⚒ | zkSync Era

zkSync is a Layer-2 scaling solution for Ethereum that aims to address the scalability limitations of the Ethereum blockchain. It uses zero-knowledge proofs (zk-proofs) to enable faster and cheaper transactions off-chain, while still maintaining the security and decentralization of the Ethereum network.

Here are several reasons why we chose zkSync:

  1. Scalability: zkSync is designed to significantly increase the transaction throughput of Ethereum, allowing for faster and cheaper transactions compared to the Ethereum mainnet. This makes it suitable for applications that require high transaction volumes, such as decentralized exchanges (DEXs), games, and payments.

  2. Cost-Effectiveness: Transactions on zkSync typically have much lower gas fees compared to the Ethereum mainnet, making it more cost-effective for users who want to save on transaction fees.

  3. Security: zkSync leverages zero-knowledge proofs, which are cryptographic techniques that enable secure off-chain transactions. This ensures that transactions on zkSync are as secure as transactions on the Ethereum mainnet, while also providing additional privacy features.

  4. User Experience: Transactions on zkSync are fast, with near-instant confirmations, and do not require users to wait for multiple confirmations as on the Ethereum mainnet. This results in a better user experience, particularly for applications that require quick transaction processing, such as payments or trading.

  5. Interoperability: zkSync is compatible with existing Ethereum tools, wallets, and dApps, making it easy for developers and users to integrate with and use zkSync alongside the Ethereum mainnet.

  6. Future-Proofing: zkSync is actively developed and maintained by a dedicated team, and has a roadmap for continued upgrades and improvements. Choosing zkSync allows you to benefit from ongoing development efforts and improvements in the protocol.
