Banxa Announces Layer 2 Partnership With zkSync
We are thrilled to announce our partnership with zkSync, a trustless protocol for scalable low-cost payments on Ethereum, which will accelerate secure access to Layer 2 (L2) for the Ethereum network.
Banxa and zkSync’s partnership provides access to a scalable L2 solution for both users and developers. L2 significantly lowers fees to a fraction of traditional pricing and halves transaction times, enhancing the user experience.
Removing Friction and Complexity
zkSync is a trustless protocol for scalable, low-cost payments on Ethereum, powered by zkRollup technology. Focused on security and user experience for developers zkSync combines zero-knowledge proofs with blockchain technology to eliminate friction and complexity.
“The crypto market is ever-evolving and by removing barriers such as friction and complexity, this will improve user and developer experience on L2,” said Jan Hartmann, Strategy at Banxa Labs. “We’re excited to be partnering with zkSync to accelerate secure access to L2 for the Ethereum network. This will create a multitude of opportunities for users and developers as we work together to provide innovative solutions for the crypto ecosystem.”

Banxa’s market-leading range of currencies and payment methods, including credit card and bank transfers, will enable zkSync’s users to purchase on L2 easily. Launching direct fiat purchasing, Banxa is leading the industry, helping to scale the Ethereum ecosystem and opening up the market for mass adoption.
“We are excited Banxa has chosen zkSync to provide users and developers with greater flexibility and access to L2,” said Jon Rogers, Head of Brand and Communications for Matter Labs. “zkSync offers a superior user experience with a potent mix of capital efficiency and speed while enjoying the full benefits of Ethereum’s security guarantees.”
In celebration of this launch, Banxa is offering fee-free purchasing on Layer 2 with zkSync, available for 2 weeks from 22 December. User fees will be waived, however, standard payment surcharges will apply, such as credit card transaction fees. This offer is now available to all zkSync users.
