A new era: Safe deploys on zkSync Era

Our blog is live! Read this article on our Safe Blog.

We are excited to announce that Safe, the most battle-tested smart wallet infrastructure, has integrated with zkSync Era to bring secure smart wallet experiences to the zkSync Era ecosystem.

The zkSync Era network has had an early commitment to transitioning to smart accounts, being the only zk-EVM network supporting native account abstraction enshrined in the consensus layer of the chain itself.

The Safe rollout on the chain furthers this commitment. Developers can now tap into the security and flexibility of Safe’s contracts to build new and improved web2-like account-abstracted experiences for users.

Safe{Wallet}, known as critical infrastructure for teams to manage onchain treasuries (with multisig), as well as Safe{Core} account abstraction stack, is available on zkSync Era from Sep 11, 2023.

What's in it for you?

  • Gold standard for treasury asset management: From treasury tasks to governance, Safe{Wallet} on zkSync Era makes asset management and coordination fast and secure.

  • Boosting developers: With the Safe{Core} developer kit, builders can leverage one of the industry’s most trusted smart contracts to build novel use-cases on zkSync Era with no compromise on security.

Native Account Abstraction on zkSync Era

A Layer-2 solution that utilises ZK technology to scale Ethereum, zkSync Era is the first EVM-compatible chain to implement native account abstraction. Native account abstraction fundamentally changes how accounts operate on zkSync Era by allowing for various programmable customisations such as signature schemes, native multi-sig capabilities and spending limits.

zkSync Era is committed to advancing personal freedom for all and to make digital self-ownership universally accessible by building a blockchain network that is trustless, secure, permissionless, affordable, easy to use, resilient, and limitlessly scalable.

Why Safe?

With $50B worth of digital assets under management, Safe is the most trusted decentralised custody protocol and collective asset management platform on Ethereum and the EVM. At the same time, Safe{Core} is changing the game for web3 builders. This groundbreaking Safe{Core} SDK, shaped alongside industry leaders such as Stripe, Gelato, and Web3Auth, arms developers with the tools they need to successfully implement account abstraction in their projects.

Whether you're building out a use case in gaming, NFTs, or decentralised social platforms, it just got a whole lot easier for your project to benefit from account abstraction.

Making Smart Accounts the L2 standard

Safe’s modular smart accounts infrastructure with zkSync Era’s baked-in, native account abstraction support both push forward the vision that for self-custody to become mainstream, usability has to be improved through better UX experiences that abstract away pain points such as gas fees, account recovery and seed phrases.

"zkSync Era rollout is part of bringing Safe onto L2s and ensuring that smart accounts are the standard on L2s. We prioritised zkSync as they share this vision and implement smart accounts natively on the network. Our modular stack will greatly benefit the use cases being built including gaming, DeFi, and other user experiences that need security and flexibility along with efficiency and cost that zkSync Era provides.” - Lukas Schor, Co-Founder of Safe

“User experience in crypto remains one of the biggest obstacles to mass adoption, and smart account support fixes this. Making better tools and core infrastructure available for developers and projects that support Account Abstraction will lead to drastically improved user experiences and give light to new use cases. As one of the most critical pieces of infrastructure in the Web3 ecosystem, the integration of Safe{Wallet} and Safe{Core} will be a game changer for the developer experience and the broader ecosystem as a result.” – Marco Cora, SVP of Business and Operations
