The introduction of Pudgy World Alpha powered by zkSync in early 2024 is poised to have a positive impact on the NFT market.

The utilization of zkSync technology enhances scalability and efficiency, addressing common challenges such as high gas fees and slow transaction processing on the Ethereum network.
