Taiko Review

Taiko is a fully permissionless and decentralized ZK-Rollup equivalent to Ethereum. This means that using Taiko is the same as using Ethereum. Taiko not only supports all EVM opcodes, but also a full client API for performing JSON-RPC.

The project is an L2 that gets its security from Ethereum. It does not have a centralized sequencer or verifiers, all operations are performed without permission and are managed by the community.

Taiko offers different rollup solutions such us:

  • Based Contestable Rollup with a modular, multi-proof design;
  • Based Booster Rollup that scales natively and composes synchronously.

Taiko Bridge provides a simple solution for bridging assets across chains. There are two variations of bridging: token and NFT.

Since 2022, the project has had six successful Taiko testnets involving over 1,200,000+ unique wallets, 30,000+ proposers, and 14,000+ provers.

Recently, the Taiko crypto project launched its Mainnet.

On May 22, 2024, it was announced that Taiko Airdrop is live. Users have 7 days to check their eligibility. Rewards claim will be available on June 5, 2024. Eligible users will have one month to claim their tokens.
