zkSync supports ZK rollups
zkSync supports ZK rollups, a type of blockchain scaling system based on zero-knowledge proofs.
These are a key advancement in speeding up transactions and reducing network activity costs.
The ecosystem has many decentralized finance (DeFi) tokens. This includes power lending, trading, and borrowing services. Furthermore, the memecoins also followed after the popular Shiba Inu dog.
SyncSwap and Mute hold over $30 million in locked tokens. Additionally, Mute’s native MUTE tokens has a market capitalization of $47 million.
Moreover, tokens such as ZKDoge, ZKInu, and ZkSync SHIB have also attracted millions of dollars in trading volumes since their recent launches.
Some believe that the zkSync launch has not lived up to its hype. Others think that adoption will increase quickly with the introduction of innovative projects designed to address users’ core needs.
