Anton Bukov, the co-founder of 1inch Network, thinks that Ethereum will likely become the main settlement layer for a multi-chain decentralized finance (DeFi) ecosystem.
“There is like a high chance that most of the chains will try to commit their states to Ethereum as a higher layer,” Bukov said in an exclusive interview with Cointelegraph.
Bukov, who is number 39 in Cointelegraph’s Top 100 list for 2022, acknowledges that in order to achieve that, Ethereum needs to solve the scalability issues that limit its transaction output.
According to Bukov, the best scaling solution for Ethereum is zk-SNARK Rollups, a technology that uses the zero-knowledge proof system to reduce the computing resources to validate transaction blocks.
“One million of gas transactions and 100 million gas transactions. Validation of these transactions on zk-rollups would cost you the same amount of computations,” he explained.
Bukov is not interested in Bitcoin (BTC), which he sees as unsuitable for developing smart contracts. “I…
