- Astar Network partners with Polygon Labs to introduce Astar zkEVM, a revolutionary component bridging centralized and decentralized finance.
- Astar Network, built on Polkadot, offers a secure and scalable environment for DApp and service development.
- zkEVM combines zk-rollups and Ethereum’s EVM, enhancing security and scalability while simplifying blockchain integration, with a testnet going live in Q4.
As the bridge between centralized and decentralized finance continues to be bridged, Astar Network and Polygon Labs have announced their collaboration. The launch of Astar zkEVM is expected to be a core component of this collaboration. Let’s dive into the details.
Astar Network is a blockchain platform that aims to revolutionize the decentralized web. The platform aims to do so by offering a comprehensive solution for developers to create, manage, and deploy decentralized applications (DApps) and services. Built on the Polkadot ecosystem, Astar Network provides a secure, scalable, and interoperable environment for blockchain development.
Their collaboration with Polygon Labs, a leader in Ethereum Scaling solutions, is one of a kind. The goal of this collaboration is to enhance security and streamline integrations to create more accessible blockchain experiences.
zkEVM combines zk-rollups and Ethereum’s EVM. It maintains trustlessness and enhances security while offering scalability and portability for existing EVM dApps. With this innovation, the Astar Tech Stack improves its potential to onboard enterprise partners and build use cases spanning from Japan to the global market.
The next step in this development is that the testnet is going live in Q4, and there is currently a pending public release. All in all, the role of Astar Supernova and zkEVM is going to be crucial in Web3 adoption.
