The developers say various crypto providers will soon add support for zkSync 2.0, including the following ones:
Matter Labs says the current version of the zkSync 2.0 provides developers with a design space to "experiment with applications not possible on Ethereum today."
The launch follows a recent $450 million funding round in Polygon, an eponymous firm behind a scaling solution for the Ethereum network. The firm said it will use the proceeds to continue investing in ZK technology that is expected to be "key to onboarding the next billion users to Web3." As part of that mission, the team has already committed $1 billion to ZK-related efforts.
