Polygon Labs wants to help convert EVM blockchains into validiums via 'type 1 prover'

Last week, Polygon introduced the “type 1 prover”— a technology that can facilitate EVM-compatible chains to adopt zero-knowledge proofs. The type 1 prover is expected to be released later this year. It will be incorporated into Polygon’s CDK (software stack), marking an advancement over the project’s previous type 2 proving mechanism, which lacked compatibility with other EVM chains. “The type-1 prover can generate zero-knowledge proofs for any EVM chain without necessitating hard forks or adjustments to existing clients,” Brendan Farmer, …
