deploying smart contracts verified with Zero Knowledge (ZK) is a lot easier than you think.
Polygon Sponsors Startup Weekend Global 2022
Even the most accomplished startups need guidance, whether that’s learning the ropes of the industry when you’re just starting out, or finding the best talent for your team, or approaching problems with creative solutions.
That’s why Polygon has become a global sponsor of Techstars Startup Weekend Global 2022!
We want to help the best minds of this generation make the economies of tomorrow. From Dec. 9 – March 4, startups looking for more support with their blockchain businesses will dive deep into the metaverse and find mentorship, learn to build together, and pitch funders during one of the world’s most innovative, dizzying Web3 hackathons.
