zkSync 1.0 Tutorial

zkSync is a trustless protocol for scalable low-cost payments on Ethereum, powered by zkRollup technology, from Matter Labs. It uses zero-knowledge proofs and on-chain data availability to keep users' funds as safe as though they never left the mainnet.

Some of the main features of zkSync are:

  • Extremely low transaction fees
  • Trustless protocol
  • Funds are cryptographically secure, as in the Ethereum mainnet
  • Users are always in control of their funds
  • No requirement for operational activity to keep the funds safe
