About this Episode

In this episode, we catch up with Justin Drake and Vitalik Buterin from the Ethereum Foundation to chat about how zero knowledge proof systems are being used throughout the Eth1x and Eth2.0 stacks. We look at their applications for privacy and scalability throughout layer 1, layer 1.5 and layer 2, as well as explore some other emerging applications.

Here were some of the articles and ideas discussed:

5 ways to optimise zkps:

  • Remove the need for FFTs
  • Sparseness
  • Recursion
  • Custom gates
  • Hardware
