- This is a modular toolkit on top of the zkSync Era network
- It allows you to launch “hyperchains” as simply and quickly as possible.
- This is how Matter Labs wants to create an ecosystem of interconnected blockchains
- The project is a direct competitor to the Superchain concept from Optimism
Yesterday, June 26, developer studio Matter Labs introduced a new product called the ZK Stack. It will use recursive scaling and so-called “hyperchains” to create a single ecosystem of interoperable protocols.
“Come on, this is the ZK Stack: your modular framework for creating individual hyperchains based on ZK and open source Era” – noted Matter Labs in their publication.
ZkSync Era, launched at the end of March, will be the first “hyperchain” of the new ecosystem. Using the toolkit, users will be able to run their own “branches” of both L2 and L3.
The networks will be composable and interoperable, allowing liquidity and credit to be instantly transferred between protocols. zkSync co-founder and CEO Alex Gluchowski in a comment to Cointelegraph stated that the project aims to eliminate “unsafe” bridging solutions. It is also obvious that the project is positioned as an analogue of the Superchain concept from Optimism. We mentioned this strategy in the article about the network rebranding and the Bedrock update.
