- The main net beta of Polygon zkEVM was first launched on March 27
- This Bridge will allow users to withdraw funds from the Ethereum main net in just 30-60 minutes while expanding support for ERC-20 and ERC-777 tokens.
- Along with many improvements, the Polygon Bridge for zkEVM closely resembles the user experience of the Polygon PoS Bridge.
Zero-knowledge technology powers the Polygon Bridge, ensuring security. Assets such as ERC-20 tokens and the extended features of ERC-777 tokens can also be supported. Once a user triggers the bridging transaction, the token being bridged will automatically be mapped. This is unique because unlike other chains that require users to map tokens before bridging, Polygon Bridge is a lot more efficient and doesn’t take hours or days to do so.
