It is the freshly introduced ConsenSys zkEVM private beta testnet, which happens to be akin to the EVM, and can, from this moment on, be fully accessed on Infura. However, this is only in the case of certain chosen few applicants. In this very case scenario, participants related to the testnet will find themselves in the position of effectively connecting the assets between the Goerli testnet with that of the zkEVM.
This activity will take place to correctly test their smart contracts and dapps using the available tools, associated framework, and commonly used wallets. Unique systems related to combining the presently available Ethereum tools will help towards the decentralization of Ethereum. However, the fact remains that the transaction-related fees will be extremely low.
The team at ConsenSys is pleased to have made this official announcement, but at the same time, they are also reaching out to the concerned community regarding their valuable feedback. However, this is about understanding whether the exposure, where the developer experience of the zkEVM is concerned, can enhance and quicken the process of innovation in all of the matters related to Web3. All of this information gathered will then lead them to the next step.
