What is Cronos zkEVM Tethys testnet?

Cronos zkEVM is a zero-knowledge (ZK) layer-2 blockchain network secured by Ethereum, that represents a significant milestone on Cronos’ journey towards scalability and mainstream adoption.

The Cronos zkEVM project is a ZK Chain using ZK Stack, launched in a partnership between Cronos Labs and engineering teams from Matter Labs (the team behind zkSync), Crypto.com, VVS Finance, Fulcrom Finance and Veno Finance.

Cronos zkEVM is currently in testnet: none of the cryptocurrencies acquired or exchanged on the network have any monetary value.

There will be some kinks to be ironed out, and potential outages for short durations as the testnet is constantly upgraded.

The documentation of Cronos zkEVM is available here: https://docs-zkevm.cronos.org/

Why quests?

The main goal of the quests is to get #CROFam familiar with the Cronos zkEVM (Layer 2) network and its interactions with the underlying Ethereum (Layer 1) network.

What tasks do the quests involve?

The quests are be powered by Galxe. On Galxe’s Cronos page, you will be able to retrieve the β€œCronos zkEVM Tethys Testnet Quests” quest collection which lays out links to the various activities.

Are there rewards?

Quests are rewarded by Galxe points.

Users who complete all quests will be eligible for an original commemorative Cronos zkEVM NFT.

Preliminary plans are being drawn out so that these points can be transferred into a future Cronos zkEVM user reward program to be announced in the near future.

Are there mechanisms in place to keep bots / sybil users away?

Yes. Thanks to various AI-based systems, users who are suspected of creating multiple wallets to collect points will eventually be excluded from the reward program.
