Panther Protocol has partnered with the leading Layer 2 scaling solution Polygon (formerly Matic). As per the tweet, Polygon would help projects in Panther’s ecosystem to enhance the privacy features that empower end-users. Collaboratively, the teams will work in providing a clear path for institutions and fintechs into private and compliant DeFi.
Panther is an end-to-end privacy protocol, which connects blockchains to reinstate privacy in DeFi and Web3. It provides the zkSNARK technology for users to mint fully collateralized, privacy-enhancing, zero-knowledge assets (zAssets). Hence, this coalition helps to integrate Panther MVP on Polygon while the $ZKP token will be launched on Ethereum. Consequently, this eases in utilizing Polygon’s interoperable capabilities to bridge tokens over.
We announced our partnership with Polygon yesterday. Panther is building its MVP on the Layer-2 scaling solution referred to as “the Ethereum’s internet of blockchains.”
