Inscriptions craze proves stark contrast between Ethereum rollups

The advent of zero-knowledge proof-based Ethereum rollups represents a significant advance in blockchain scalability and efficiency.

Over the past week, their ability to handle a spike in transaction volumes was put to the test with the fad-like phenomenon of inscriptions hitting various EVM-based networks in sequence.

One aspect unique to zk-rollups, such as zkSync, StarkNet and Polygon’s zkEVM, is their ability to amortize the cost of generating validity proofs across many transactions. Therefore, unlike many blockchains, they actually get cheaper to use as they scale.
