In the wild and chaotic world of Ethereum, one man dares to dream of a community-driven, decentralized, and immutable scaling solution. Ye Zhang, co-founder of Scroll, is on a mission to bring Ethereum’s values to life through their zero-knowledge EVM (Ethereum Virtual Machine). This project, born out of love and idealism, aims to scale Ethereum while staying true to its principles of decentralization.
Unlike other zero-knowledge EVMs that already exist, Scroll is not just another computational solution. Zhang and his team have embarked on a journey to create something more profound—a human interest project that fosters organic growth and community involvement. They have spent two years developing Scroll, subjecting it to rigorous testing and audits to ensure its readiness for launch.
Zhang believes that ZK-rollups, the core of Scroll’s technology, are the holy grail of layer-2 scaling solutions. These solutions offer both affordability and security, making them the best-in-class option. However, Scroll faces stiff competition in an already crowded ecosystem, with other players like Polygon, Immutable, StarkWare, zkSync Era, and ConsenSys’ Linea vying for dominance. Zhang claims that Scroll stands out by providing a complete proof of all Ethereum opcodes and transaction components, setting it apart from systems with unproven elements.
As the launch of Scroll approaches, major projects like Uniswap and Aave are preparing to deploy on the platform. The team’s vision for Scroll extends beyond its initial centralization, with plans to decentralize further over time.
– Scroll is a community-driven, decentralized scaling solution for Ethereum.
– The project has been developed with Ethereum’s values in mind and aims to scale while maintaining decentralization.
– The zero-knowledge EVM technology used by Scroll has undergone extensive testing and audits.
– Other zero-knowledge EVM solutions already exist in the ecosystem, but Scroll differentiates itself by providing a complete proof of all Ethereum opcodes and transaction components.
– Major projects like Uniswap and Aave are preparing to deploy on Scroll.
– The initial setup of Scroll involves some centralization, but the roadmap includes plans for further decentralization.
