What is zkSync?
zkSync is a Layer 2 scaling solution for Ethereum that aims to increase transaction throughput and reduce fees while maintaining the security and decentralization of the Ethereum network. It uses zero-knowledge proofs to enable fast and secure transactions off-chain, which are then periodically verified and settled on the Ethereum mainnet. Users can interact with zkSync through a user-friendly interface or directly via smart contracts, and can transfer any ERC-20 or ETH assets on the network.
With zkSync's testnet, developers and users now have a secure environment to explore the possibilities of Layer 2 scaling solutions. By getting zkSync Faucet tokens from the Goerli Era Portal, anyone can get started with testing applications and exploring different use-cases for this technology.
