Polygon launched Polygon Hermes, their layer-2 zkEVM network. Polygon Launches Final Mainnet for zkEVM Solution to Scale Ethereum.
The zkEVM offers increased security and privacy. It lets users carry out smart contracts without disclosing the specifics of the transaction, guaranteeing the privacy of sensitive data.
For decentralized applications created on the Ethereum network, this network intends to offer fast, affordable, and secure transactions.
To allow users to transfer assets and data across the two networks without difficulty, Polygon Hermes will also offer a bridge to the Ethereum main net.
The co-founder of the Ethereum blockchain, Vitalik Buterin, started the first transaction on the new zkEVM as part of the unveiling event.
