Taiko Alpha-1 Testnet


Taiko's Alpha-1 first public Testnet is now live! They’ve codenamed this Testnet, Snæfellsjökull. Be on the lookout for other Icelandic volcano releases as the mainnet launch approaches!

Taiko is thrilled to reach this milestone with the ultimate goal of scaling Ethereum in a manner that is as secure and seamless for developers and users as possible. There is still a long way to go, but they hope you will join them in using and testing the first public Testnet release. 

About Taiko

Taiko is a fully decentralized, Ethereum-equivalent ZK-Rollup that scales Ethereum in a manner that emulates Ethereum as closely as possible – both technically and non-technically – by supporting all ZK-EVM opcodes in a layer-2 architecture that is decentralized, permissionless, and secure. 

Vitalik Buterin called the development of Taiko "Fascinating Work". Taiko aims to be a Type-1 ZK-EVM, prioritising perfect EVM/Ethereum equivalence over ZK-proof generation speed.
