Overview of Scroll's Early Ecosystem & Opportunities for Leading Players in zkEVM

Author: Babywhale, Foresight News

The Ethereum Layer 2 network Scroll based on ZK Rollup has gained significant attention in the industry since last year. Scroll announced in April 2022 and March of this year that it has completed a Series A financing round led by Polychain Capital, raising $30 million, and a $50 million financing round with participation from Polychain Capital, Sequoia China, IOSG Ventures, Qiming Venture Partners, and OKX Ventures.

In April of this year, at the “FORESIGHT 2023” annual summit co-hosted by Foresight Ventures and Foresight News, Sandy Peng, co-founder of Scroll, stated that Scroll will go live on the mainnet in the next three to four months. After confirming with the project team, Scroll will not go live on the mainnet this month. Later, Scroll also announced the launch of the Beta testnet on Sepolia testnet. The long-awaited mainnet may still take some time.

The Pre-Alpha and Alpha testnets previously launched by Scroll have attracted a large number of projects and users. This article will list the ecosystem projects listed on the Scroll official website, which will also be the “vanguard” after the mainnet goes live.
