zkSync aims to reduce Ethereum’s congestion and scale its core values to unleash the full potential of blockchain technology, accelerating the mass adoption of cryptocurrencies.
- zkSync is a Layer 2 protocol addressing Ethereum’s scalability and cost-efficiency challenges.
- It uses zk-Rollups to merge layer-2 transactions into a single transaction on the Ethereum blockchain.
- zkSync’s Account Abstraction feature allows for converting private accounts into smart contracts, supporting automatic transfers and membership payments.
- It offers greater scalability and lower transaction costs compared to other solutions like Optimistic Rollup.
- Challenges include compromised security with consensus mechanisms and the risk of lost transactions.
- zkSync has had a significant impact on the Ethereum ecosystem, with promising implications for decentralized finance and non-fungible tokens.
