In this week's episode, we invite J. Ayo Akinyele to the podcast. Ayo is a co-Founder of Bolt Labs which will be focused on developing the Bolt Protocol, a privacy preserving layer 2 approach for anonymous micropayments, which is similar to Lightning Network.
Bolt, which stands for Blind, Offchain, Lightweight, Transactions, could be used for both scaling zcash or providing a scalable privacy solution for other chains.
Here are some additional resources:
