How This Solution Could Drive Massive Adoption For Ethereum

Ethereum has had a couple of miserable years in terms of price but development on the world’s largest smart contract and dApp platform has continued. Speed and scalability are the keys for mass adoption and a solution is already being developed.

Ethereum Evolution

Ethereum’s infighting in 2016 and 2017 has been replaced by co-operation and alliance-building, according to an article shared by Barry Silbert, the founder and CEO of Digital Currency Group.

Last month, Matter Labs published an in-depth report titled ‘the missing link to mass adoption of Ethereum’. It was shared by Circle CEO Jeremy Allaire who stated that it was a big win for Ethereum based stablecoins.

ZK Rollups now possible and will allow Layer 2 scaling on Ethereum supporting upwards of 3000tps (larger than Visa), while maintaining decentralization and privacy.

The report introduced the concept stating that a successful scaling solution must include the system’s ability to meet the demands of millions of users without sacrificing decentralization. None of them can actually achieve this yet as most public blockchains are still largely experimental and virtually unused.

As Ethereum co-founder, Vitalik Buterin, pointed out in the past, it’s impossible for a blockchain to boast scalability, security and decentralization all at once. He argues that, at most, a blockchain will possess 2 of these traits.

Recent advances in zero knowledge proofs however have opened up new possibilities in this arena. ZK is a cryptographic protocol by which one party can prove to another party that they know a value of something without revealing any information apart from the fact that they know the value.

Visa Scale Throughput

According to the researchers, a solution called ZK Sync is designed to bring a VISA-scale throughput of thousands of transactions per second to the Ethereum network.

ZK Sync is built on ZK Rollup architecture which is a Layer 2 scalin...
