Why Solana Needs Privacy For Mass Adoption | Elusiv, Light Protocol

Jorrit Palfner and Yannik Schrade join us to discuss why privacy is required for crypto to go mainstream. Jorrit (Light Protocol's co-founder) and Yannik (Elusiv's co-founder) are building Solana's leading privacy protocols. This discussion is more technical than usual, but the insights are incredible. We discuss the implications of private computation, how Light and Elusiv bring privacy onchain, the risks of zero-knowledge proofs, why build privacy on Solana and not an SVM rollup and more!
