ZeroSync to Bring ZK-Proofs to Expedite Bitcoin Validation

Swiss-based nonprofit, ZeroSync Association, is developing open-source tooling that enables users to validate the state of the Bitcoin network using zero-knowledge proofs (ZK-proofs) without downloading the entire blockchain. ZeroSync uses StarkWare’s proprietary Zero-Knowledge Scalable Transparent Argument of Knowledge (zk-STARK) validity proofs to generate succinct ZK-proofs for the Bitcoin blockchain, promising to overhaul the process of verifying the Bitcoin blockchain, which still requires node operators to download a large amount of data to synchronize the correct state of the Bitcoin network.
