Why don't we have bridge from polygon to polygon zkevm?

Hey Devs,

I was wondering, why there’s no bridge from polygon to polygon zkevm. What’s the motivation behind supporting a bridge from only Ethereum to Zkevm?

I suppose that one of the reason is to attrack money from Etherium instead of Polygon

Both Polygon PoS and Polygon zkEVM ultimately settle to Ethereum, as such there is no “native” connection between the 2 chains without passing through Ethereum first.

There are various 3rd party bridging solutions such as Multichain, Layerswap and Orbiter (to name a few) that offer direct bridging between PoS and zkEVM.

Hmm, this make sense thank you!

Actually there will a be a bring from all chains as well any approved coin’s. There is a use case that is being tested by a blockchain architect but will not be fully rolled out until fully tested as the amount of people on the blockchains has increased and we want to make sure that doesn’t alter any of the of the bridges on a negative level.
