    Episode 194: zkEVM with Jordi & David from Hermez

    Episode 194: zkEVM with Jordi & David from Hermez

    This week, Anna chats with Jordi Baylina and David Schwartz from Hermez about their zkEVM design that was first revealed at EthCC. Jordi and David explain the design choices such as why they push for recreating the EVM, how it’s done at a technical level and how Hermez’s approach is different from other zk teams like Matter Labs and StarkWare.


    The original recording was done before the news of the merger with Polygon came out, so the trio came back together for a brief chat about what it means and how the zk space evolved in the past three years!


    Here are a few links for this episode:

    Finally, we have a site that brings together all the different parts of the ZK Community: podcast episodes, upcoming and past events, blog, social channels and more.


    We also have a new updated ZK Jobs Board featuring zk focused job opportunities, as well as a new ZK Community Forum where we can share new research!

    Have a look around. And let us know what you think about the site on Twitter or Telegram
