Polygon unveils architectural plans for ‘Polygon 2.0,’ featuring an aggregator bridge

The forthcoming multichain system proposed by Polygon Labs, called Polygon 2.0, aims to create a web of interconnected networks using Ethereum as the connecting layer.

Polygon 2.0 will consist of four layers: the staking layer, the interoperability layer, the execution layer, and the proving layer.

The staking layer will be the foundation of the project, with a validator manager contract on Ethereum and a chain manager contract for each Polygon chain.

The interoperability layer will connect each Polygon chain through bridges secured by zero-knowledge proofs.

An aggregator in the interoperability layer will combine zero-knowledge proofs from each bridge into one proof, enabling seamless bridge transactions and reducing Ethereum gas consumption.

The execution layer will rely on the Erigon Ethereum client, while the proving layer will standardize the zero-knowledge proof process across all Polygon chains.

Further details about each layer will be provided in the future.

Other networks, such as zkSync Era and Optimism, are also working on expanding into multichain ecosystems.
