Last month, Polygon Labs indicated that the beta version would be released on March 27, 2023. The deadline has been met.
The once distant dream of an EVM-equivalent zkEVM has now arrived and is ready for everyone to use: Polygon zkEVM is the build-it-all machine that will take Ethereum to places no one could have imagined before,” the company wrote in a blog post, noting that Vitalik Buterin had made the first transaction on layer2.
Polygon zkEVM is completely open sourceaccording to the announcement.
Today, Polygon Labs is announcing that Polygon zkEVM is fully open-source. Every single component is licensed with AGPL v3, including the zkProver, which is where all of the ZK magic happens 🪄
