Cardinal and Nethermind to collaborate on Aleph Zero’s privacy layer, Liminal
We’re excited to announce that a new partner has joined the journey of developing the best-in-class privacy framework—Aleph Zero’s Liminal.
Nethermind will join Cardinal Cryptography, Aleph Zero’s core research and development team, in efforts to further build out the ZK- and MPC-powered privacy layer. With prior work executed for the Ethereum Foundation, Starkware, Aave, and more, Nethermind will assist in building this ambitious cryptography project. “We’re excited to have an opportunity to collaborate with Nethermind”, says Adam Gagol, Aleph Zero’s co-founder. “Nethermind’s broad experience in ZK-SNARKs and fundamental cryptography both on the academic as well as deployment side will greatly benefit the Aleph Zero ecosystem as well as speed up the market-readiness of Liminal.”
The primary goal of this joint work is not only finalizing Liminal’s architecture but also working on improving formalism and providing security proofs for the critical parts of the system.
Cardinal Cryptography has collaborated with Nethermind in the past, and our approach to bringing formal verification, diligent research, and bulletproof security designs to the blockchain space align between these two parties. Therefore, extending this relationship feels only natural.
Thanks to Nethermind’s close relationship with the Ethereum community, we are also hoping to significantly improve our understanding of the privacy-oriented needs and wants within this large ecosystem to make the interoperability between Aleph Zero and Liminal even better.
Aleph Zero on-chain monitoring powered by Lukka is now live
We are thrilled to announce the successful completion of the integration between Aleph Zero and Lukka–a company that acquired Coinfirm in the middle of 2023. This collaboration significantly enhances transaction security and AML compliance within the Aleph Zero blockchain ecosystem. What Lukka brings to the ecosystem? Integration with an on-chain monitoring system brings several benefits
The Quest for the Fastest Blockchain
Blockchain speed can take different shapes and be measured from different perspectives. However, the main outlook in all cases is still to build a fast blockchain network that can handle mass adoption. This is because of the general understanding of how web3 needs to scale. In order for it to propose a viable alternative to
