Zero-knowledge techniques are mathematical methods used to verify things without sharing or revealing underlying data.
"Zero-knowledge proof or zero-knowledge protocol is a method by which one party (the prover) can prove to another party (the verifier) that they know a value x, without conveying any information apart from the fact that they know the value x." -- Wikipedia
In the Ethereum blockchain ecosystem, Matter Labs is bridging the gap between cutting-edge academic research on Zero-Knowledge Proofs and their applications in usable products. It started out of scientific curiosity, the joy of engineering, and a deep conviction: The most impactful way to improve the world today is to provide an open and free alternative to its existing, deeply flawed financial system. Recently, Matter Labs helped Reddit with their bake-off scaling challenge.
If you're interested in ZKP or just curious to learn the possible scaling solution for Ethereum, we have an AMA with Matter Labs' CEO Alex Gluchowski on Thursday at 8:30 AM ET.
