Scroll, a layer 2 scaling solution to the Ethereum blockchain, appears to have launched its main network, according to blockchain data.
Led by co-founder Sandy Peng, Scroll has been building a so-called ZK rollup – a layer-2 network built using zero-knowledge cryptography – that is compatible with the Ethereum Virtual Machine computing environment, or EVM. The compatibility makes it easy for developers to redeploy applications built for Ethereum onto the new "zkEVM" network.
Scroll’s debut adds to the competition among rival providers of zkEVMs, including Polygon and Matter Labs.
On Dune Analytics, a blockchain analysis platform, a dashboard was launched to track the new Scroll zkEVM. As of Thursday some 370 ETH ($565,000 worth) had been bridged to the network, the dashboard shows.
Scroll has not confirmed whether they will be coming out with their own token.
A spokesperson declined to comment on the blockchain transactions.
The blockchain data was first reported on by The Block.
