Consensys and Mastercard

ConsenSys is an Ethereum blockchain software company. And they are partnering with Mastercard to launch the new tool called “ConsenSys Rollups”.

ConsenSys Rollups is a unique software solution for permissioned blockchain applications. It has a focus on scalability and privacy. In fact, it can be linked to any Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM)-compatible blockchain. Above all, ConsenSys Rollups are compatible with the Ethereum Mainnet as well as private ConsenSys Quorum networks.

ConsenSys Rollups enable the implementation of new and innovative use cases. These use cases are:

  • Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC)
    First, ConsenSys Rollups enable central banks, commercial banks, and retail users to scale and protect their data
  • Decentralized Exchange (DEX)
    Next, DEX created with Rollups brings scalability to Decentralized Finance (DeFi) and NFTs
  • Micropayments
    Third, With the Rollups on the mainnet, Ethereum can be scale to meet the demands of the new Web3 economic paradigm. For example, fulfill payments without network congestion, high fees, or finality challenges
  • Private transfer and taxes
    Lastly, The rollup opens up a new privacy model on the Ethereum mainnet or quorum-based network. So partially anonymous rollups allow users to transfer or exchange tokens and make partially anonymous transactions.

ConsenSys pointed out that the system built with Rollups can reach a throughput of 10,000 transactions per second (TPS) on the private chain. Without Rollups, the transaction throughput of these private chains is only 300 TPS. In addition, the capacity of the Ethereum mainnet is lower, only 15 TPS.

Vitalik Buterin, co-founder of Ethereum, thinks that Ethereum is too slow and limited in what it can do at the moment. The volume of new financial transactions and data transfers on the network has caused the transaction fees to soar. He proposed Rollups as one way to scale Ethereum 100x.
