Binance Labs Invests In Zircuit To Advance L2 With AI-Enabled Sequencer Level Security

chainwire

Binance Labs, the venture capital and incubation arm of Binance, has invested in Zircuit, a zero-knowledge rollup with AI-enabled sequencer-level security.

Zircuit is a new Layer 2 (L2) network that introduces a novel approach to on-chain security. The network safeguards users with sequencer-level security and built-in, automated AI mechanisms that guard against smart contract exploits and malicious actors. The network’s hybrid architecture, which combines battle-tested rollup infrastructure with zero-knowledge proofs, results in a fast, low-cost, and fully EVM-compatible ZK rollup to provide unparalleled security for users without sacrificing speed or compatibility. More specifically, Zircuit’s performance comes from decomposing circuits into specialized parts and aggregating proofs, which achieves greater efficiency and lower operating costs.

Yi He, Co-Founder of Binance and Head of Binance Labs said: “At Binance Labs, we support projects that are innovating in Web3 and accelerating the blockchain industry. Through its integration of sequencer level security, Zircuit is providing a more secure L2 solution and we look forward to watching it grow and develop further.”

As Zircuit prepares to debut its mainnet this summer, its ecosystem is already demonstrating impressive growth. The network presently hosts over $3.5 billion in staked assets and its “Build to Earn” program has drawn more than 1,100 applications. Ethena, Renzo, Ether.fi, KelpDAO, Elixir, Ambient, Pendle, LayerZero, and others are among its launch partners.

“Zircuit was born out of cutting-edge scaling and security research. We’re innovating on top of a deep technical foundation, and making Ethereum safer for the next billion users. We’re thrilled to have Binance Labs join us in this journey”, said Dr. Martin Derka, Co-Founder of Zircuit.
