Polygon or MATIC, which is the layer two Ethereum scaling system popular for its transactions as well as low gas costs, has made the announcement of the launch of Plonky2 that is a scaling technology. The zero-knowledge algorithms help in ensuring that all the calculations are correctly done on layer two and return the succinct proof to Ethereum without sending all the data. Zero-knowledge provides easier cumulative evidence verification, substantially speeding up the whole network, rather than every miner or staker validating every broadcast transaction.
Polygon states zero-knowledge recursive proofs, which were theoretical in 2014. In the year 2019, it took around 120 seconds to generate them. In the year 2020, that number dropped. In 2022, Plonky2 is going to generate such evidence in 0,17 seconds. The network developers claim that it is much faster as compared to the existing alternatives. In the future, a family of algorithms like this might enable horizontal or linear scalability of blockchains. Nodes don’t have to store blockchain transaction history for becoming operational, which increases the network capacity. Polygon has pledged a one-billion-dollar investment in the development of unconscious technologies. Polygon joined with Hermez, a zero-knowledge blockchain network, for $ 250 million in MATIC tokens in August. He made an announcement in December of around 250 million MATIC tokens to sign a deal with crypto startup Mir. This firm is known for its PLONK as well as Halo subcategories of zero-knowledge algorithms, the latter of which requires no trust setting at all for proof checking.
MATIC enables decentralized exchanges to provide their users with quick and low-cost trading. Integration with MATIC boosts the performance of these exchanges, making them more reliable and secure. No wonder this Polygon SDK decentralized exchange pushes a price of digital assets that are unquestionably realistic in the near future.
According to this Polyon crypto price prediction, the expected maximum price of MATIC at the end of 2022 could be around $2.06.
