How to Participate in the zkSync Era Exploration Campaign?
Potential Airdrop Opportunity: How to Participate in the zkSync Era Exploration Campaign?
zkSync Era is an Ethereum Layer 2 scaling solution that uses zero-knowledge proofs and Rollup architecture to provide a faster and cheaper transaction experience than the Ethereum mainnet. By moving most of the activity out of the Layer 1 network, it reduces network congestion and lowers transfer fees while maintaining Ethereum’s security and finality. (For more information on zkSync Era, see: zkSync Era launches mainnet, explaining unique architecture and ecological applications.)
Recently, zkSync Era’s exploration activities are in full swing. A total of 12 projects are involved in this activity. Users can receive NFTs after completing the specified tasks, and some projects will also provide additional rewards.
