ZKsync, a prominent layer-2 scaling solution for Ethereum, recently unveiled its roadmap for ZKsync 3.0. This upgrade introduces an innovative concept called the "Elastic Chain," which bears a striking resemblance to Polygon's "AggLayer" launched earlier in 2024.

The core of ZKsync 3.0 lies in the v24 upgrade, transforming ZKsync from a single chain into a multifaceted "Elastic Chain." This network offers infinite scalability by incorporating various ZK-powered chains (rollups, validiums, and volitions) under a unified user experience.

This approach aligns with a current trend in blockchain technology: fostering seamless interoperability between different ecosystems. Interestingly, Polygon adopted a similar concept with their AggLayer, highlighting a potential competition brewing in the layer-2 arena.

Matter Labs, the development team behind ZKsync, describes the Elastic Chain as having three key components, but details remain undisclosed for now. With both ZKsync and Polygon vying for dominance in the layer-2 space, the coming months will likely see exciting developments in scalability solutions for the Ethereum blockchain.
