The developers of liquid staking service Rocket Pool have deployed the protocol in an L2 solution for scaling the Ethereum network called zkSync Era.

Rocket Pool has already been launched on the Optimism and Arbitrum L2 networks.

There are currently 58 protocols deployed in zkSync Era.

“This is another step in the mission to lower barriers to participation inproof-of-stake. By holding the utility token in zkSync Era, users will continue to receive rewards […]as well as enjoy the higher speed and lower transaction costs of the network”, — noted in the team.

zkSync Era is an EVM-compliant protocol that is built around zero-knowledge proof.

On March 24, 2023, the Matter Lab team launched the alpha version of zkSync on the mainnet.

The share of Rocket Pool in the liquid staking segment is 7.72%. The project is ranked third behind Lido (73.85%) and Coinbase (11.88%), according to DeFi Llama.

Recall that in April, 1inch Network added support for zkSync Era.

Startup Matter Labs, behind the development of the L2 solution, raised $50 million in November 2022.

Previously, ForkLog described the procedure for withdrawing ETH from the Rocket Pool.
