NEAR and Polygon partner to innovate on zero-knowledge proofs

NEAR Foundation partners with Polygon Labs to develop zkWASM, a cutting-edge zero-knowledge solution enhancing interoperability and security for WASM chains. The NEAR Foundation, renowned for its contribution to the NEAR protocol’s ecosystem, and Polygon Labs, have announced a pioneering venture to create zkWASM—a zero-knowledge proof technology tailored for WASM-based blockchains. This

Bitcoin pioneer Hal Finney talks zk proofs in 25-year-old unearthed footage

Early Bitcoin (BTC) pioneer Hal Finney shared his vision for zero-knowledge proofs more than 25 years ago, a full decade before the launch of the first cryptocurrency, Bitcoin. The video, purportedly from the Crypto ‘98 conference held on Aug. 26, 1998, in Santa Barbara, shows Finney discussing in detail, the concept of

ZK proofs could change the internet, not just Web3 — Aleo exec

Zero-knowledge proofs could be used to solve the “biggest problem” plaguing the internet today — privacy, according to one cryptocurrency executive. Speaking with Cryptox at the Ethereum Community Conference (EthCC) the marketing chief at privacy-focused infrastructure platform Aleo, Brennen Schlueter, said while ZK proofs have become a popular solution to

Crypto Protocol Axiom Retrieves Historical Ethereum Data, Runs Computations, Relies on ZK Proofs

In Axiom’s vision, ZK proofs will be used for such authentication processes. Machine learning algorithms, some of which train themselves to generate images or text based on prompts, will be able to run off-chain, but when ZK proofs bring their results on-chain, users and smart contracts will be able to
