Polygon Introduces Immutable zkEVM, the Home of Gaming in Web3
Immutable and Polygon Labs recently announced a partnership to design a gaming blockchain. The network will use zero-knowledge technology to boost decentralized game development.
The blockchain will also bring Web3 closer to mainstream adoption. The Immutable zkEVM, powered by Polygon, is ready to be launched before 2023 ends. The platforms have invited developers to access the early documentation for quick integration.
While developing on Immutable zkEVM, developers can use Immutable to design Web3-based games. In a quick, easy, and risk-free environment, developers will be able to assist independent users and large studios alike.
Terming themselves the “undisputed champions of gaming on Ethereum,” Delphi Digital, Immutable, and Polygon Labs are collaborating to assist Web3. According to Delphi Digital, over 50% of the blockchain activity in 2022 emerged from game titles. Thus, over three-quarters of game developers will use Web3 games in the coming time.
With this partnership, two well-known ventures are simplifying the decisions for working on Web3 games. They offer the quickest way to go from idea to release, as well as the largest and most fluid ecosystem for users.
This announcement has only come a week before the Polygon zkEVM’s release to the mainnet beta. zkEVM technology is regarded as the Holy Grail of Ethereum scaling due to its ability to increase transaction speed and reduce prohibitive fees.
At the same time, it remains compatible with Ethereum while maintaining security. Its scaling prospects can unlock several use cases that were unattainable until now. It includes a scope for multiplayer blockchain games.
The president of Polygon Labs, Ryan Wyatt, has praised the collaboration. According to Ryan, a collaboration with Immutable is massive for helping developers and assisting users to completely own their in-game items.
Given the success that Polygon and Immutable have garnered in the market, their partnership is expected to be a major hit.
