In this episode, we catch up with Vishwanath Raman (https://twitter.com/ramanvishwa?lang=en), Privacy Architect at Oasis Labs (https://www.oasislabs.com) where he works on privacy and confidentiality technologies for Direct to Consumer and Business to Business use cases. His interest and experience span formal methods, applied machine learning, security, and privacy. Vishwa got his PhD in Computer Science at UC Santa Cruz followed by postdoctoral work at Carnegie Mellon. The Oasis Network is a privacy-enabled blockchain platform for responsible data use. Using a combination of secure computing and privacy technologies, the Oasis Network enables data owners to take control of their data and treat their data as a digital asset via data tokenization. They provide privacy as a service and use secure enclaves and differential privacy in order build a platform for a responsible data economy. We dive into the way the Oasis system is architected for privacy, who the ideal customers are and what the use cases (https://medium.com/oasis-protocol-project) for this protocol is. We also chatted about some of the tradeoffs in using SGX as well as the recent Binance-led CryptoSafe Alliance announcement (https://medium.com/oasis-protocol-project/oasis-labs-joins-forces-with-binance-to-launch-cryptosafe-alliance-and-decentralized-platform-for-1e3964d8531) where Oasis is the primary infrastructure builder. Here are some of the papers and links that we discuss: Oasis Labs at zkSummit ZK0x02 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VIJSFc3Wom8&list=PLj80z0cJm8QEC-DUp0bvpy3p82kqfnvc-&index=7) Chorus: Differential Privacy via Query Rewriting (https://drive.google.com/file/d/1iA7uPfYuAE30M7yr0c6UVlYZlK1cye2F/view?usp=sharing) Towards Practical Differential Privacy for SQL Queries (https://drive.google.com/file/d/150H3NWdE-_gO8OYkUE3rwEK9gCXkhU4Z/view?usp=sharing) Problems with machine learning and privacy (https://drive.google.com/file/d/1DGulszw8a6lbKGs2O71p_nPc4XMdn3EV/view?usp=sharing) (one of many) Towards Practical Differentially Private Convex Optimization (https://drive.google.com/file/d/1AtxtG_5Ed0U4W6T3Fu-yLM7eu-5qIv9k/view?usp=sharing) One small correction: Vishwa mentions the number of Validators on Oasis as numbering in the hundreds, but upon checking, we were informed that the number of validators that will participate in the consensus committee at mainnet launch is 70-100. More details in the following blog post: https://docs.oasis.dev/oasis-network-primer/token-metrics-and-distribution Thank you to this week’s sponsor Trail of Bits (https://www.trailofbits.com/).

In this week’s special episode, we flip the script and invite our friend Alexandra Heller to ask ZKPodcast co-hosts Anna & Fredrik some questions from the audience.. It’s a bit of a different format, so hope you will enjoy! Here are a few of the episodes we mention: -Chatting about consensus algorithms with Robert Habermeier (https://www.zeroknowledge.fm/15) -Zooko talks Zcash on our 50th episode (https://www.zeroknowledge.fm/50) -Sean Bowe on SNARKs, Trusted Setups & Elliptic Curve Cryptography (https://www.zeroknowledge.fm/76) -A fireside chat with a couple Parity peeps (https://www.zeroknowledge.fm/5) -Isogenies with Luca De Feo (https://www.zeroknowledge.fm/117) -Statistical modeling of PoS systems with Tarun Chitra (https://www.zeroknowledge.fm/61) -Introduction to ZKPs (https://www.zeroknowledge.fm/21) And other podcasts we mention: -Bikeshed: https://www.bikeshed.fm -Distributed: https://distributed.blog/podcast/ -Extremities: https://anchor.fm/extremities -Accidental Tech: https://atp.fm -History of Rome: https://thehistoryofrome.typepad.com/ -Hardcore History: https://www.dancarlin.com/hardcore-history-series/ -Epicenter: https://epicenter.tv/ -Uncommon Core: https://uncommoncore.co/ Thanks to this week’s sponsor Aleo (https://aleo.org/) Aleo is the first platform for fully private applications. It uses blockchain and zero-knowledge cryptography to deliver a web experience that is both personal and private. With Aleo, developers can write private applications, without a background in blockchains or expertise in cryptography. Aleo has released Developer Preview I (https://developer.aleo.org/aleo/getting_started/overview/), an early peek at what the future of the web will look like. The release introduces a new programming language called Leo, a new community-driven package manager for Leo, and a new development environment or IDE called Aleo Studio (https://aleo.studio/). We recently had Howard Wu, a co-founder of Aleo, on the show for an interview - you can find that episode here (https://www.zeroknowledge.fm/144).

