Polygon (MATIC) zkEVM News: With the upcoming launch of the Polygon zkEVM rollup, MATIC is all set to break a new record. The cryptocurrency stands as the highest individual gainer among major coins since the beginning of 2023. The rollup could potentially turn out to be a game changer for the token as the zkEVM addition would significantly reduce costs and improve security. And clearly, the announcement of date for the rollup to go live sounded a bullish pattern for the traders.

What Is the MATIC zkEVM Rollup?
zkEVM is an acronym for zero knowledge Etherem Virtual Machine (zkEVM). At the core of it, the rollup will bring in the off-chain computational capacity with zero knowledge proof concept and validate the data on the EVM. This will essentially bring down the storage and computational costs that are otherwise done on-chain. Also, the zero knowledge method of approving transactions without going through the churn of revealing the details. Hence, the existing Polygon network will be able to perform smart contracts and developer activities in the new protocol without any hassles, by virtue of zkEVM’s compatibility.
MATIC/BTC To All Time Highs?
Thanks to the huge rise in MATIC price in recent times, its pairing with Bitcoin shot up to near its all time high level. While BTC price itself rose significantly since the beginning of January 2023, MATIC price has doubled in the same period. Hence, the MATIC/BTC pairing is on the verge of its peak of $0.000064 maintained in November 2022 before the FTX collapse. As of writing, Polygon price stands at $1.52, up 3.518% in the last 24 hours.
