Pessimistic proofs: ZK tech’s next step or mere cynicism?

Polygon Labs introduces pessimistic proofs via SP1 zkVM, enhancing cross-chain security and simplifying ZK development.

Polygon Labs have collaboratively developed a new type of zero-knowledge (ZK) proof known as a pessimistic proof.

Developed using SP1 — a ZK virtual machine (zkVM) created by Succinct Labs — pessimistic proofs will ensure no single chain can compromise the deposits of others in the AggLayer network.

Speaking to Cointelegraph, a Polygon spokesperson elaborated on how SP1’s Pessimistic proofs will prevent bad actors from compromising the system.
