Poseidon VM: a zkApp friendly VM with EVM compatibility
10-13, 13:40–13:53 (America/Bogota), Workshop 1

We present Poseidon VM, a blockchain VM designed to support decentralized applications powered by zero-knowledge proofs (a.k.a. zkApps) with friendly programming abstractions and cheap transaction cost.

I am co-founder of Manta Network. I graduated as a PhD from University of Washington Computer Science and Engineering, where I was advised by computer scientist Dan Suciu. I obtained my bachelor degree from Wuhan University, China. Before Manta, I was a research scientist at Algorand and assistant professor at UCSB.
