SuperScalar and Orbiter Finance Revolutionize ZKPs with Halo2 GPU Acceleration
We are delighted to announce a strategic partnership with Orbiter Finance, a leading decentralized cross-rollup Layer 2 bridge. This collaboration is set to revolutionize the capabilities of Orbiter Finance by optimizing multiple modules of the Halo 2 algorithm, a prominent algorithm in the realm of zero-knowledge proofs.
Halo 2, acknowledged as one of the prominent algorithms in ZKPs, has garnered recommendations from esteemed bodies such as the Ethereum Foundation and has found adoption in influential projects like Orbiter Finance and Scroll. Notably, Orbiter Finance has harnessed ZKP within its Orbiter Bridge Protocol to reduce Gas fees in the arbitration process for decentralization. This initiative has led to the imminent fully open state of Maker’s arbitration process upon the official launch of the decentralized Orbiter bridge.
While Halo 2 presents challenges in practical implementation, our strategic partnership seeks to address these hurdles. Its intricate algorithm demands significant computational resources and it is time-intensive-take a few minutes to finish computation, leading to concerns of centralization and limited adoption:
In response, we have developed hardware acceleration solutions, optimizing calculations such as MSM, NTT, and Evaluation to drastically reduce the time required for proof generation. Our approach involves a multi-faceted strategy, including architecture enhancement, algorithm optimization, and data transfer streamlining.
This partnership stands as a testament to the capabilities of SuperScalar’s Halo 2 GPU Acceleration Solution. We extend an open invitation to potential ecosystem partners, welcoming you to explore the limitless potential that our innovative solution offers.
