The partnership between Immutable and Polygon promises to significantly impact the web3 gaming industry, with exciting developments anticipated in the coming months. The alliance aims to popularize web3 and bring digital ownership to millions globally by combining Polygon’s advanced zero-knowledge technology and Immutable’s gaming expertise.
This collaboration offers numerous benefits for the Immutable community. Players can expect a range of top-notch web3 games, while builders gain access to the first gaming platform with a zero-knowledge scaling solution for the Ethereum community.
Developers can now seamlessly migrate games and smart contracts from Ethereum, Polygon, and other EVM-compatible platforms into Immutable’s product suite. Immutable zkEVM helps game developers safeguard and grow their revenue through enforceable royalty fees and empowers communities with asset ownership.
Partnership between Immutable and Polygon
The partnership revolves around Immutable zkEVM, an EVM-compatible zk-rollup powered by Polygon technology and backed by the Immutable platform. Immutable zkEVM aims to streamline the development of web3-enabled games, catering to both established game studios and indie developers.
The launch of Immutable zkEVM will offer a second scaling solution for games building on Immutable, in addition to Immutable X, powered by Starkware. Developers can access documentation and start integrating with Immutable zkEVM.
zkEVM, an EVM-compatible virtual machine, employs zero-knowledge proofs to verify and execute smart contracts. This technology significantly boosts transaction speeds and cuts gas fees while maintaining Ethereum blockchain security.
What is Polygon
Polygon has made a name for itself in the web3 arena, with projects like Aave, Uniswap, and OpenSea adopting its Web3 scaling solutions. The platform boasts 220.8 million unique addresses, 1.18 million created smart contracts, and 2.48 billion processed transactions.
