zkSync Name Service(ZNS) Airdrop Programme

3 min readMar 29, 2023

The zkSync Name Service (ZNS) is a distributed, open, and extensible naming system based on the zkSync Era mainnet.

ZNS’s job is to map human-readable names like ‘zkSync.zk’ to machine-readable identifiers such as Ethereum addresses, other cryptocurrency addresses, content hashes, and metadata. ZNS also supports ‘reverse resolution’, making it possible to associate metadata such as canonical names or interface descriptions with Ethereum addresses.

ZNS is deployed on the zkSync Era and will launch on other networks. If you use a library such as the ensjs Javascript library, or an end-user application, it will automatically detect the network you are interacting with and use the ZNS deployment on that network.
