The Next Chapter of Modular Blockchains: Proof of SQL w/ Scott Dykstra (Space and Time)

In the realm of Zero-Knowledge Cryptography, recent research is reshaping the role of cryptography beyond mere encryption, making it a pivotal tool for decentralized computing. ZK rollups, exemplifying this shift, address the trustless but costly nature of Ethereum's computations by allowing inexpensive off-chain computation with results recorded on-chain. Ethereum faces challenges not only in execution but also in storing data, where conventional approaches are prohibitively expensive. Zero-Knowledge Cryptography emerges as a transformative solution, illustrated by Space and Time, a cryptography company using it to prove SQL queries off-chain, revolutionizing both execution and storage in the Ethereum ecosystem. This is a wide ranging conversation with Scott Dysktra, Co-Founder and CTO of Space and Time, on all things crypto and decentralized computing!
