Quick Take

  • Polygon also recently launched Polygon Miden, the first open-sourced STARK-based rollup framework
  • Polygon has previously started exploring the ZK-rollup space, with its acquisition of Hermez Network and partnership with EY for Polygon Nightfall
  • Polygon’s PoS chain has seen increased adoption but this success may not translate directly for their suite of ZK solutions by the time they are production-ready
