We’re happy to announce that Cyfrin will collaborate closely with Matter Labs to launch extensive learning and security resources for builders on the zkSync ecosystem.

Cyfrin will support projects and developers building on zkSync in accessing high-quality public and private audits as well as top-notch smart contract development and security courses.

“Cyfrin’s curriculum covers two critical areas of the long-term growth of zkSync; on the one hand, their resources for both new and existing developers provide a fantastic platform to spark innovation and greater builder activity. On the other hand, Cyfrin’s deep emphasis on security through competitive and private audits, and their repository of security resources ensures that builders are equipped with a security-first mindset. Cyfrin will definitely help grow the security community.

Innovation without ever compromising on security is part of the DNA of Matter Labs, and we are thrilled to see teams like Cyfrin sharing these values.” - Anthony Rose, Chief Technology Officer of Matter Labs.

About zkSync

zkSync is the industry-leading zero-knowledge EVM-based rollup powering hundreds of protocols worldwide and designed to resolve Ethereum scalability issues, to make Ethereum faster and cheaper to use.

Curated by Matter Labs and in production since 2020, fully dedicated to providing a decentralized, trustless, reliable, hyper-scalable, accessible, and censorship-resistant ecosystem, zkSync leverages zero-knowledge proofs to enable fast, secure, and cost-effective transactions on the Ethereum blockchain, significantly reducing gas costs without sacrificing security or user control.

“Matter Labs' mission of scaling blockchains in a secure, reliable manner while maintaining an uncompromising commitment to decentralization and credible neutrality is a mission that Cyfrin is fully aligned with. zkSync's roadmap brings about the next evolution of the Ethereum ecosystem: onboarding orders of magnitude more usage. We are very excited to contribute towards that mission by helping onboard developers and protocols onto the platform in a security-conscious way.” - Alex Roan, Chief Technology Officer at Cyfrin
