ZK-Rollup

« Back to Index

ZK-Rollups are essentially an extension to the Ethereum blockchain. The software bundles hundreds of transactions together off-chain, and then sends the whole block to Ethereum as one transaction. The smart contract deconstructs and verifies all of the transfers held in that single transaction. Rollups mean cheaper and faster transactions and good security because they are using the blockchain’s security processes. ZK stands for zero-knowledge.