In this week's episode, Anna and Fredrik catch up with Jordi Baylina (https://twitter.com/jbaylina?lang=en), co-founder of Iden3 (https://iden3.io), the creator of Circom & SnarkJS. They chat about his work in the ecosystem, building zk circuits and the recently announced Hermez, a new zkrollup with a novel proof-of-donation mechanism that will redistribute 40% of earnings to Ethereum-based community projects. Jordi has an amazing story, which we got to explore in this episode, so thanks again Jordi for being on the show! Here are some relevant links: Jordi's talk about Circom at the zkSummit (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-9TJa1hVsKA) Iden3 Website (https://iden3.io) Circom on Github (https://github.com/iden3/circom) Hermez Website (https://hermez.io) & Twitter (https://twitter.com/hermez_network) His talk on Liquid Democracy at Web3 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P2L-8ZqZ7CI) Our previous episode about the DAO hack with Griff Green (https://www.zeroknowledge.fm/29) Thank you to this week's sponsor Parity Technologies (https://www.parity.io/) Parity is currently looking to fill a number of job positions including many on the engineering side. As an engineer at Parity, you would get to write Rust all day, be at the forefront of creating and shaping the decentralized web and hopefully also dig into some cool zero knowledge crypto tech! The best way to get noticed for this role is to familiarise yourself with Substrate (https://www.parity.io/substrate/) - the platform built by Parity to make building blockchains much much easier. So go check out the substrate libraries and then head over to parity.io/jobs (https://www.parity.io/jobs/) to find out more Thanks again Parity for sponsoring this episode!

In this episode, we invite Howard Wu (https://twitter.com/1howardwu) back to the show to share more about his new project Aleo (https://aleo.org/) - a privacy-focused blockchain that enables fully private applications. Howard's previous ZKPodcast episode, Introduction to zkSNARKs (https://www.zeroknowledge.fm/38), remains one of our most popular episodes to date! We chat about why you need programming languages for SNARKs, what it is like to switch from VC/Academia to being a founder and the two important things missing in web services, high programmability and true user privacy. The project enables private applications with both data privacy and functional privacy - where the nature of the program running and all activity remains private. It is based on the ZEXE protocol and Proof-of-Succinct-Work, from the Proof-of-Necessary-Work originally presented Joseph Bonneau & Akis Kattis For more info check out these additional links & episodes: - Aleo Developer Preview I (https://aleo.org/) - Zexe: Decentralized Private Computation with Pratyush Mishra (https://www.zeroknowledge.fm/85) - ZEXE paper (https://eprint.iacr.org/2018/962.pdf) - Proof-of-Necessary-Work with Akis Kattis (NYU) (https://www.zeroknowledge.fm/131) Thank you to this week’s sponsor Least Authority (https://leastauthority.com/).

