Polygon is the leading platform for Ethereum scaling and infrastructure development. Its growing suite of products offers developers easy access to all major scaling and infrastructure solutions: L2 solutions (ZK Rollups and Optimistic Rollups), sidechains, hybrid solutions, stand-alone and enterprise chains, data availability solutions, and more. Polygon’s scaling solutions have seen widespread adoption with 18000+ applications hosted, 1B+ total transactions processed, ~100M+ unique user addresses, and $5B+ in assets secured.
ZM builders, we’re challenging you to hack with Polygon solutions to solve real-world problems.
The Polygon zkEVM launched earlier this year, it's grown to hold a TVL of $50 million and continues to attract major protocols. For this challenge, we want to see your most innovative use of the Polygon zkEVM, this is an open challenge that will see the most innovative and deserving protocols, with killer UX carry the day!
Check out these resources to get you started.
At the heart of Polygon’s new 2.0 architecture lies the LxLy bridge. The Polygon zkEVM LxLy Bridge facilitates cross-chain communication across Polygon chains. We’re challenging you to create and extend the LxLy sample implementations and add support for different types of cross-chain messaging and assets transfer of custom ERC-20s and any other EIP/ERC you see fit such as ERC1155 etc. Check out the existing code samples and open a PR with your own contribution that facilities cross-chain communication.
Cross-Chain ideas from the Polygon zkEVM team
Self-Sovereign Identity is the future. Use Polygon ID to represent identity-based information as verifiable credentials in your dapp so your users can prove access rights to dapp features without giving up their private data. Polygon ID is also excited to announce a brand new partnership with Dock.io that will allow you to securely extend the privacy of your Lens profile using Verifiable Credentials. Using Dock's REST API credentials can be issued a few API calls. Along with issuing credentials application developers can use the API to manage issuer profiles and create and import data schemas. Dock's tooling also supports non-developers through it's no-code solution Dock Certs which provides the same functionality via a web interface.
This demo shows you how to set up your Dock.io account and begin to issue VCs. Your task is to now leverage VCs to provide additional layers of privacy and security to your Lens Dapp.

Ideas from the Polygon ID team:
Create a permissionless public good dapp with an app-like UX by sponsoring your users’ gas fees using gasless transactions or by batching transactions into a single transaction. Learn more by reading up on ERC-4337: Account Abstraction and Gasless transactions.
Account Abstraction SDKs
In your project’s README, explain the UX optimization strategies you chose and link to relevant sections of code with your account abstraction implementation.
