ZEXE is basically a zkSNARK based micro-kernel for the blockchain. It provides the absolute minimum in process isolation while ensuring privacy and allowing inter process communication. It also makes all transactions succinct. So its scalable.
New paper. ZEXE: Zero-knowledge Execution.Think of it like a private OS for the blockchain. Can build private tokens, smart contracts, and maybe even a DEX. Joint work with @matthew_d_green @ebfull @1HowardWu @zkproofs and Alessandro Chiesa https://t.co/UGEC1vWlua
