Episode 182: The dive into ZK with Iron Fish’s Elena Nadolinski

This week Anna and James chat with Elena Nadolinski, founder of Iron Fish, about the new privacy network and what led her to this point. Elena recounts her journey into crypto, starting from AirBnB and falling into the rabbit hole of Ethereum hackathons, Solidity, and NFTs, eventually leading her to exploration of zero knowledge proofs for honest computation. This deep dive into SNARKs and Sapling led to the creation of Beanstalk, later Iron Fish, which aims to be the shielded pool for all other blockchain assets. Note: James is an investor in Iron Fish Here are some links: Elena’s slides about Sapling from Zcon Iron Fish whitepaper Halo with Sean Bowe and Daira Hopwood, Zero Knowledge Episode 123 Zexe: Zero Knowledge Computation with Pratyush Mishra, Zero Knowledge Episode 85 Ariel Gabizon on his work with zkSNARKs, Zero Knowledge Episode 86 Don’t forget to subscribe to the ZkMesh newsletter, aggregating all of the latest developments in ZK each month.
