Celer Expands Support of zkSync to Include Asset Bridging and Message Passing (Celer IM) for zkSync 2.0

2 min read

It is always exciting to see how Web3 is changing and evolving with new innovations, tech, and tools being created so quickly. In order to continuously grow and thrive with Web3 we are constantly looking for opportunities for us to expand and support anyone who is using our tech. We are excited to announce that Celer has successfully integrated with the zkSync 2.0 testnet and will launch on Day 1 of zkSync 2.0’s fair launch alpha mainnet milestone! After our initial integration in early 2022 for both asset bridging and generic message passing (Celer IM) support for zkSync, we are happy to be able to continue that support as they continue to grow. With this we are able to continue to enable interoperability between zkSync and other ecosystems, as well as maintaining the ability for developers and users to have access to fast, secure, and easy cross-chain user experiences. 

zkSync is a ZK rollup, a trustless protocol that uses cryptographic validity proofs to provide scalable and low-cost transactions on Ethereum. This is all while the computation and most of the data storage is done off-chain while all transactions are proven on Ethereum Mainnet. This allows users to enjoy the lower costs of using a ZK rollup while maintaining the security of the Ethereum L1. Just like on Ethereum, smart contracts are written in Solidity/Vyper on zkSync and can be called using the same clients as the other EVM-compatible chains and will support existing Ethereum wallets out of the box on the Day 1 of its full mainnet launch.

Celer will continue to support asset bridging for token transfers between external chains and zkSync 2.0 mainnet. Additionally, we will also be supporting Celer’s Inter-chain Messaging Framework, a generic message passing protocol, to seamlessly enable developers to build dApps with cross-chain application logics on zkSync 2.0. This will enable dApps to not only create smooth cross-chain UXs between zkSync 2.0 and various external blockchains, but lays down the foundation to support NFT bridges, the ability to purchase and bid on NFTs across different chains, and cross-chain reward claiming. All of these and more are not only possible to accomplish with Celer IM, but can be offered to users as a one-click, one-transaction UX.

Celer will continue to support the same solid interoperability foundation offered on zkSync 1.0 as they launch zkSync 2.0. We hope to ensure the zkSync 2.0 ecosystem will be vibrant and thrive, and we are looking forward to seeing how developers and users will use Celer’s tech stack in the future and are excited to see where it goes!

About zkSync

zkSync is an open-source Layer-2 blockchain that eliminates Ethereum’s costly gas fees, scaling constraints, and performance barriers using zero-knowledge proofs. Built by a distributed team of leading cryptographers and engineers, zkSync is designed to unlock the full potential of blockchain technology while scaling the core values of Ethereum.

Bootstrapped by initial funding from the Ethereum Foundation, zkSync has powered over 10 million transactions, fuels major web3 applications, including Argent and Gitcoin, and recently launched the first EVM compatible zero-knowledge rollup, allowing developers to deploy general-purpose applications written in Solidity.
