This is the 5th edition of ZK-Roller-Coaster where we track and investigate the most exciting, meaningful, and crazy ZK-stuff of the prior two weeks.

Hold on tight! 🎢

Spice of the weeks 🌶️

  • Twice in a week, Ethereum had Mainnet Finality issues. Offchain Labs presented an analysis outlining the incident. Ethereum Bug Bounty Program offers up to $250,000 and a place on the leaderboard by finding protocol, client, and Solidity bugs affecting the Ethereum network.

ZK and rollups research 🧙

ZK and rollups updates 🎈

Non-ZK industry highlights 🎡

Opportunities and events 🏄‍♀️

Readings and watchings 🎞


Fancy mathematics and cryptography

  • Edu from the PSE team gave A CODE WALK-THROUGH over the ZKEVM-Circuits repo.

  • The recording of the Learn & Share session by the PSE team: Diving into Caulk and Caulk+ through Vector Commitments.

  • Enrico Bottazzi from the PSE team shared that they are building Summa ∑, zk proof of solvency for CEXes and how it works.

  • The paper: "Weak Fiat-Shamir Attacks on Modern Proof Systems: Q Dao, J Miller, O Wright, P Grubbs."

Puzzles for curious 🧩

  • Alex Stokes is wondering: "has anyone written a EIP-4844 "blobber" service?"

  • Alex Stokes is wondering: "cryptographers, how heretical is it to expose elliptic curve addition and (scalar) multiplication as subsets of an interface to multiscalar multiplication?"

Thank you for reading the 5th edition of ZK-Roller-Coaster. See you in two weeks! 🚵‍♀️
