The new Brakedown encoding in Plonky3 can encode witness data at a speed of approximately 1.2 GB/s, providing a significant increase in proving speeds.
Initial estimates suggest a proving rate of around 4 MHz with a single CPU-only machine, making the solution about three orders of magnitude faster than existing alternatives.
Our zkVM's compatibility with LLVM opens the door to a wide array of conventional programming languages, streamlining the transition for developers into the world of decentralized systems. Additionally, EVM compatibility ensures a smooth experience for those already in the Ethereum development space, allowing for a seamless blend of familiarity and innovation.
By redefining the proving process, our zkVM minimizes computational resources, thereby significantly reducing the cost of generating zero-knowledge proofs.
This efficiency not only makes our platform more accessible but also translates to tangible savings in both time and operational costs, enabling a leaner, more cost-effective approach to secure computation.
Our platform is engineered to foster innovation, giving developers the tools to create novel solutions in the decentralized space. Whether it's in finance, gaming, or any other sector seeking to leverage the power of zero-knowledge proofs, our zkVM provides the performance and versatility necessary to transform visionary ideas into deployed realities.
