As always in crypto and DeFi, you should do your own research before using a product. These include smart contract vulnerabilities and the economics of the protocols involved. 

How zkSync 1.0 works with Argent

ZkSync is just getting started and smart contracts are coming with version 2.0 in 2022 - until then, we’ve partnered with leading DeFi providers to bring a selection of popular investment options and utilize atomic swaps on zkSync - a trustless, peer-to-peer way to swap tokens between two parties.
