Scroll Joins Chainlink SCALE To Support Developer Innovation And Ecosystem Growth

The Chainlink SCALE (Sustainable Chainlink Access for Layer 1 and 2 Enablement) program is designed to accelerate the growth of blockchain and layer-2 ecosystems by giving developers enhanced access to Chainlink’s industry-leading web3 services.

Today, Scroll, a fully EVM-equivalent zkRollup, announced it’s partnering with Chainlink Labs and joining SCALE to accelerate adoption of its native zkEVM Ethereum scaling solution. As part of SCALE, Scroll will cover certain operating costs of Chainlink oracle nodes for a period of time while developers gain access to the web3 infrastructure needed to build innovative applications on Scroll.

Scroll’s zkEVM-based zkRollup combines zero-knowledge proofs and zkRollup technology to support feature-rich decentralized applications (dApps) with enhanced scalability, privacy, and cost-efficiency alongside the Ethereum network’s security.

In an official announcement, Scroll co-founder and Head of Engineering Haichen Shen said Chainlink’s oracle services will play a foundational role in Scroll’s open, community-driven effort to scale Ethereum.

“We are excited to work with Chainlink Labs to bring best-in-class oracle services to leading DeFi applications building on Scroll,” Shen said. “With its focus on Ethereum scalability and security, Scroll is the default destination for DeFi applications that need Chainlink oracles to function.”

The ultimate goal of SCALE is to facilitate a sustainable economic model in which a network’s dApps generate sufficient revenue from user fees to fully cover the backend costs of oracle services. As more blockchain networks securely scale through Chainlink’s oracles, the cryptoeconomic security of the Chainlink Network and the entire web3 ecosystem follows suit.

“Scroll joining the Chainlink SCALE program is a great driver to help propel the adoption of the zkEVM layer-2 network,” said Johann Eid, Chief Business Officer at Chainlink Labs. “By aligning the Chainlink and Scroll ecosystems, this collaboration supports developer innovation and fosters the creation of applications that underpin the long-term growth of the Scroll ecosystem.”
