You can use the Goerli faucet to claim free test coins.
Scroll is an innovative Layer-2 technology designed to provide limitless scalability, rapid confirmation times, complete decentralization, and secure privacy. Building on zk-Rollup and high-performance off-chain systems, it introduces a novel hierarchical zero-knowledge proof system that enables the seamless integration of the most popular DApps onto Layer 2 and efficient verification through compact proofs. By employing groundbreaking cryptographic protocols, Scroll establishes effective communication channels between DApps and their counterparts on other Layer 2 platforms, fostering the development of an open and comprehensive Layer 2 ecosystem. Scroll also pioneers Layer 2 mining, a sturdy and permissionless mining system that encourages miners to produce zero-knowledge proofs for the platform while mitigating the issue of MEV by separating transaction packaging from the mining process.
Scroll does not have a native token yet, but it allows for sending and receiving Scroll test coins on its testnet. If you do not have any tokens on the Scroll network, you can request free test coins using the Goerli faucet. Scroll is expected to have a native token for governance, incentivization, and protocol upgrades when it becomes fully decentralized. Early contributors of Scroll, such as validators, users, and donators, may potentially receive the native token as a reward through airdrop in the future.
Scroll is currently available on testnet. The developer of Scroll is now running Alpha Testnet features participation across validators, full node operators, delegators, app builders, and end users.
The simplest way to start using Scroll is by creating a Scroll Wallet in BitKeep, which can be installed via Google Play, App Store, or a Chrome extension. After installation, create a crypto wallet on the Scroll mainnet and make transactions in Scroll test coins.
