Cointelegraph is launched Zero barriera special six-part podcast series in collaboration with starware. The series, which is part of Decentralize with Cointelegraph podcast, will explore the evolving world of zero-knowledge rollups (ZK-rollups) and the next steps for blockchain technology adoption.
Throughout the series, three different hosts from the Cointelegraph team will be joined by different guests from the StarkWare ecosystem. Zero-knowledge protocols or rollups have become a prominent layer 2 scaling feature in the crypto ecosystem, especially for the Ethereum blockchain.
In the first episode, titled: “How Blockchain is Taking the World,” StarkWare CEO and co-founder Uri Kolodny sits down with its chief architect Eli Ben-Sasson to explore the future of Ethereum and why. they believe in the success of blockchain. technology. The episode is co-hosted with StarkWare’s Nathan Jeffay.
ZK technology allows one party to prove the existence of information to another party without revealing the data itself. Several scaling solution vendors have developed their own ZK deployment protocols, with StarkWare launching Starknet in November 2021.
Starknet is a decentralized validity rollup or ZK-rollup, which works as an Ethereum 2 layer, allowing any application to fit on the network. Recently, Starknet took a step closer to becoming fully compatible with the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM), pending the August launch of Kakarot, a new zero-knowledge EVM.
ZK rollups increase throughput on the Ethereum mainnet by moving compute and state storage off-chain. The technology can process thousands of transactions per second (TPS), significantly improving the approximately 30 TPS managed by the Ethereum mainnet. And it can achieve this without sharing sensitive transaction data, making it a privacy-focused scaling solution.
ZK has become an efficient scaling technology, and this podcast series aims to offer exclusive insights into the ZK ecosystem to those building the technology. Stay tuned!
