While blockchain has proved to be a potentially useful technology, one issue it still battles with is interoperability. Fortunately, several blockchain firms have been working hard to tackle this issue. One of them, Poly network has now disclosed its latest move so far toward achieving this goal.
Earlier today, Poly Network, announced expanded support for the layer 2 scaling solution ZKSync era which enables the bridging of assets and passing (lasS) of messages. Poly Network is a cross-chain protocol aimed at blockchain interoperability solutions.
The protocol is one of the leading solutions focused on interoperability. Its cross-chain communication and asset management protocols is widely used by more than 130 decentralized applications (dApps) and 35 blockchain networks such as Ethereum, Optimism, Aptos, and Arbitrum, among others.
Integration And Benefits
Though both Poly Network and ZKSync are looking to work together to achieve one goal which is blockchain interoperability, the integration comes with some benefits which favor both parties. So far, ZKSync users can now have access to transferring assets across different blockchains in a “trustless and decentralized manner,” according to the announcement.
Notably, with the integration enabling support for cross-chain interactions, users can not only transfer assets across different blockchains but also send messages across multiple blockchains. Currently, BNB Chain, Polygon, Ethereum, and other popular blockchains are supported.
According to the announcement, Poly Network is looking to expand to more blockchains in the future so as to create a more connected and seamless experience for users in Web3.
Overall, this latest integration marks a significant achievement for Poly Network and ZKSync and the whole Web3 community in general as this is a step forward in tackling interoperability issues in the ecosystem.
