## Zero-knowledge cryptography

Why does zero-knowledge cryptography matter?

Privacy.

The internet has made our lives more digital.  What we choose to share has
become more important because once something is uploaded, we can no longer
choose to unpublish, or choose who knows.  Systems get hacked, information
gets sold.  Zero-knowledge systems let people prove facts without revealing
their substance.

I currently participate in building a blockchain called Neptune.  This involves
building Triton VM (src), a zk-STARK virtual machine capable of efficiently
proving its own verification. It also involves the problem of scalable privacy.
