As the blockchain ecosystem expands and evolves, providing seamless integration and scalability with existing technologies becomes critical for adoption and growth. Ankr and Polygon are joining forces to deliver a groundbreaking solution: infrastructure support for the much-anticipated Polygon zkEVM. Now, developers are able to deploy Ethereum-compatible code on Polygon zkEVM without any alterations. This milestone signifies a new phase of frictionless scaling for decentralized applications.

What Is the Importance of Polygon zkEVM?

The launch of Polygon zkEVM marks a significant advancement in blockchain technology, achieving the elusive goal of Ethereum-compatible smart contract scaling without sacrificing performance. When running on Polygon zkEVM, developers are able to leverage Ethereum tooling and Ethereum-compatible code to build applications that function seamlessly with the Polygon network. This dramatically reduces the need for developers to alter their existing codebases or forego familiar tools, making it exponentially easier for new dApps and platforms to scale without encountering the typical challenges associated with integrating alternative scaling solutions. Frictionless scaling has quickly become essential for the further adoption of decentralized technology, as it allows developers to overcome common obstacles associated with integrating Ethereum-based dApps into other platforms.

Access Ankr's Polygon zkEVM Infrastructure Now

Ankr aims to democratize access to blockchain infrastructure, making it simpler for developers and businesses to integrate and deploy applications within the Web3 ecosystem. Through Ankr's suite of ready-made solutions, including custom application programming interfaces (APIs) and remote procedure calls (RPCs), zkEVM developers can access a comprehensive set of tools designed to streamline their work and remove technical barriers.

Ankr’s Polygon zkEVM RPCs connect your project or dApp with the Polygon zkEVM mainnet and testnet. They act as a messenger or blockchain router that relays on-chain information between Polygon zkEVM nodes, dApps, and ultimately end-users so they can execute necessary tasks like transactions, populate wallet balances, fetch ownership information, and much more. Ankr is providing a geo-distributed zkEVM RPC comprised of blockchain nodes running worldwide for incredibly low-latency and reliable connections.

How to Make Your First Call to Polygon zkEVM

You can get started now by heading to Ankr’s RPC Service to make your first call! You can use the endpoints to call the mainnet and testnet using standard EVM JSON RPC methods.

Final Thoughts

With Ankr's infrastructure support for Polygon zkEVM, developers can achieve a more seamless interoperability between Ethereum and Polygon networks. As the blockchain ecosystem continues to mature, more sophisticated solutions will emerge to help a larger part of the ecosystem. The Ankr-Polygon partnership is an important step towards an interconnected and accessible blockchain landscape for all.
