The Polygon Hermez zk-rollup is a layer 2 built on top of Ethereum that solves scalability issues through mass transfer processing rolled into a single transaction. ZKPs are used to present and publicly record the validity and correctness of the rolled transfers processed on the Ethereum blockchain. By storing just the proof and the compressed data of a batch of transfers, the efficiency and the throughput of the network is multiplied.
