About ZKSwap

ZKSwap is the first AMM modeled layer-2 dex using ZK-Rollups technology. ZKSwap has fully enabled trustless and gas-free payment and transfer (ZKPay) and gas-free, real-time, and infinitely scalable token swaps (ZKSwap) on Ethereum layer-2.

With ZKPay, we provide a full suite of layer-2 solutions and support all ERC20 token transfer with gas-free, real-time, and a final TPS over 2000. The follow-up plan focuses on supporting all stable coins and using ZKPay’s payment services.

With ZKSwap, users can deposit layer-1 assets (ETH and ERC-20 tokens) to ZKSwap smart contracts and complete transfer, token exchange, etc., on layer-2. The funds on ZKSwap layer-2 have the same security as Ethereum layer-1. Transactions on layer-2 are executed in real-time, with no need to wait for one block confirmation, no gas fees, and almost unlimited scalability. ZKSwap is free from the bottlenecks of TPS and one block confirmation time from the underpinning native blockchain and hence will bring significant improvement to both DEXes and CEXes. …
