zkSync developers announced the launch of the solution on the Ethereum core network
In November, the Matter Labs team will launch zkSync 2.0, a Layer 2 scaling solution for the core Ethereum network for a limited number of users. A public alpha version of the project will be unveiled in late 2022.
“Over the past year, we’ve been head over heels in working to scale Ethereum and accelerate its adoption. Today we are pleased to announce that zkSync, the first zkEVM rollup, will appear in mainnet in 100 days,” – the developers wrote.
zkSync is a Layer 2 proof-of-confidence, zero-disclosure protocol solution that is compatible with EVM. It uses ZK-Rollups to reduce the load on the underlying network by bundling transactions.
Since the project supports EVM, developers of decentralized applications will be able to create and deploy smart contracts in an environment that is compatible with Ethereum’s native programming languages, Solidity and Vyper.
Launching the solution in the mainnet will consist of several stages.
In November, the team will deploy zkSync 2.0 without connecting external projects. Matter Labs explained that this is necessary to test the system.
“We will subject the system to a series of stress tests with real money. They will help us make sure that everything works properly and performs as expected,” – the statement said.
The developers will then submit the project’s code base for auditing, publish technical documentation, and complete other necessary preparations. After that, a limited number of users will have access to zkSync 2.0.
The public alpha version of the solution will be launched before the end of 2022.
Earlier, Matter Labs deployed zkSync 2.0 in a test network of the second most capitalized cryptocurrency.
Recall that Ethereum founder Vitalik Buterin called the ZK-Rollups technology a central element of the blockchain scaling concept.
