Dear Tron Community,
We’re pleased to inform you that we have made good progress and deployed zkBob on Tron mainnet which is now accessible at https://tron.zkbob.com/
Due to several limitations of Tron network, we have been forced to make some compromises for this early beta deployment of zkBob on the Tron mainnet. The current beta deployment of zkBob operates on a custodial basis, with off-chain proof calculations. This means that, unlike our deployments on Polygon and Optimism where proof checks are conducted on-chain, the Tron version will have transfer and tree update proof checks disabled in the contract. The sole verification will be performed off-chain by a relayer.
We acknowledge that this approach, while operationally efficient, may not be ideal but this solution is offering a degree of privacy and our goal is to evolve the platform towards a non-custodial model as it is currently the case for zkBob on Polygon and Optimism.
This interim method is primarily chosen for its simplicity and to facilitate a seamless user experience during the beta phase. It is a temporary measure, that enabled us to launch zkBob on the Tron mainnet promptly and thoroughly test all protocol functionalities. At the same time, we are working with the core Tron dev team to deploy a more decentralized solution with on-chain proof calculations. These efforts can be followed here: Tron Issue 1 and Tron Issue 2
To celebrate the launch of zkBob protocol on the Tron mainnet, we are holding a raffle for 500 USDT tokens!
Here’s what you need to do to participate:
- Go to https://tron.zkbob.com and create your zkBob account
- Copy your zkAddress (not 0x address) and paste it under the forum post
- We will conclude the raffle on January 16 at 4 PM UTC. Then we will collect all addresses and send everyone an equal part of the pool prize. (Example: If 20 people participate in the raffle, each will receive 25 USDT)
We would really appreciate if you could help to spread out the word about zkBob on Twitter and any other social media channels.
Thank you for your continued support and for joining us on this path toward a more private and efficient blockchain experience.