In this episode we chat with Josh Cincinnati (https://twitter.com/acityinohio), the former executive director of Zcash Foundation (https://twitter.com/ZcashFoundation). We cover Josh's career before Zcash, his work at the foundation, the important role privacy plays in crypto and the challenges of decentralised governance. We also discuss his decision to leave the foundation, Zcash Foundation's philosophy of transparency, his hopes for the future of the Zcash community, his next steps and why he thinks people in crypto may wanna take themselves a bit less serious and remember to have some fun! Here are some additional links: Zcash Foundation (https://www.zfnd.org/) Josh’s parting letter (https://gist.github.com/acityinohio/8590e5384806090fbcf5609e613eae51) Previous episodes on Zcash with Zooko (https://www.zeroknowledge.fm/50), Sean Bowe (https://www.zeroknowledge.fm/76), Sean and Daira (https://www.zeroknowledge.fm/123) and Henry de Valence (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ly2QlBltDF0) Catch this cross-over appearance with Anna on Josh's Twodcast (https://twitter.com/acityinohio/status/1293582094581587969?s=20).

In this episode, Anna and guest host Georgios (https://twitter.com/gakonst) chat with Hasu (https://twitter.com/hasufl), an independent crypto researcher focused on economics and security, about elastic block size proposals in both Bitcoin and Ethereum. They cover how Hasu found his way into research as well as the history of the block size BIPs that shaped the ecosystem as well as Ethereum’s EIP 1559 Here are some additional links: Research paper: A model for Bitcoin’s security and the declining block subsidy (https://uncommoncore.co/research-paper-a-model-for-bitcoins-security-and-the-declining-block-subsidy/) Analysis of EIP-2593 (Escalator) (https://insights.deribit.com/market-research/analysis-of-eip-2593-escalator/) Analysis of EIP-1559 (https://insights.deribit.com/market-research/analysis-of-eip-1559/) Thank you to this week’s sponsor Trail of Bits. Trail of Bits found a bug in yVault that would have allowed an attacker to drain most (if not all) of the pool's assets. They quickly reported the bug to the yVault team and were able to secure the roughly $400K USD held in the system. This bug, which was thankfully caught, highlights the risk stemming from increased complexity caused by composition in the DeFi space. ‘ Generally - DeFi composability is hard. For example, If you integrate multiple tokens, any one token could compromise the security of your entire platform. On the other hand, if you integrate multiple platforms, your protocol could suffer from complex interactions. If this is a relevant topic for you or the project you work on, reach out to Trail of Bits to arrange a security assessment, or sign up for their Ethereum security office hours. Here is a link to their blog post “Accidentally stepping on a DeFi lego” https://blog.trailofbits.com/2020/08/05/accidentally-stepping-on-a-defi-lego Contact them here: https://www.trailofbits.com/contact/ 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) Catch us on Youtube (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYWsYz5cKw4wZ9Mpe4kuM_g) Read up on the r/ZKPodcast subreddit (https://www.reddit.com/r/zkpodcast) Give us feedback! https://forms.gle/iKMSrVtcAn6BByH6A Support our Gitcoin Grant (https://gitcoin.co/grants/329/zero-knowledge-podcast-2) Support us on the ZKPatreon (https://www.patreon.com/zeroknowledge) Or directly here: ETH: 0xC0FFEE1B5083230a5154F55f253B6b6ae8F29B1a BTC: 1cafekGa3podM4fBxPSQc6RCEXQNTK8Zz ZEC: t1R2bujRF3Hzte9ALHpMJvY8t5kb9ut9SpQ
In this week's episode, we chat with Brian Gu (https://twitter.com/bgu33), a student at MIT and creator of the Dark Forest (https://twitter.com/darkforest_eth) game. We chat about education, blockchain based games and what inspired his work on the Dark Forest game. We then dig into how this game creates an incomplete information game space by using zkSNARKs to create a “cryptographic fog of war” and more! As described on their blog, Dark Forest (https://blog.zkga.me/announcing-darkforest) is an MMO space-conquest game where players discover and conquer planets in an infinite, procedurally-generated, cryptographically-specified universe. Find out more about the game here: https://zkga.me/ Least Authority (https://leastauthority.com/) is a team of security researchers, open source developers, privacy advocates, and cryptographers focused is on securing distributed systems: blockchain, peer-to-peer and other approaches to systems built with the principle of least authority. They are known for security audits and reviews like the Eth 2.0 Specification, Protocol Lab's Gossipsub Protocol, Zcash Sapling upgrade, & Tezos Foundation's TzBTC, as well as their work with zero knowledge proofs integrated into the Tahoe-LAFS (secure distributed file store) with "ZKAPs: zero knowledge access passes (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=swLBgaksy3o)". They are currently looking for a technical writer to help the Least Authority team write security research and audit reports, open source technical documentation and privacy analysis statements on technical approaches.

