Will zk eat the modular stack? Isn’t zk an enhancer for the stack as a whole? Which parts of the stack will be disrupted by zk, and how?

Today, we’re diving into a thought-provoking interview with Hannes from Equilibrium Labs to get all the answers . Equilibrium Labs specializes in low-level protocol engineering, helping protocols become safer, faster, and more usable.

The core idea of “Will ZK Eat the Modular Stack?” revolves around two major trends: modularity and the expansion of ZK technology.

We also explored the trade-offs between optimistic and ZK security, as well a look into an expanded modular stack. The full stack now includes over ten components like User Operation Abstraction, Shared Sequencing, Data Querying, Long-term State Storage, and Security, going beyond the traditional modular stack’s four components of Execution, Settlement, Data Availability and Consensus.

We’re on the cusp of early ZK adoption across various modules, with RaaS providers and rollup frameworks starting to offer more and more options.

Full adoption of a ZK-ified modular stack might be closer than we think.

Join us as we uncover how modularity and ZK are the perfect fit for each other!
