About Blockchains

What is Scroll?

Scroll, a Layer 2 Ethereum network, aims to simplify scaling solutions for projects utilizing the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM). Its primary mechanism, zkEVM, integrates zero-knowledge proofs with the EVM, enabling rapid Ethereum transaction confirmation without the need to store and transfer additional transaction data. Scroll aims to establish a universal network that grants developers a user experience and security level akin to Ethereum while surpassing Ethereum in throughput, verification speed, and gas fee affordability

What is Polkadot?

Polkadot stands out among other blockchain projects for its focus on enhancing the foundational infrastructure of dApps. It aims to enable interoperability between blockchain ecosystems, facilitating seamless communication without intermediaries. Functioning as a "network of networks," Polkadot utilizes parachains — specialized blockchains with unique functionalities and tokens — to enable interaction between diverse blockchain architectures. Powered by the nominated proof-of-stake (PoS) consensus algorithm and drawing inspiration from the Ouroboros protocol, Polkadot offers a robust framework for building interconnected and scalable decentralized systems.
