In Module 11, Henry de Valence chats with Brendan about Penumbra – a shielded, cross-chain network. This system is an example of zk in the wild, in this case in DeFi, and shows us the complexity and opportunity in a private swap paradigm. He describes the ZK Swaps example to illustrate how we can privately interact with a public state on-chain.
