1/5 Proud to present #Plonky2 - the world's fastest ZK scaling technology, built by @0xPolygonZero! πŸ’«

Plonky2 is a recursive SNARK that is 100x faster than existing alternatives and natively compatible with #Ethereum.

A 🧡 on why this is exciting…
2/5 What is #Plonky2?

A natively #Ethereum compatible SNARK that is:

1⃣ Incredibly fast: 0.17 secs to generate recursive proofs on a laptop; by far the fastest implementation available today.
2⃣ Ethereum friendly: Can support #ETH txns & is practical to verify on Ethereum L1.
3/5 πŸš€ Furthermore, the unique features of #Plonky2 open the door for future engineering breakthroughs such as horizontal scaling of blockchain networks, where the throughput increases with every node that gets added to the network.
4/5 πŸ™Œ Thanks to #Plonky2, the #Polygon ecosystem will have the opportunity to build the most performant and scalable L2s.

Let’s bring the world to #Ethereum! πŸ¦„βœ¨

For more details, check out the announcement blog πŸ‘‡ bit.ly/Plonky2
5/5 In case you missed it, #Polygon is on a quest since last year to become the ultimate ZK powerhouse with a strategic focus and $1B funds for ZK-based solutions like @0xPolygonHermez, #PolygonNightfall, @0xPolygonMiden, @0xPolygonZero, and now #Plonky2.

1/8 It's official: #Polygon welcomes @MirProtocol, a groundbreaking ZK startup in a $400M deal!

Mir's amazing team developed the world’s fastest ZK scaling tech; we are joining hands to utilize it and build Polygon Zero - a highly-scalable, Ethereum-compatible ZK Rollup. πŸ¦„πŸ’«
2/8 We recently announced our strategic focus & $1B funds for ZK-based solutions.

Following the announcements of @0xPolygonHermez, #PolygonNightfall & @0xPolygonMiden we are continuing our quest to become the ZK powerhouse with our work on Polygon Zero.

3/8 Polygon Zero is a highly-scalable, Ethereum-compatible ZK Rollup.

Solutions like this can be the Holy Grail of #Ethereum scaling, but they do not exist yet.

One missing piece has been efficient recursive proofs, as recursion enables much better performance. This ends now!

1/4 πŸš€ Polygon values the innovation in the DeFi sector and envisions to bring #DeFiforAll

#Polygon will be hosting a contest to incentivize users in the DeFi space with prizes up to $50K to encourage the continued growth of the ecosystem.

🌐: bit.ly/Polygon-DeFi-C…
2/4 πŸ“… Contest starts from Nov. 22.

Prizes will be distributed over the span of 4 weeks and will include both $MATIC and participating dApps' tokens.

For eligibility, users need to have a #Polygon reputation score over 50.

βœ… Check your score: bit.ly/check-your-sco…
3/4 🀩 Power users who engage with protocols regularly are the key driver of demand for dApps.

#Polygon’s DeFi competition will be another way to incentivize innovation and participation amongst promising projects.

1/7 πŸ’« We are proud to reveal the newest member of the Polygon family - Polygon Miden, an upcoming STARK-based, EVM-compatible Rollup!

The project is led by @bobbinth, former Facebook's lead ZK researcher who led the development of Winterfell.

A 🧡 on why this is exciting...
2/7 We recently announced our strategic focus and $1B fund for ZK-based solutions.

Following the announcements of @0xPolygonHermez (and zkEVM) and Polygon Nightfall, we are continuing our quest to become the ZK powerhouse with our work on Polygon Miden.

3/7 Polygon Miden is an advanced ZK Rollup.

ZK Rollups are very promising, but currently, it's hard for them to support arbitrary logic and transactions, such as those happening on Ethereum.

Polygon Miden will solve this challenge using its core component - Miden VM.

1/9 Another big day for @0xPolygon! πŸ¦„πŸ’«

We have started collaboration with EY, a global professional services and technology firm, on building Ethereum scaling and enterprise solutions!

As part of this collaboration, we will work on Polygon Nightfall, a privacy-focused Rollup!
2/9 EY announced Nightfall in 2019 as a set of protocols for enabling private transactions on Ethereum.

Although it is a great contribution that quickly gained a lot of attention, Nightfall's wider adoption was hindered by congestion and high gas fees on the Ethereum mainnet.
3/9 The EY team started exploring Ethereum scaling solutions to mitigate these challenges and eventually released Nightfall 3 - the latest, scalable version of Nightfall.

Along the way, the EY team started collaborating with Polygon, and the idea Polygon Nightfall was conceived.

1/14 It is a big day for @0xPolygon!

We are announcing a strategic focus on ZK-based scaling solutions and $1B in funding for this effort.

As our first big foray into the exciting world of ZK, we are excited to announce the merger/acquisition of @hermez_network! πŸ”₯

Thread.. 🧡
2/14 Six months ago, when we announced Polygon, there was a pressing need to scale Ethereum and our PoS chain turned out to be the best immediate solution/relief.

Now both Polygon and Ethereum are in a better place, so we believe it is the right time to focus more on innovation.
3/14 We have been actively experimenting with all major scaling technologies since 2017.

Based on what we have learned, we believe that ZK crypto is our best bet to build the solutions we all want and deserve.

Please read our ZK Thesis for more detail.

1/ We are extremely excited to announce Avail - an important component of a completely new way on how future blockchains will work. #Avail is a general-purpose, scalable data availability-focused blockchain targeted for standalone chains, sidechains & off-chain scaling solutions.
2/ #Avail provides a robust data availability layer by using an extremely secure mathematical primitive - DA checks using erasure codes. We use KZG polynomial commitments to create a 2D DA scheme.

🌐 Learn more: bit.ly/2UarzfW
3/ Benefits of #Avail:

- Avoids encoding fraud proofs,
- No honest majority assumptions,
- No reliance on honest full node peers to gain data availability confidence
