Since we launched our mainnet earlier this year, we’ve been working diligently to roll out our mining events and updated roadmap. We are happy to share this and look forward to the feedback and further participation of the community, ”said Alex Lee, Development Manager at ZKSwap.

ZKSwap will officially start the mining events Proof-of-Liquidity Mining (PoL) and Proof-of-TransFee (PoT) on March 6th at 6:00 p.m. (GMT + 8). The first phase of these events lasts 14 days, with 8 million ZKS mining rewards for PoL and 1 million ZKS for PoT. The first phase of PoL mining begins with six trading pairs: ZKS / ETH, USDC / USDT, ZKS / USDT, ETH / WBTC, ETH / USDT, HBTC / WBTC. For PoT, mining will be for USDT / USDC.

A detailed mining tutorial will be published on the ZKSwap official website before the event begins. Additional rewards and trade pairs can be added depending on the event status.

ZKSwap’s roadmap for 2021 is now also available on the company’s Medium blog. The roadmap contains details on ZKSwap V2 and the target date for the start of a separate 100% complete ZK rollup version with L1 and L2 data in the chain to further improve platform security.

ZKSwap uses ZKSpeed ​​to achieve high TPS and low gas tariffs by collecting multiple knowledge-free evidence, processing the PLONK algorithm in parallel, and categorizing data out of the chain. It also enables GPU compatible algorithms for greater efficiency.

With an investment of 1.7 million US dollars, ZKSwap launched its mainnet in February 2021. Before the start, ZKSwap successfully passed the security checks by ABDK, Certik and SlowMist.
