“Because the very starting, the final word imaginative and prescient for Matter Labs has been to incubate, launch, and in the end decentralize the zkSync protocol and ZK Stack. In one other transfer towards this imaginative and prescient, Matter Labs is stepping again from managing zkSync’s quickly rising ecosystem.”

The press launch goes on to say that “decentralization comes from regularly subtracting Matter Labs from the constructing of the tech and stewardship of the ecosystem.”

These adjustments are in accordance with the zkSync credo, a doc drafted in June exemplifying the beliefs of the zkSync group, and its rules of “trustlessness” and “sovereignty.”
