    Episode 113: Latest recursive SNARKitecture with Izaak Meckler from O(1)Labs

    Episode 113: Latest recursive SNARKitecture with Izaak Meckler from O(1)Labs

    In this week’s episode, we catch up with Izaak Meckler from 0(1) Labs to talk about launching a recursive snark based incentivised test net, a recap of recursive SNARKs, updates on the working SNARKitecture, and a look at what's next for the project. We also touch on some new use-cases and ideas for how zkps may be a component in making computer programmes potentially more accountable to their users.


    Please listen to our earlier episode with Izaak and Evan to get a full picture of 0(1)Labs and the Coda project


    Here are a few of the other projects we mentioned!
    ZEXE
    Marlin
    Fractal
    Notes from the SNARKoconomicon at the zkSummit

    Episode 112: Dive into Plonk!

    Episode 112: Dive into Plonk!

    In this week’s episode, we learn more about Plonk with Ariel Gabizon and Zac Williamson from Aztec. PLONK is a recent highly efficient, universal SNARK construction. We explore what distinguishes Plonk from some other other new constructions including their focus on Lagrange-bases to deconstruct complex problem statements into simple polynomial identities.


    This episode goes very deep and so we do recommend you check out a few of previous episodes to help you follow along! All mentioned can be found here along with the other deep zk-topic episodes: https://www.zeroknowledge.fm/zkseries


    Here is Justin Drake Polynomial commitment schemes study club video, as well as videos from the zkSummit on Marlin and Supersonics


    Ariel also mentions the [Bayer groth permutation argument](www0.cs.ucl.ac.uk/staff/J.Groth/MinimalShuffle.pdf) which influenced their work.




    Thanks to this week's sponsor Nucypher!


    On January 20th, NuCypher's incentivized testnet is launching on Coinlist. This incentivised testnet has the motto "Come and Stake It”!


    If you are interested, be sure to pre-register now. Keep an eye on their blog for launch date, structure, and prize details. All winners will need to complete KYC/AML. Please go to [nucypher.com](nucypher.com) to sign up.
