Polygon On-Chain Data Highlights
It’s Not a Race: Auditing Polygon zkEVM
Last month, Polygon collaborated with the Ethereum Foundation and other teams on a series of discussions about Zero Knowledge. There, a member of the Ethereum Foundation’s Privacy and Scaling Explorations team, described the task of an audit—any audit—as an attempt to verify the strongest explicit and implicit claim made by any given technology.
With that in mind, this audit is meant to verify the claim that Polygon zkEVM can only generate valid state transitions, and that it does so in a Zero Knowledge, non-interactive environment. The auditors of Polygon zkEVM are attempting to verify this claim across two vectors: correctness and soundness.
Polygon Welcomes Africa’s Web3 Social Startup Gamic
Gamic, a Nigeria-based Web3 social communications platform, is coming to the Polygon network to help bring blockchain-powered opportunities to millions in Africa and beyond.
Gamic app is a chat platform that combines a wallet experience with advanced community management tools. The app’s beta version will be released on Dec. 20 and will feature a Web3 gaming toolset offering financial and operational solutions for gamers, guilds, and eSports teams. At launch, new users can participate in a joint Polygon-Gamic NFT airdrop.
The Polygon network exists today because of the Polygon community. The developers, builders, creators, enthusiasts and fans who are Polygon’s biggest advocates and most helpful supporters have shaped Polygon into what it is today. As the community becomes more self-sustaining, our duty at the Polygon companies is to continuously nurture and develop the most engaged towards decentralization by collectively building, developing, adopting, and sharing best practices across Web3 so that anyone can realize their vision of the future.
