Huobi Ventures Weekly Report #3

Huobi Ventures Weekly Insights

Insight provided by Jinbin Xie of Huobi Ventures

If the world of Blockchain is the magic world of Hogwarts, Zero Knowledge Proof must be the Felix Felicis. To classify NP-applicable problems to NP problems, Zero Knowledge Proof (zk) must be the panacea.
More applications of Zero Knowledge Proof are emerging: zk + Rollup = zkSync, zk + Coin = ZCash, zk + EVM = zkEVM, zk + Storage = Filecoin, zk + Block proof = Mina, or zk + Network = (to be expected).

With the influx of solutions for acceleration of zkSnark algorism, for instance, solutions for video card acceleration, such as bellperson, have generated millions of zkSnark Proof, as long as to enhance the performance of the upcoming professional ASIC chips. Consumption of zk computation will not be a major constraint any more.

Let alone the research of zkSync that already have been conducted on zkEVM; more zkApplications will be seen on zkEVM in the near future, such as Proof of Credit Score, Proof of Authentic Identity Document, etc.
zkVerse (zk+everything) is coming true.
