In this week's episode Anna Rose chats with Brandon Kase, CTO, and Steve Pack, Head of Product at O(1)Labs, focusing on the Mina Protocol. The discussion covers their journeys leading to their work on the project, developments in the Mina Protocol since the last appearance on ZK Podcast, and insights into the zkApps building environment. They delve into the technical aspects of o1js and the underlying philosophy that drives its design. The episode wraps with a forward-looking perspective on the potential applications of zero-knowledge proofs as the industry shifts from a research-centric to a builder-centric approach.

NEAR Foundation and Polygon Labs just announced they are teaming up to build zkWASM, a zero-knowledge prover for WASM blockchains. This collaboration will create a more secure, interoperable Web3 ecosystem for an open web.
NEAR’s deep WASM runtime expertise combined with Polygon Labs’ authority in ZK scaling technology, the zkWASM prover will be market leader when it launches in 2024.
