Breakthrough ZK Rollup Platform Zircuit Launches Public Testnet


Grand Cayman, CAYMAN ISLANDS, November 9th, 2023, Chainwire

Zircuit, a revolutionary zero-knowledge rollup platform backed by pioneering L2 research, today announced the launch of its public testnet. Compatible with existing Ethereum dApps and wallets, Zircuit allows developers to deploy their dApps on the platform with minimal changes. To mark the launch, Zircuit is hosting a multi-day event at Devconnect starting Monday, November 13th.

In the past year and a half, Zircuit has been at the forefront of Layer 2 (L2) research, developing rollup security tooling, rollup compression and scaling cryptography. This research has culminated in the upcoming testnet, which integrates the team’s research advances and new technology.

Zircuit’s hybrid approach combines the latest zero-knowledge proofs with optimistic infrastructure. This enables proof generation to be more efficient, leading to reduced fees, and the development of new compression algorithms increases transaction speeds and saves users gas. This advanced integration allows developers to move popular dApps to Zircuit without making costly changes.

Zircuit provides a perfect environment for developers to test their dApps before launching on Ethereum mainnet. By having security at the sequencer level, malicious transactions will be blocked, while developers can still detect attempts to hack. Transactions on Zircuit are cheap and setup only takes minutes, making it a quick, low-risk solution for developers.

The combination of rollup and ZK technology in Zircuit also provides a smooth experience for end users. Ethereum applications can seamlessly deploy onto Zircuit without having to learn a new programming language or framework, meaning users can enjoy the new features, speed and cost benefits of these dApps without any extra effort.

“Our research on rollups has led to the creation of an L2 scaling solution that is pushing boundaries and opening the way to a new generation of rollups. It is taking the existing technology further and easing use for both developers and dApp users,” said Dr. Jan Gorzny, Head of L2 Scaling at Zircuit.

Zircuit is inviting developers and projects from across the web3 ecosystem to take part in its testnet. Projects will receive onboarding, readiness support and developer workshop assistance, as well as incentives.

During Devconnect, Zircuit is hosting a four-day event where attendees can learn more about the testnet launch, engage with the Zircuit team and socialize with other web3 community members. Tickets are available at
