QuickNode’s integration with Polygon zkEVM marks the beginning of a new phase for Ethereum scaling, making it the go-to solution for developers looking to leverage the benefits of Ethereum’s ecosystem with lower costs and higher throughput.
March 27, 2023 — QuickNode, the leading end-to-end blockchain development platform, announces the expansion of its ecosystem with the launch of its collaboration with Polygon zero-knowledge Ethereum Virtual Machine (zkEVM) on its platform. QuickNode’s mission is to support and service the developer community by providing the best tools and the most reliable blockchain development platform. By adding Polygon zkEVM to its ecosystem, QuickNode will give developers the fast speed, low transaction fees, and security they need with the power of ZK-proofs, which reduce transaction fees and increase throughput while inheriting the security of Ethereum layer 1.
Mihailo Bjelic, co-founder of Polygon Labs, said:
“The holy grail of Web3 infrastructure should have three major properties: scalability, security and Ethereum compatibility. Until now, it has not been practically possible to offer all these properties at once. Polygon zkEVM is a breakthrough technology that finally achieves that, thus opening a new chapter of mass adoption,” he added.
Polygon zkEVM is a layer-2 blockchain scaling solution for the Ethereum network that combines ZK-proofs with Optimistic Rollups, enabling faster, cheaper transactions. QuickNode is thrilled to support Polygon zkEVM mainnet beta as a launch partner, providing developers and users with the speed and throughput capabilities to scale decentralized applications (DApps) and smart contracts exponentially. With Polygon zkEVM, the future of Web3 and widespread adoption will be more easily realized by reducing the cost and scaling barriers of Ethereum layer 1.
Dmitry Shklovsky, QuickNode co-founder and CEO, said:
“Polygon zkEVM represents a major breakthrough in Ethereum scaling, and QuickNode is thrilled to support this innovative, cutting-edge technology. By providing fast, reliable access to the Polygon zkEVM, we’re empowering the world’s most vibrant blockchain developer community to further innovate and build on the future of Web3.”
David Schwartz, co-founder of Polygon Labs, said:
“We are excited to partner with QuickNode on the launch and ongoing support of Polygon zkEVM, a revolutionary step in Ethereum scaling. QuickNode’s commitment to providing reliable and fast infrastructure empowers the developer community to fully harness the potential of Polygon zkEVM, paving the way for groundbreaking DApps and Web3 experiences. Together, we’re unlocking new opportunities and fostering innovation in the vibrant Polygon ecosystem.”
The main benefits of Polygon zkEVM include scalability, lower gas fees, decentralization and interoperability. Polygon zkEVM bundles many transactions together, increasing throughput for faster, cheaper transactions. The mainnet beta for Polygon zkEVM allows users to perform transactions with drastically lower gas fees than on-chain transactions. Users can expect the same level of decentralization as the main Ethereum chain, and developers can easily port DApps and smart contracts to the Polygon zkEVM due to its interoperability with the main Ethereum chain.
QuickNode’s integration with Polygon zkEVM marks the beginning of a new era for Ethereum scaling, making it the go-to solution for developers looking to leverage the benefits of Ethereum’s ecosystem with lower costs and higher throughput. QuickNode remains committed to providing world-class infrastructure that enables developers to focus on building the DApps of the future.
QuickNode is building infrastructure to support the future of Web3. Since 2017, it has worked with hundreds of developers and companies, helping scale DApps and providing high-performance access to 17+ blockchains.
