zkEVM’s are like buses, you’ve been waiting for ages and then three come along at once. Yesterday saw big news from Scroll, Polygon and zkSync all announcing progress with their zkEVM’s projects. All three solutions are coming at the problem from a different perspective and it will be fascinating to see how Mina’s forthcoming zkBridge to Ethereum will fit into the picture.
In response to the recent announcements Mina Foundation’s CEO, Evan Shapiro has written a short medium article “Understanding the L1 Race: zkEVMs and other Common L1 Features”, together with the chart below it looks at some of the pro’s & con’s of each project.
After over a year of building our zkEVM-based zkRollup in close collaboration with the @PrivacyScaling group at the Ethereum Foundation, we are releasing the pre-alpha version of Scroll for external testers! 📜https://t.co/XNZGljaZ1s— Scroll 📜 (@Scroll_ZKP) July 19, 2022
We are proud to announce a giant leap forward for Ethereum scaling and ZK innovation.— Polygon – MATIC 💜 (@0xPolygon) July 20, 2022
Introducing Polygon #zkEVM, the first EVM-equivalent ZK L2.
Today we’re releasing a complete implementation, fully open-source, and we’re just getting started.
Over the last year, we've been heads down working to scale Ethereum and accelerate its adoption.— zkSync (@zksync) July 20, 2022
Today, we’re happy to announce that zkSync 2.0 – the first zkEVM rollup – will be live on mainnet in 100 days.
