– Scroll co-founder Ye Zhang is working on a community-driven decentralized scaling solution for Ethereum called Scroll.
– The project aims to stay true to Ethereum’s values and principles while scaling the network.
– The team has been working on Scroll for two years, driven by a shared vision and a love for the project.
– The zkEVM (zero-knowledge EVM) is set to launch within weeks after extensive testing and code audits.
– Scroll will launch after major projects like Uniswap and Aave are ready to deploy on the platform.
– Zhang believes that ZK-rollups are the best layer-2 scaling solution, offering cheap and secure transactions.
– While there are already other zkEVM solutions in the market, Zhang claims that Scroll provides a complete proof of all Ethereum opcodes and transaction components.
– Scroll uses zero-knowledge proofs to compress data off-chain, enabling higher throughput.
– The initial setup of Scroll involves some centralization, but the roadmap aims to decentralize further over time.
