Scroll, the zkEVM-based layer 2 network, has gone live on mainnet following a two-year development period.
Scroll, being a security-focused Ethereum scaling network, employs zero-knowledge technology and was one of the first to launch zk-powered EVM (Ethereum Virtual Machine).
After over 8 months of being live on the Goerli testnet, the much-anticipated zero-knowledge EVM network is now ready for developers to build scalable apps for the Ethereum ecosystem.
Scroll has had tremendous success during the testing phase, recording over 90 million transactions and deploying over 450k smart contracts. According to the statement, it had 305k daily transactions and generated over 280k zero-knowledge proofs.
The Scroll mainnet has emerged following comprehensive evaluations by key development firms like as OpenZeppelin and Zellic, among others.
Users of Ethereum can now begin utilizing Scroll by bridging ETH to the network, as it supports ETH as a native currency for functions such as sending transactions and creating dApps.
The ZKP (zero-knowledge proofs) ecosystem has grown fast in recent years as a number of stakeholders in the crypto ecosystem enable it to reveal larger scalability for Ethereum. Leading names in this arena include Polygon, zkSync, Consensys, Immutable, and others.
