Celer cBridge and IM Launched in zkSync Era’s Fair Onboarding Alpha

2 min read

After our initial integration in early 2022 for both asset bridging and generic message passing (Celer IM) support for zkSync Lite (previously zkSync 1.0), we are happy to be able to expand that support to zkSync Era (previously zkSync 2.0). As zkSync Era continues to grow closer to their public mainnet launch, we are excited to announce that Celer has been selected to be part of the first batch of whitelisted projects for zkSync Era’s fair onboarding alpha on mainnet. We would like to congratulate their team on this amazing milestone and look forward to working with them in supporting zkSync Era! 

Celer-bridged token addresses on zkSync Era:

  • BNB – 0x7400793aAd94C8CA801aa036357d10F5Fd0ce08f
  • BUSD – 0x2039bb4116B4EFc145Ec4f0e2eA75012D6C0f181
  • AVAX – 0x6A5279E99CA7786fb13F827Fc1Fb4F61684933d6
  • MATIC – 0x28a487240e4D45CfF4A2980D334CC933B7483842

zkSync Era is an EVM-compatible ZK Rollup being built by Matter Labs, powered by their zkEVM. 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 Era 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.

Our support initially includes bridging via the xAsset (lock-and-mint) model between BNB Chain, Avalanche, and Polygon. Additionally we are also supporting zkSync Era with Celer Inter-chain Messaging so that projects are able to build cross-chain application logics across zkSync Era and the 10+ other blockchains that Celer-IM supports. As the ecosystem grows and zkSync Era becomes more battle-tested, we plan to add additional bridging support via xLiquidity, our liquidity-pool based model, for tokens natively issued or bridged onto zkSync Era.  

Celer will continue to support the same solid interoperability foundation offered on zkSync Lite as zkSync Era launches. We hope to ensure the zkSync Era ecosystem will be vibrant and thrive, and we are looking forward to seeing how developers will use Celer’s tech stack in this initial alpha release 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.
