zkSync is a ZK rollup, a trustless protocol that uses cryptographic validity proofs to provide scalable and low-cost transactions on Ethereum. In zkSync, computation is performed off-chain and most data is stored off-chain as well. As all transactions are proven on the Ethereum mainchain, users enjoy the same security level as in Ethereum.

zkSync has raised a total of $458 million from leading investors like Blockchain Capital and Dragonfly Capital. They’ve hinted that they will launch their native token in the future, so trying out their mainnet and testnet may make you eligible for an airdrop when they launch their token.

Step-by-Step Guide:
  1. Visit the zkSync Era mainnet bridge page.
  2. Connect your Ethereum wallet.
  3. Now bridge ETH from the Ethereum mainnet to zkSync Era Mainnet and vice versa.
  4. You can use Ramp to fund your L2 Zksync mainnet wallet directly, without the need to use any exchanges. This is the cheapest way to fund your L2 Zksync wallet currently.
  5. Visit the zkSync testnet page.
  6. Connect your Metamask wallet and you will be automatically asked to change the network to Goerli test network.
  7. Get some Goerli test ETH from here.
  8. Now use the Deposit, Transfer and Withdraw options. Also click on “Faucet” to get some testnet tokens.
  9. For more information regarding the testnet, see this Medium article.
  10. Also try to use zkSync based dapps like ZigZag and Nexon Finance to increase your chance of getting a potential airdrop.
  11. You could also combine the Orbiter Finance speculative airdrop with zkSync speculative airdrop by bridging assets from Layer 1 to zkSkync Layer 2 or vice versa using Orbiter Finance.
  12. They had already hinted that they will launch a token.
  13. There is speculation that users who’ve made transactions on the zkSync mainnet may get an airdrop once they launch their own token.
  14. Please note that there is no guarantee that they will do an airdrop and that they will launch their own token. It’s only speculation.
