Ethereum Layer 2 scaling solution zkSync has announced a major upgrade called Boojum, which is a Rust-based cryptographic library. This upgrade is expected to significantly improve efficiency and reduce hardware requirements for achieving decentralization. The Boojum upgrade will boost the current transaction processing speed of zkSync, which is 100 transactions per second (TPS), to much higher levels. The protocol aims to enable user-powered decentralized proof generation, and Boojum represents a breakthrough in this direction. The implementation of the upgrade is not expected to negatively impact the network. The Boojum upgrade is now resident on the mainnet, allowing shadow-proofing of transactions for testing before a full migration.
