ConsenSys has announced the upcoming release of its zero-knowledge Ethereum Virtual Machine (zkEVM) rollup to a public testnet on March 28, allowing for stress testing of the layer-2 scaling technology.ConsenSys’ research and development team has been working on its zkEVM rollup over the past four years.

The zkEVM is touted to offer fast finality, high throughput and security of settlements on the Ethereum blockchain. A private beta launched in Q4 of 2022 gave early access to limited users, which processed over 350,000 transactions and onboarded various decentralized applications (DApps).

The testnet allowed Solidity developers to build, test and launch DApps while testing the zkEVM at scale. Onboarding for our zkEVM is in full flow, and activity is at peak levels We’ve successfully executed 300k total transactions and are processing more than 50,000 transactions per day zkEVM is the culmination of work from teams at Infura, Truffle and MetaMask, as well as developers on Besu and Gnark.

Integrations and features of the rollup were aimed to remove developer complexity, improve security and expedite onboarding times.An announcement shared with Cointelegraph highlighted zero switching costs as a benefit to projects in the ecosystem.
