Digital yuan's smart contract functionality was integrated into the food delivery app Meituan, allowing users of the digital yuan to automatically compete in a raffle draw.
Jack Dorsey’s Block—a founding member of Crypto Open Patent Alliance—has been forced to cite one of Dr. Wright’s foundational blockchain patents in one of their own recently-approved smart contract patents.
The Zero-Knowledge Proof Hackathon was declared "an overwhelming success," with 928 participants, of which three emerged as winners, taking home $45,000 each.
The hackathon, aimed at encouraging developers to build new applications using zero-knowledge proofs (ZKPs) while growing the BSV community, proved to be an overwhelming success with more than 920 participants and 60 submissions received covering a range of subjects and use cases.
The coding segment for the 2022 Zero-Knowledge Proof Hackathon concludes, participated by 929 individuals, all with the goal of creating a project that could run on the BSV blockchain.
scryptTS allows developers to directly code smart contracts in Typescript, using existing programming languages and tools that many are already familiar with.
By using Zero-Knowledge Contingent Payment (ZKCP), a seller does not have to interact with the buyer, as they only need to post a single bounty transaction.
Outsourcing arbitrary computation securely and privately on a blockchain needs Zero Knowledge Proof to validate encrypted solution and prevent data from leaking.
Signatures act as public keys/addresses that are used to pre-authorize state updates and carry out token transactions.
Bitcoin's programmability and scalability have paved the way for the creation of PLONK proof, a system that can be implemented similarly to a smart contract.
In the first part of "How PLONK works," sCrypt explained how to transform a computation to prove using PLONK into an intermediate constraint system; now, they covered the other type: copy constraints.
