    ZK Proof Aggregation with Garvit Goel of Electron Labs

    ZK Proof Aggregation with Garvit Goel of Electron Labs

    Electron Labs aggregates zero-knowledge proofs across protocols into a single superproof, which is then verified on Ethereum. Thanks to the use of recursive ZK proofs, this collective approach lowers verification costs to less than 1% of current rates. This is a huge unlock for applications leveraging ZK: Privacy, micro rollups, DA bridges, IBC, and more.

    Securing Cosmos Chains with Celestia DA - Jack Zampolin of Rollchains & Strangelove

    Securing Cosmos Chains with Celestia DA - Jack Zampolin of Rollchains & Strangelove

    Rollchains introduce new ways to build, maintain and scale Cosmos chains. New and existing Cosmos SDK chains can enable the Rollchains module to post block data to Celestia. Built with POA chains in mind, Rollchains promises to reduce the cost of securing chains while maintaining a high Nakamoto coefficient, potentially transforming the tokenomics of chains that struggle to cover the inflationary cost of maintaining a validator set.

    The Future of DAO Governance with Nicolas Biagosch of Q Protocol

    The Future of DAO Governance with Nicolas Biagosch of Q Protocol

    Q protocol is a decentralized governance layer for Web3 that allows developers to build organizational constitutions that are enforced by smart contracts and include off-chain avenues for resolving disputes the code can't deal with. Built as a fully EVM-compatible Layer 1 for maximum security, the protocol is live with a full set of infra and applications supporting the ecosystem. It prevents governance exploits and reduces legal and regulatory risks associated with centralized decision making.

    Cosmos Hub ICS Security Marketplace with Jehan Tremback of Informal Systems

    Cosmos Hub ICS Security Marketplace with Jehan Tremback of Informal Systems

    Informal Systems is a Cosmos contributor that works on the Cosmos Hub, which is the first blockchain in the Interchain. The Cosmos Hub is one of thousands of blockchains that will eventually make up the Cosmos Network. The Hub's primary token is ATOM, but it will support many other tokens in the future. Interchain Security is one of the main services the Cosmos Hub provides. It enables other blockchains to be secured through Proof-of-Stake (PoS) by the ATOM token, which holds one of the largest market capitalizations in the interchain ecosystem.

    FAIR TOKEN LAUNCHES with Simon Chadwick of Eclipse

    FAIR TOKEN LAUNCHES with Simon Chadwick of Eclipse

    Eclipse Fi is a revolutionary hub for interchain token launches, bringing the value back into the hands of early communities. Eclipse Mainnet, launching in Q1 2024, is the fastest Ethereum L2, powered by the SVM. With an architecture that combines the best pieces of the modular stack, developers get all the benefits of dedicated throughput with none of the downsides. Eclipse makes it possible to build applications that can coordinate masses of people and scale with any developer’s needs.
