After spending over 15 months in test net, 90 million transactions and one stealth launch later, Scroll has announced the launch of its mainnet. The announcement puts the newcomer Scroll Layer 2 out of qualifying and into the zkEVM grandprix along with other ZK Rollup leaders, Polygon's ZKEVM and Matter Lab's ZKSync.
At time of writing, the Dune dashboards indicate that, users have bridged over 4,111 Ethereum (US$ 6.51 million) into Scroll from over 11,500 users since the launch of its mainnet.
During an interview on the Bankless podcast, Scroll co-founder Sandy Peng indicated that the platform would continue to "triple-down" on its strategy of EVM (Ethereum Virtual Machine) equivalence against performance.
zkEVMs are Layer 2 networks built on Ethereum, using zero-knowledge proofs for scalability. Being Ethereum Virtual Machine-compatible, these networks can support Ethereum applications while running at scale.
