Advantages Of Determinism For ZK Rollups On Cardanoe

Cardano transactions rarely fail because validation is not dependent on a shared global state. This is a key distinction between Cardano’s UTxO model and Ethereum’s account-based model. Cardano’s approach allows for predictable and deterministic transaction validation and script execution. The outcome is known in advance, which is particularly beneficial for the implementation of ZK Rollups. These can be implemented without the need for centralized sequencers. In this article, we will first delve into an explanation of determinism and the reasons why transactions on Ethereum can fail. Then we explain the fundamental principles of ZK Rollups on Ethereum. Following that, we will explore how ZK Rollups could differ within the Cardano ecosystem.
