Joining us today for this deeply technical conversation is RiscZero CEO Brian Retford and Justin Drake. RiscZero is attempting to create a zkEVM for Ethereum that will require such low compute requirements that validators could be run on smart watches and mobile phones.
Moderated by Justin Drake, we take a look at the implications
this tech can have on the future of Ethereum.
