Some of the isolated blockers for zKSNARKs (#7 #8 #9) might be mitigated by the use of other ZKP technology. However, they likely have their own issues.

Acceptance criteria

Understand key realistic alternatives and possible bottlenecks/issues that require more research


E.g. STARKs have less of a trusted setup, but: (a) tooling appears to be lacking right now (b) proof size is ~40kb (too big for a single message => requires workaround) (c) verification time/gas usage high.

There are others like HALO, Bulletproofs, etc. More everyday. Understand how to place them and which to focus on and why.
