The popularity of zero-knowledge (ZK) proof has been emerging in the blockchain industry. It is because ZK proofs are used by dApps to verify their users’ identity, without revealing their personal information and exposing other sensitive data. 

On the Ethereum Network, a Type 1 ZK-Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) is being built led by the Ethereum Foundation’s Privacy and Scaling Explorations (PSE) team.

Because Taiko Network (https://taiko.xyz) is led by the PSE team of the Ethereum Foundation, it was developed as an open-source project that convinces the $ETH community to contribute to the ongoing formulation of the Type 1 ZK-EVM.

“We are a community-driven project that welcomes and values every and any contribution. That’s including both technical and non-technical contributions. Come to our community forum for more in-depth research, development, and other discussions,” the developers advertised.
