How to Bridge to Scroll zkEVM

As outlined above, the best way to bridge to Scroll is through the Scroll Alpha Bridge. With this method, on-chain users can transfer Goerli ETH from Goerli to Scroll to test applications on the upcoming zkEVM layer 2 protocol. It is recommended to bridge to Scroll as soon as possible to earn eligibility for their airdrop that will reward testnet and early alpha users.

Here is a simple 4-step guide to getting started:

  1. Visit the Scroll Alpha Bridge and connect your MetaMask Wallet.
  2. Select Goerli as your origin chain and Scroll as your destination chain.
  3. Input the amount of Goerli ETH you want to bridge.
  4. Click 'Send' and the ETH will arrive on your Scroll network wallet in under 2 minutes.

What are the Fees?

The fees to bridge to the Scroll zkEVM are very low because it is currently only accessible from the Goerli ETH testnet. This means that users will need to get Goerli ETH (which is free) and transfer it to Scroll via the Alpha Bridge. Based on our experience, this entire process should cost no more than $1 or $2 in gas fees.

What is the Scroll zkEVM?

The Scroll zkEVM is a scalable and privacy-preserving Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) that leverages zero-knowledge proofs. It is a project developed by the team at Scroll, a company focusing on blockchain technology and privacy.

The Scroll zkEVM aims to address some of the limitations of the traditional EVM in terms of transaction throughput and privacy. By leveraging zk-SNARKs, the Scroll zkEVM can process transactions more efficiently and in a more privacy-preserving manner, enabling a higher number of transactions per second (TPS) and offering more secure and private transactions on the Ethereum network.

Bottom Line

In conclusion, the Scroll zkEVM is an innovative, scalable, and privacy-preserving solution built on the Ethereum network. To bridge to the Scroll zkEVM, users should utilize the Scroll Alpha Bridge and Goerli Testnet ETH, which offers a low-cost and secure method to test applications on the upcoming Layer 2 protocol. By participating in the testnet phase and bridging to Scroll, users can also gain eligibility for the platform's airdrop.
