Cointelegraph is launching Zero Boundaries, a particular six-part podcast collection in collaboration with StarkWare. The collection, which options as a part of the Decentralize with Cointelegraph podcast, will discover the evolving world of zero-knowledge rollups (ZK-rollups) and the subsequent steps for the adoption of blockchain expertise.
All through the collection, three totally different hosts from the Cointelegraph group will likely be joined by totally different company from the StarkWare ecosystem. Zero-knowledge protocols or rollups have change into a distinguished layer-2 scaling function within the crypto ecosystem, particularly for the Ethereum blockchain.
Within the first episode, titled: “How blockchain is taking over the world,” StarkWare CEO and co-founder Uri Kolodny sits down with its chief architect Eli Ben-Sasson to discover the way forward for Ethereum and why they consider within the success of blockchain expertise. The episode is co-hosted with Nathan Jeffay of StarkWare.
ZK expertise permits one social gathering to show the existence of data to a different social gathering with out revealing the info itself. A number of scaling answer suppliers have developed their very own ZK-rollup protocols, with StarkWare launching Starknet in November 2021.
Starknet is a decentralized validity rollup or ZK-rollup, which operates as an Ethereum layer 2, enabling any app to scale on the community. Just lately, Starknet moved one step nearer to becoming fully Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) compatible, pending an August testnet launch of Kakarot, a brand new zero-knowledge EVM.
ZK-rollups improve throughput on the Ethereum mainnet by transferring computation and state storage off-chain. The expertise can course of hundreds of transactions per second (TPS), enormously bettering the roughly 30 TPS dealt with by the Ethereum mainnet. And it could actually obtain this with out sharing delicate transaction information, making it a distinguished privacy-focused scaling answer.
ZK has emerged as an efficient scaling expertise, and this podcast collection goals to supply unique insights into the ZK ecosystem from these constructing the expertise. Tune in and hearken to the Zero Boundaries collection on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, or your podcast platform of selection.
