Description

Zero Knowledge is a podcast which goes deep into the tech that will power the emerging Web3 and the community researching and building this. The podcast is made for fellow developers and people looking to educate themselves on the inner workings of the space.
We are non-speculative and focus on the tech.
Zero Knowledge is hosted by Anna Rose and Fredrik Harryson, two people working in the blockchain industry. Our views do not come from nor represent our companies.

In this episode, we sit down with Alexander Skidanov (https://twitter.com/AlexSkidanov) and Illia Polosukhin (https://twitter.com/ilblackdragon) from Near Protocol (https://nearprotocol.com/) to find out about their work. We discuss what brought them to develop Near Protocol, how they used their whiteboard sessions to learn from the best people in the space, the challenge of blockchain UX, and what has motivated them to become one of the fastest moving projects around.Links: Near for developers: https://studio.nearprotocol.com/Whiteboard session: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL9tzQn_TEuFWweVbfTbaedFdwVrvaYPq4Thank you to this week's sponsor Trail of Bits (trailofbits.com)Trail of Bits recently releases their smart contract audit executive summary. They aggregated the work of 23 smart contract audits and found that 78% of high impact, easily exploitable findings are discoverable with automated analysis tools, 50% of all findings will never be found with automated tools, and Unit testing has no impact on securityFor more on this audit, have a look at their latest blog posthttps://blog.trailofbits.com/2019/08/08/246-findings-from-our-smart-contract-audits-an-executive-summary/If you like what we do: Follow us on Twitter - @zeroknowledgefm (https://twitter.com/zeroknowledgefm)Join us on Telegram (https://t.me/joinchat/B_81tQ57-ThZg8yOSx5gjA)Support our Gitcoin Grant (https://gitcoin.co/grants/38/zero-knowledge-podcast)Support us on the ZKPatreon (https://www.patreon.com/zeroknowledge)Or directly here: ETH: 0xC0FFEE1B5083230a5154F55f253B6b6ae8F29B1aBTC: 1cafekGa3podM4fBxPSQc6RCEXQNTK8ZzZEC: t1R2bujRF3Hzte9ALHpMJvY8t5kb9ut9SpQ

In this episode, Anna chats with Robert Habermeier (https://twitter.com/rphmeier), one of the co-founders of Polkadot and an engineer at Parity Technology, about his early experience with Rust and cryptography, as well as the work he did at Parity on Warp Sync and Lightclients. We then discuss how this helped inspire some of the concepts and design of the Polkadot protocol. We also chat about some of the exciting concepts that he is discovering along the way - such as new architectures to promote interchain security, Trust Wormholes and more!

In this week's episode we chat with two of the people behind the Graphene project (https://grapheneproject.io/), Chia-Che Tsai of Texas A&M University and Golem developer Lukasz Glen, about TEEs, Intel® Software Guard Extensions (Intel® SGX), and the way the Graphene project aims to make it easier for devs to interact with these hardware enclaves.Graphene (https://grapheneproject.io/) started as a research project at Stony Brook University, led by Chia-Che Tsai and Don Porter, about emerging hardware platforms. In 2015, Intel Labs recognized the potential for Graphene to be an open-source compatibility layer for Intel® SGX, and has contributed to Graphene development since. With Golem and Invisible Things Lab (ITL), the Graphene project has also been now used within a decentralised blockchain context. The security around TEEs is a hotly debated topic (at least in our community) and we delve into the questions around these with our guests. That said, we do see this as the first of a series of episodes where we explore the challenges and advantages of using TEEs. https://grapheneproject.io/Thank you to this week's sponsor Apograf!
