What is Polyhedra Network?

Polyhedra Network is built as an Infrastructure for Web3 Interoperability. It is a project that supports both scalability powers and the privileges of privacy in the web3 space and is working on the foundation of zero-knowledge proof systems. This new project has received backing from Binance Labs and raised around 10 million dollars in their funding round from many firms, which has given Polyhedra a lot of credibility. Their zkBridge testament recently went live and joined the suite of their other products like ZK DID, ZK NFT, and the Launchpad. Their technology is both trust-minimized and highly efficient which makes it a great option for web3 functions like transferring of multiple assets, communication of messages, and the sharing of data. Apart from Binance Labs, they have also received partnerships and support from renowned names in the crypto circuit, to name a few:

  • Polychain Capital
  • DHVC
  • Kucoin Ventures
  • Foresight
  • Unstoppable Domains
  • Gameta
  • Dappos
  • Animoca Brands
