Zero-knowledge cryptography has been one of the most significant innovations in computer science over the past 50 years. Zero-knowledge proofs (ZKP) offer unique properties that make them an important part of various blockchain scaling and privacy solutions. Today, we are currently in the early stages of a series of advances in zero-knowledge proof solutions — but just in the last decade, the improvements in speed, efficiency, user-friendliness, and decentralization have been astounding. We have evolved from a very small number of consumer-facing applications in the zero-knowledge space to an entire ecosystem of applications and blockchains providing privacy and scalability in a very short period of time. It is important to be reminded that as we go through the web3 revolution, don’t forget our original intent: to create a new world of accessibility, no trust, and decentralization.

As the authors argue, the success of all economies is dependent on a balanced and sustainable monetary system. While the GameFi project, represented by Axie, has been an effective practice for exploring the balance between the game economy in terms of its monetary supply and demand, the extreme volatility of the in-game currency still poses a great challenge for all stakeholders. This paper suggests that embedding some tried and tested financial infrastructures into a gamer-friendly version seems to be a very good idea, And listed the specific path of “BLOG”, namely: Buybacks, Locking , Omnipool and Governance, which is very informative.