** Be sure to visit our ZKPodcast subreddit (https://www.reddit.com/r/zkpodcast) and leave us some questions for the upcoming AMA!** In this week’s episode, Anna and guest-host / frequent guest Tarun Chitra (https://twitter.com/tarunchitra) catch up with Alex Evans (https://twitter.com/alexhevans), researcher at Placeholder Capital (https://www.placeholder.vc/). They dive into the latest in DeFi, a topic that we don't cover too often, but has become hard to ignore. Specifically they discuss the emergence of liquidity farming, the difference between the zkresearch space and the DeFi space, some emerging concepts like AMM and Staking derivatives, and cover a recent report Tarun and Alex published together on the impact of staking derivatives on the security of PoS systems. Here are a few of the articles and links mentioned in the episode: What PoS and DeFi can learn from mortgage-backed securities (https://link.medium.com/xMuiCj6hc8) by Tarun and Alex Liquidity Provider Returns in Geometric Mean Markets (https://arxiv.org/abs/2006.08806) by Alex Evans Building Liquidity into Token Distribution (https://medium.com/balancer-protocol/building-liquidity-into-token-distribution-a49d4286e0d4) Black–Scholes model (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black%E2%80%93Scholes_model) Thank you to this week's sponsor Trail of Bits (https://www.trailofbits.com/). Upgradeable contracts are not as safe as you think. Architectures for upgradeability can be flawed, locking contracts, losing data, or sabotaging your ability to recover from an incident. Every contract upgrade must be carefully reviewed to avoid catastrophic mistakes. The GitHub App Crytic now includes a comprehensive suite of 17 upgradeability checks to help you avoid these pitfalls. This tool allows devs to stress test their upgradeable contracts as they go, saving time and potentially catastrophic headaches down the line. For more check out their blog post where they describe how to use this tool - https://blog.trailofbits.com/2020/06/12/upgradeable-contracts-made-safer-with-crytic/ So thanks again Trail of Bits 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) Catch us on Youtube (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYWsYz5cKw4wZ9Mpe4kuM_g) Give us feedback! https://forms.gle/iKMSrVtcAn6BByH6A Support our Gitcoin Grant (https://gitcoin.co/grants/329/zero-knowledge-podcast-2) Support us on the ZKPatreon (https://www.patreon.com/zeroknowledge) Or directly here: ETH: 0xC0FFEE1B5083230a5154F55f253B6b6ae8F29B1a BTC: 1cafekGa3podM4fBxPSQc6RCEXQNTK8Zz ZEC: t1R2bujRF3Hzte9ALHpMJvY8t5kb9ut9SpQ
** Check out the ZKPodcast subreddit (https://www.reddit.com/r/ZKPodcast/comments/hvr8dv/ama_with_anna_and_fredrik_post_your_questions_here/) and share some comments/questions for our upcoming AMA ** This week, we catch up with Benedikt Bunz (https://twitter.com/benediktbuenz) and Ben Fisch (https://twitter.com/benafisch), PhD students at Stanford, once again. In this episode, we dive deeper into Findora (https://twitter.com/findoraorg), a project that was co-founded by Ben (who is also the CTO) and where Benedikt works as the Head of Research. We look at what the Findora project is, discuss the "selective disclosure" concept at the heart of their constructions, explore the balance between transparency and privacy and describe what problems Findora aims to solve.

