We’re starting to live in a “zk” world. Every day I continue to see more see zero-knowledge implementations all over the place (most recent being Polygon’s recursive proof Plonky 2 impl.).
This has me wondering the following: Who is the “authority” on all of this? Is there work being done that’s overlapping? How can that be prevented? Should it be prevented or should it be allowed to increase competition? Ultimately we’re all working towards one goal which is a private decentralized world.
It seems like I’m starting to understand the collaboration with the Ethereum Foundation a bit better, but it also seems like there are currently many horses in this race and I wonder how many will be getting sent to the glue factory and for what reason.
