Projects that use or built on it
- StarkWare and Matter Labs can be seen as Scroll's closest competitors — both use the zk-rollup scaling technique. From The Block (21-4-2022)
"When asked what Scroll's unique advantage over StarkWare is, Peng said, "we are building a zkEVM solution as opposed to StarkWare's zkVM. That means developers in the Scroll ecosystem will enjoy an 'EVM [[[Ethereum]] Virtual Machine] equivalent' experience; any dapp that runs on zk Layer 1 can be deployed on Scroll," she said. As for Matter Labs’ zkSync network, it also has EVM compatibility like Scroll, but Scroll is more developer-friendly, according to Peng."

"Scroll has raised $30 million in Series A funding. Scroll said Polychain Capital led the funding, with Bain Capital Crypto, Robot Ventures, Geometry DAO and others participating. Several angel investors, including the Ethereum Foundation's Ying Tong and Carlos Aria, and members of the Ethereum community, including Anthony Sassal, Ryan Adams and Santiago Santos, also joined the round. Scroll co-founder Sandy Peng declined to comment on whether the funding was raised via an equity round or a simple agreement for future tokens (SAFT) sale. The Series A round brings Scroll's total funding to date to around $33 million. The project has previously raised about $3 million from angel investors, Peng said."
