What Happened on Mar. 31st | Difference between Polygon zkEVM and zkSync Era
According to research by Delphi, the main difference between Polygon zkEVM and zkSync Era is that Polygon announced EVM-equivalent rollup, while zkSync announced EVM-compatible rollup.
EVM-equivalent rollups have less friction than EVM-compatible. This allows existing EVM-compatible smart contracts to work on Polygon zkEVM without changing languages or tooling, whereas zkSync Era requires projects to be compiled using its LLVM-based compiler. While such an implementation requires more technical tooling for apps, it enables zkSync Era to offer a range of features including native account abstraction, hyperchains, and data compression.
