What is an Emergency State, and when is it triggered?

Created by Deepanshu Rathor, Modified on Mon, 19 Feb 2024 at 04:20 PM by Deepanshu Rathor

If the so-called Emergency State is triggered, functionalities such as the sequencing of batches, verifying of batches, and forced batches cannot happen. The Emergency State can be activated by a smart contract owner, or, in the case of Polygon zkEVM by a Security Council multisig. 

This means that the Security Council can activate the Emergency State in a situation where the pending state timeout has been exceeded, or a threatening vulnerability occurs.
