📜Why Scroll ?

Scroll: a Layer-2 ecosystem based on zk-Rollup

Scroll is a new Layer-2 solution aiming at providing boundless scalability, lightning-fast confirmation latency, full decentralization, and trustless privacy.

Scroll Tech aims to build an EVM-compatible zk-Rollup with a strong proving network

Scroll will build a fully EVM-compatible zk-Rollup.

Scroll aims to enable direct Ethereum block verification using concise proofs, ensuring opcode consistency in EVM execution traces. This facilitates smooth migration of L1 contracts, leveraging native EVM support with tailored optimizations, maintaining compatibility with Ethereum infrastructure.

Scroll will enable and standardize Layer-2 proof outsourcing.

Scroll have designed a robust outsource mechanism which can incentivize rollers to generate zero-knowledge proofs for them. Scroll will standardize such scheme to fit into a broader spectrum of general off-chain computations. This will open a new proof market. Another direct influence for developers is that they can deploy complicated contracts in Scroll without considering the gas limit. A lot of new applications can be enabled off-chain with proofs committed on-chain.

Positive Impact on the Ethereum Network after mainnet launch!

  1. Enhanced Scalability: Scroll zkRollup offers a more efficient and cost-effective transaction experience compared to the Ethereum base layer. By bundling multiple transactions into a single proof, Scroll reduces congestion, improves throughput, and lowers transaction fees. This enhanced scalability opens up new possibilities for users and developers alike.

  2. Security Preservation: Scroll zkRollup leverages the security of the Ethereum mainnet, ensuring the safety of users' funds. By anchoring zkRollup transactions to the Ethereum mainnet, Scroll benefits from the robust security infrastructure already in place, providing users with a trustworthy and reliable environment.

  3. Interoperability and Seamless Migration: Scroll's EVM equivalence enables developers to easily migrate existing applications and tools to the Scroll network. This interoperability ensures a smooth transition, minimizing disruptions and making it more attractive for developers to adopt Scroll as their scaling solution of choice.
