Scaling Ethereum To The Next Level with zkEVM
Inside the episode
Joining us today for this deeply technical conversation is RiskZero CEO Brian Retford and Justin Drake. RiskZero is attempting to create a zkEVM for Ethereum that will require such low compute requirements that validators could be run on smart watches and mobile phones.
Moderated by Justin Drake, we take a look at the implications this tech can have on the future of Ethereum.
