We are excited to announce that we’re integrating zkSync, a leading Layer-2 scaling solution for Ethereum, and will provide advanced onchain data and analytics for its ecosystem. This integration is poised to shed light on the expansion and adoption of zkSync, empowering both existing users and the broader crypto communities by offering a comprehensive understanding of onchain activity within the zkSync ecosystem.

“We are thrilled to integrate zkSync, a leading ZK-rollup, to bring best-in-class onchain data and analytics to the ecosystem. This integration will offer unique onchain insights, enabling users and crypto teams to analyze activities within the zkSync ecosystem. These insights will further the growth and adoption of the network,” says Alex Svanevik, CEO of Nansen.

zkSync: Advancing Ethereum's Technology for a Scalable Future

zkSync is at the cutting edge of Layer-2 solutions, offering scalable, secure, and user-friendly transactions for the Ethereum network. Its ecosystem is designed to enable developers and brands to deploy efficient, Web3-optimized applications, advancing digital interactions through the enhanced capabilities of blockchain technology.

“The integration of zkSync by Nansen, one of the premier blockchain analytics platforms, will add tremendous value for both the existing zkSync community and the Web3 space at large. The great benefit of permissionless blockchains such as zkSync is that all the data is public and contains valuable insights for builders, investors, and end-users alike. However, without platforms like Nansen that can process and label this data, it is not digestible or actionable.” says Omar Azhar, Head of Business Development at Matter Labs

Pudgy World: A Step Towards Mainstream Adoption

Beyond the typical onchain applications mentioned above, zkSync is also the home of Pudgy World, an interactive digital world accessible to Pudgy Penguin NFT holders and Pudgy toy owners. Each Pudgy toy comes with a QR code, which enables the owner to create a "Forever Pudgy" within Pudgy World, over which the owner has ownership.
