Characteristics of the Citrea blockchain. In short:

  • Type 2 zkEVM

  • Sequencer with a block producing privilege, inscribing state roots on Bitcoin to finalize ordering.

  • Prover with a responsibility of producing batch proofs and light client proofs, both via scanning Bitcoin blockspace.

  • Full and light nodes are able to easily and securely verify the blockchain.

  • Bitcoin Settlement via BitVM. Citrea proofs are optimistically verified in Bitcoin, enabling the first universal trust-minimized bridge.
