A big part of the tech behind Mina Protocol relies on Zero Knowledge Proofs (zk-snarks) and while the concepts have been around since the 80’s, their importance in shaping the next generation of blockchains is becoming more clear.
In this YouTube session by Delendum Ventures, Shashank Agrawal introduces a great panel of speakers from several ecosystems in ZKP to present their perspectives on the compilers including Mina Ecosystem partner, O(1) Labs‘s CTO Izaak Meckler. If you want to skip ahead you can watch Izaak’s talk on ‘Composability via Typescript and Recursion via snarkyJS’ from around the 33minute mark.
