What Happened on Mar. 28th | The Role of $MATIC token in Polygon zkEVM
Polygon zkEVM is a Layer 2 scaling solution for Ethereum that leverages the scaling power of zero-knowledge proofs while maintaining Ethereum compatibility. Developers and users on Polygon zkEVM can use the same code, tooling, apps, etc that they use on Ethereum, but with much higher throughput and lower fees.
In the current Polygon PoS sidechain, the $MATIC token is used for the gas fee. However, according to the official documentation, ETH will be used for gas fees in Polygon zkEVM. It is expected that MATIC will be used for staking and governance in Polygon zkEVM in the future, but there is no detailed plan revealed by the team. Therefore, up to this point, the launch of Polygon zkEVM has nothing to do with the $MATIC token.
