In a significant step forward in the development of Zero Knowledge (ZK) technology, an innovative area related to privacy and security in digital transactions, zkSync announced the launch of zkStack.
Created by Matter Labs, zkSync was launched in its current form in March 2023. This is a layer 2 scaling solution for Ethereum using zk rollup, beginning The zkEVM chain runs on mainnet.
As the zkSync team reported on Twitter, zkStack is ZK Credois designed to serve as a modular framework for building Sovereign ZK-powered chains, also known as hyperchains.
zkSync has evolved from a purely technical project into a community united by a shared mission. “Using the magic of ZK technology to advance personal freedom for all,” the team declared in a statement. tweet thread The release of zkStack reaffirms this commitment, offering a free, configurable, modular, “proven” and “future-proof” platform.
of zk stack Developed under the “fully permissive MIT/Apache open source license”. This is consistent with the zkSync ethos of accessibility and sovereignty outlined in ZK Credo. This allows developers and organizations to contribute and use the framework, facilitating widespread adoption and innovation of ZK technology.
One of the key features of zkStack is Configurability. Hyperchains built on zkStack can seamlessly connect to trustless networks, boast low latency and shared liquidity, and can power transactions across a range of financial and digital services. While they rely on “Ethereum L1 for uptime and security” to operate independently, HyperBridge’s network facilitates the interconnection of all hyperchains for fast and economical interoperability. Offers.
Additionally, zkStack is modular. This means developers have the autonomy to “customize and shape every aspect of the hyperchain,” as the zkSync team puts it. Moderate director. This degree of customization can appeal to a wide range of use cases. For example, DeFi apps leverage their capabilities to improve financial transactions, NFT projects secure digital asset transfers, game developers integrate blockchain into their games, and businesses build private interconnected blockchain systems. can be constructed.
The zkSync team believes ZK Rollup is the future of Ethereum scaling. Therefore, zkStack is claimed to be “future-proof” designed with the right architecture to maximize the functional potential of ZK. The team also released a set of technical details about the zkStack architecture to facilitate discussion and promote a broader understanding and contribution to zkStack.
zkStack emphasizes sovereignty, accessibility and interoperability and could play a key role in shaping the future of decentralization and blockchain technology.
