This week, Anna and Tarun chat with Jill Gunter and Ben Fisch from Espresso Systems. Espresso recently went public with their Proof-of-Stake Layer 1 blockchain, developed with flexible private applications and ZK rollups in mind. In this conversation, they explore the founding and development of the project, the Espresso chain and CAPE – a wrapped privacy smart contract application that is designed to be deployed on Espresso. They also discuss the programming model, the evolution of privacy technology, what configurable or flexible privacy means, the Espresso roadmap and more.

Today’s episode is sponsored by Anoma.
Anoma is a suite of protocols that enable self-sovereign coordination. Their unique architecture facilitates efficiently the simplest forms of economic coordination such as two parties transferring an asset to each other. As well as more sophisticated ones like an asset agnostic bartering system involving multiple parties without direct “coincidence of wants”; or even more complex ones such as “N-party” collective commitments to solve multipolar traps – where any interaction can be performed with adjustable zero-knowledge privacy.