In this episode, we will be exploring StarkWare and DeversiFi’s collaboration - a Layer 2 STARK-powered exchange for Ethereum assets. Guests Tom Brand (https://twitter.com/bbrandtom), product manager at Starkware (https://twitter.com/StarkWareLtd), and Will Harborne (https://twitter.com/will_harborne), co-founder of DeversiFi (https://twitter.com/deversifi), discuss the project, how it works under the hood and give us a glimpse into what they have planned for the future. We also look at how Validium, that is Layer-2 scaling solutions in which the validity of all transactions is enforced using zero-knowledge proofs, while data availability is kept off-chain, differ from other layer 2 scaling solutions like Plasma, Optimistic Rollup and zkRollup, and discuss the axioms used to quantify these differences. Here is some of additional material: - Matter Labs Blog post defining Validium (https://medium.com/matter-labs/evaluating-ethereum-l2-scaling-solutions-a-comparison-framework-b6b2f410f955?source=collection_home---6------1-----------------------) - Deversifi Blog post about the collaboration (https://blog.deversifi.com/introducing-deversifi2-0/) - Starkware's STARKEx explained (https://starkware.co/product/starkex/) At the beginning of the episode, Anna and Will also discussed their joint project ZKValidator (https://zkvalidator.com/) which works on Cosmos, Polkadot and Kusama.

In this week's episode, Anna explores the state of trusted setups with 4 of the people who have recently coordinated and run trusted setups for different SNARK systems. She interviews Koh Wei Jie (https://kohweijie.com/) from the Ethereum Foundation (https://twitter.com/ethereum), Thomas Walton-Pocock (https://twitter.com/trpocock) from Aztec Protocol (https://twitter.com/aztecprotocol), Brecht Devos (https://twitter.com/Brechtpd) from Loopring (https://twitter.com/loopringorg) and Kobi Gurkan (https://kobi.one/) from the EF and cLabs (https://celo.org/). This episode covers the new generation of trusted setups and how the teams working on these are learning from each other and at times, even sharing parts of the trusted set up itself. As a primer, Trusted Setups are those events or ceremonies that one needs to perform to generate the parameters that can kick off SNARK based systems. It is an MPC - or multiparty computation - that involves a number of participants sequentially downloading software, running a computation that includes some randomness that they generate and re-uploading their result to be folded into the next participants computation. At the end of this process, there is a hidden parameter that is used to create the keys that are used to create proofs for private transactions, and to verify those proofs. These keys prove that a transaction is correct. Here are some helpful links about all the various trusted setups we mention: Zcash's Trusted Setups https://www.zeroknowledge.fm/50 - Zooko speaks about the trusted set up at timecode 17:45 https://www.wnycstudios.org/podcasts/radiolab/articles/ceremony https://z.cash/technology/paramgen/ EF's Perpetual Powers of Tau https://github.com/weijiekoh/perpetualpowersoftau Semaphore Semaphore blog post (https://medium.com/@weijiek/release-announcement-semaphore-a-zero-knowledge-gadget-for-ethereum-5b671cd360d4) Semaphore Phase 2 Multi-Party Trusted Setup Participant Guide (https://hackmd.io/oja21FipQ5KhQcXeyuQWFQ) MACI (upcoming) https://github.com/appliedzkp/maci Aztec Protocol https://www.aztecprotocol.com/ignition/ https://ignition.aztecprotocol.com/ Loopring https://loopring.org/#/post/loopring-starts-trusted-setup-multi-party-computation-ceremony Tornado Cash https://medium.com/@tornado.cash/the-biggest-trusted-setup-ceremony-in-the-world-3c6ab9c8fffa https://ceremony.tornado.cash/ cLabs (upcoming) https://github.com/celo-org/snark-setup Check out the Zero Knowledge Youtube Channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYWsYz5cKw4wZ9Mpe4kuM_g?view_as=subscriber) and be sure to subscribe to get the latest videos from the Podcast, zkSummit and zkStudyClub!
