Polygon co-founder Jordi Baylina predicts that in 2024, Polygon’s various Ethereum layer 2 scaling networks will be amalgamated into its “Polygon 2.0” cross-chain coordination protocol. This move aims to unify the networks through the implementation of zero-knowledge proofs (ZK-proofs), allowing for shared liquidity and composability between different networks.

**Polygon 2.0 – 2024 to Witness Unified ZK-powered L2 Chains**
Polygon co-founder Jordi Baylina anticipates that 2024 will mark the culmination of Polygon’s diverse Ethereum layer 2 scaling networks, forming the “Polygon 2.0” cross-chain coordination protocol. Speaking exclusively to Cointelegraph, Baylina highlighted that the upcoming year will serve as a litmus test for the Polygon ecosystem’s networks as they integrate and scale through the adoption of zero-knowledge proofs (ZK-proofs).

Baylina explained that the evolution to Polygon 2.0 will involve merging the various protocols within the Polygon ecosystem using ZK-proof technology, resulting in “continuous, unbounded blockspace.” This move follows Polygon’s unveiling of Polygon 2.0 in June 2023, which outlined plans for a scaling ecosystem comprising four protocol layers – staking, interop, execution, and proving layers.

2023 has been a pivotal year for Polygon as it witnessed the release of several products aimed at enhancing its scaling protocol and facilitating the development of decentralized applications (DApps) and interoperable services. The release of Polygon’s open-source zkEVM mainnet beta in March 2023 and the introduction of the Chain Development Kit (CDK) in September 2023 have been significant milestones for the platform.

**Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)**

**Q: What is the significance of Polygon 2.0?**
A: Polygon 2.0 aims to unify Polygon’s various Ethereum layer 2 scaling networks into a cross-chain coordination protocol, facilitating shared liquidity and composability between different networks using zero-knowledge proofs (ZK-proofs).

**Q: What developments have taken place in 2023 for Polygon?**
A: In 2023, Polygon released its open-source zkEVM mainnet beta and the Chain Development Kit (CDK), both of which significantly contribute to the platform’s scaling and development capabilities.

**Q: How will the transition to Polygon 2.0 impact the ecosystem?**
A: The transition to Polygon 2.0, particularly the adoption of ZK-proof technology, is expected to expedite the scaling of the network and enable ecosystem protocols to become interconnected.
