Embracing the Future of Ethereum Scaling

Polygon zkEVM is a Layer Two (L2) scaling solution for Ethereum, harnessing the power of zero-knowledge (ZK) proofs while maintaining compatibility with the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM). This technology enhances the functionality of Ethereum smart contracts and dApps, reducing gas costs and increasing network throughput. By seamlessly deploying existing contracts and offering lower transaction fees, Polygon zkEVM has gained substantial traction, with over $28M in TVL since its beta mainnet launch on March 27, 2023. The Polygon network is one of the most widely adopted scaling solutions within the Ethereum ecosystem, hosting over 3,000 applications, processing one billion+ transactions, serving 100 million+ unique user addresses, and securing assets worth ~$5 billion.

Introducing v3 Swap and Liquidity Provision on Polygon zkEVM

PancakeSwap v3 on Polygon zkEVM introduces Swap and Liquidity Provision functionalities, allowing users to seamlessly trade their favorite tokens and participate in liquidity provision directly on our platform. Whether you're a trader looking to swap tokens quickly or a liquidity provider seeking passive income, PancakeSwap v3 on Polygon zkEVM offers a frictionless experience.


Capital efficiency is a crucial focus of PancakeSwap v3, enabling liquidity providers to concentrate their capital within specific price ranges where most trading occurs. Capital efficiency allows liquidity providers to maximize their earnings by making their assets work harder for them. With PancakeSwap v3, liquidity providers can achieve a capital multiplier of up to 4000x.

V3 Trading Fee Tiers Breakdown


Traders also benefit from PancakeSwap v3's enhanced features on Polygon zkEVM. The introduction of multi-tier fees ensures that traders enjoy the lowest trading fees in the industry. With four fee tiers ranging from 0.01% to 1%, traders can choose the fee tier that aligns best with their trading preferences and the liquidity pool they are trading in. Capital-efficient trading and lower slippage further enhance the trading experience on PancakeSwap v3.
