Eli Ben-Sasson and Uri Kolodny (Starkware) on Scalability with STARKs (EP.327)

In this episode, host Ria sits down with the co-founders of Starkware, Eli Ben-Sasson and Uri Kolodny to discuss how the team is leveraging STARKs, or validity proofs, to unlock a magnitude increase in scalability. We discuss:

  • The differences between Starkex and Starknet and how the two will converge
  • Enabling functions and applications that cannot be built on monolithic layer 1s
  • Why data availability is important to zk rollups and the trade offs of different approaches
  • Simultaneously solving for computational¬†integrity and inclusive accountability
