The community, fully empowered

If you hold zkEVM, you can temporarily lock them up to contribute to the security of the zkEVM Chain using a mechanism calling Staking. In exchange for locking your zkEVM, you receive rewards in newly minted zkEVM and a share of the transaction, trading a fees that are collected by the blockchain. By staking zkEVM, you are able to vote in zkEVM governance decisions.


All zkEVM stakers are eligible to vote on governance proposals and an individual's voting power is determined by the amount of zkEVM staked. If a staker chooses not to exercise their vote, validators are able to submit a proxy vote on the staker's behalf. Thus, all stakers are encouraged to participate in the governance process and exercise their votes on proposals.
