ZKSpace is welcoming its 2nd birthday! Since ZKSwap V1 launched on the mainnet on Feb 14, 2021, ZKSpace has evolved into a full-featured Layer2 protocol based on ZK-Rollups technology. It currently consists of four products: ZKSwap, ZKSquare, ZKSea and ZNS.

ZKSwap is a decentralised exchange protocol based on the Automated Market Maker (AMM) model, allowing users to list any ERC20 token pair and exchange tokens; ZKSquare is a Layer2 payment protocol that allows users to enjoy instant Layer2 payment with negligible gas fee, and it has been widely used in prize distribution and airdrops; ZKSea is the first ZK-Rollup NFT platform that supports users to mint, list, and trade NFT by themselves, greatly reducing the cost of minting and trading NFTs on the ETH mainnet; ZNS is the industry’s first Layer2 domain name solution, which helps users easily own their Web3 DIDs.

To celebrate our 2nd anniversary, we’ve created 6 types of anniversary NFTs, which will be distributed free of charge to participants of the anniversary event. For all users who use (or once used) ZKSpace products and claim the NFTs, you’ll share millions of ZKS prizes! Read the event rules and join the carnival lasting from February 14th to 28th, and if you are new to ZKSpace, you’ll find a tutorial to ZKSpace features down below.

New to ZKSpace? Here is a guide for you. You’ll find that each of the tasks is as simple as a few clicks.

L2 Wallet — deposit

L2 Wallet is the cornerstone of the ZKSpace ecosystem. All L2 products require using your L2 wallet.

Your L2 wallet address is the same as your ETH mainnet address. You’ll be able to use all Layer2 products after you deposit your asset on the mainnet to your L2 wallet. Your assets are kept by the smart contract on Ethereum, and the private key and asset security are entirely under your control. Feel free to refer to ZKSpace security audit certificate by ABDK here:

Deposit: Go to , connect your Ethereum wallet, and click Deposit.
