Consensys zkEVM

An open source zkEVM powering the Linea network

Get unrivaled scalability using the apps, infra and tooling you love

Build, test and launch dApps with the skills you have and tools you know. Connect instantly with MetaMask and Infura, deploy bytecode as is and deploy apps just as you would on Ethereum.

Low gas fees

Build dApps that users can interact with at scale

EVM equivalent

Fully compatible with existing tooling, infrastructure, IDEs and wallets.

Secured by Ethereum

Backed by the security of Ethereum, where all rollup transactions are verified on-chain by a decentralized community of over 500k validators

Next gen scalability

Innovative lattice-based zkSNARK prover generates fast zero-knowledge proofs.

Scale dapps with zero switching costs

Migrate existing dapps with no code changes or smart contract rewrites

  • Next generation scaling
    Our zkEVM delivers industry leading throughput and opens the door to infinite scaling with L3s
  • Ethereum aligned
    100% EVM bytecode compatibility, so you can deploy your existing dapp in minutes without changes
  • Developer-friendly design
    Built to minimize onboarding time, our rollup abstracts away ZK complexity, uses ETH for gas and has no reliance on third party transpilers or bespoke middleware
  • Highly composable
    General purpose rollup designed for atomic synchronous interoperability between all deployed dApps
  • Industry leading efficiency
    Award winning prover built with in house libraries delivers ultra-low gas fees

Accelerate time to value with Linea's developer friendly integrations

Build, test and launch dapps on the Linea network using native integrations with tools like Truffle, Infura and MetaMask

  • Connect in seconds
    Easy user onboarding with default MetaMask integration
  • Ship faster and scale with confidence
    Infura’s easy to use API abstracts protocol complexity enabling devs to ship faster and scale with the confidence of 99.9% uptime
  • Use the tools you love
    Build, test, debug and deploy Solidity smart contracts with popular dev environments like Truffle, HardHat, Foundry and Brownie
  • Test locally
    Fork and debug the zkEVM locally and test faster with built in Ganache compatibility support
  • Securely bridge and swap tokens
    Safely move tokens on and off network with our native, trustless bridge and access to MetaMask’s user-friendly Bridge

Build with confidence

From the genesis block, ConsenSys has helped build and democratize Ethereum.

  • Open, flexible architecture
    Extensible and modular design will enable developers to configure dApps for their unique privacy, data availability and access control needs.
  • Grounded in research
    Built on four years of research on zk-based scalability, elliptic curves for zk proof systems, zk design circuits, rollups and bridging with full formal verification of cryptography and arithmetization for complete security
  • Built for Ethereum
    Created alongside the teams that designed the Beacon Chain and Ethereum’s Engine API, the ConsenSys zk rollup will be managed as an open source public good alongside Hyperledger Besu, Teku and Web3Signer
  • Commitment to decentralization
    Committed to decentralization and open source development of our prover and arithmetization. With full EVM equivalence there is no developer lock in and protocols can easily port apps to other EVM based networks.
"We are excited to support ConsenSys zkEVM and allow users to bridge between Ethereum and their new chain using the familiar Hop interface. The ease of integration, tooling [and] compatibility allowed this integration to work seamlessly with the existing Hop development stack."
