Zero-knowledge, evolved

Linea’s cutting-edge cryptographically secure zk infrastructure provides the foundation of the safest place to interact with web3.

  • Linea uses zkSNARK proofs to verify the computational integrity of every Linea transaction on Ethereum

  • Linea’s award winning, recursion-friendly, lattice-based prover is more performant than standard schemes ensuring high levels of cryptographic security with low gas fees

  • Linea adopts a research-directed approach to ensuring overall integrity. For example, by applying formal verification at multiple levels, such as the on-chain PLONK verifier and the ZK arithmetisation.

  • Linea is the first zkEVM to introduce more than one execution client. Our multi-client, multi-prover roadmap removes the risk of a single point of failure, creating a more secure execution environment for the ecosystem
