  1. Blockchain Trainer

  2. Zero Knowledge Proof Proof that you know some secret without

    actually revealing it!

  4. ZkP Properties Completeness Soundness Zero-knowledgeness Prover can convince the verifier

    about any true statement Prover cannot convince the verifier about a false statement Verifier doesn’t learn anything other than the fact that the statement is true

  9. Completeness Soundness Zero-knowledgeness If Google is telling the truth, then

    they will eventually convince me (at least with high probability) Google can only convince me if they’re actually telling the truth I don’t learn anything else about Google’s solution ZkP Properties
