Vitalik Buterin Says Layer 2s are the Future of Ethereum Scaling
Back in October 2020, Vitalik published a post titled “What would a rollup-centric ethereum roadmap look like?” in which he argued for rollups as a scaling solution. In the year since rollups have arrived in force. So it’s only fitting that in his keynote presentation at 2021 Shanghai International Blockchain Week Vitalik said that Layer 2 is the only safe way to scale Ethereum while preserving decentralization. He specifically singled out the promise of Zero-Knowledge rollups in a slide comparing transfer costs of various ZK offerings, with Polygon Hermez topping the chart 😉
