Orochi Network: The Zero Knowledge Modular Data Availability Layer


Data Integrity: In a truly decentralized Web3, data integrity would be maintained through a distributed network of validators. Each node would be able to verify the correctness of data independently. But In many Web3 solutions today, some level of trust in third-party oracles is necessary. Oracles are essentially data feeds that bridge the gap between the blockchain and the real world. They provide external data to smart contracts, which can then be used to trigger actions based on real-world events.

Data Availability: Smart contracts execute within isolated environment, the smart contract runtime (e.g: EVM, WASM) on the blockchain. This isolation/virtualization protects them from malicious attacks but also restricts their ability to interact directly with external data sources, like those in the real world. And also as the number of users and transactions on a blockchain network increases, storing and accessing all data on-chain becomes difficult and expensive.

Our Solutions

At the heart of Orochi Network lies Zero-Knowledge Modular Data Availability Layer (ZK Modular DA Layer - zkMDAL). Our system leverages the power of Zero-Knowledge Proofs (ZKPs) to create a high-performance Verifiable Data Pipeline for zkApp (Zero-Knowledge Applications), dApp (Decentralized Applications) and smart contract platforms. ZKPs allow us to prove the validity of every steps of data processing without revealing any other information. This innovation allows zkApps, dApps and smart contract platform to access unlimited number of off-chain states securely and efficiently in a verifiable manner. Developers can then focus on building innovative applications, leaving the complexities of Data Integrity and Data Availability to zkMDAL. But what exactly is zkMDAL, and how does it solve Web3's problems?

zkDatabase: Verifiable Data Pipeline

While ordinary Data Availability Layers focus on storing and guaranteeing the accessibility of data, zkDatabase goes a step further. It acts as a Verifiable Data Pipeline, the first of its kind for Web3. This pipeline offers several key advantages:

  • Verifiable Data Integrity: Unlike other Data Availability Layers which are combine of distributed storage and commitment scheme, zkDatabase ensures data integrity by employing ZKPs. These ZKPs guarantee that the information processed satisfies the constraints required in the database, hasn't been tampered with and the proof is succinct, hence it can be verified on other blockchains effectively.
  • Proof-of-Everything of Data: We do not just focus on verifying the data itself. zkDatabase aims to generate proofs encompassing everything related to the data – its origin, storage location, and any transformations it undergoes. This comprehensive approach fosters unparalleled trust and accuracy.
  • ZK-rollups for Interoperability: Unlike some ordinary Data Availability Layers that can not bundle queries, zkDatabase leverages ZK-rollups to perform rollup on data. This approach allows zkDatabase to bundle multiple database queries in one single succinct proof. This interoperability eliminates the need for centralized oracles and reduces fees to verify the database's proof.

In essence, zkDatabase transcends the limitations of existing Data Availability Layers. It provides a comprehensive Verifiable Data Pipeline, offering verifiable data integrity, proof-of-everything for enhanced trust, and interoperability through zk-rollups. This combination empowers developers to build secure and reliable Web3 applications with confidence.

zkMemory: A Generic Memory Prover in Zero-Knowledge Proof

zkMemory is a key innovation within Orochi's zkMDAL. It represents a modular memory prover, designed to be agnostic to specific proof systems. This means zkMemory can potentially work with various zero-knowledge proof systems, offering greater flexibility and adaptability for Orochi's zkMDAL.

  • Proof-System Agnostic: As mentioned earlier, zkMemory's modular design allows it to function with different proof systems. This enhances the overall adaptability of Orochi's zkMDAL.
  • Future-Proof Design: A modular approach like zkMemory positions Orochi's zkMDAL to embrace advancements in zero-knowledge proof systems as they emerge.

zkMemory is not only a back-end of zkMDAL but also a powerful building block for creating secure and efficient Zero-Knowledge Virtual Machines (zkVMs). Its modular design allows developers to integrate zkMemory into their zkVM architecture. This component acts as a dedicated memory prover, handling the zk-proof generation for memory operations within the zkVM. By leveraging zkMemory's modularity, developers can design zkVM applications with customized instruction sets and architecture, enabling them to tailor the virtual machine to specific needs. This flexibility, coupled with zkMemory's potential efficiency gains in proof generation, paves the way for a new generation of zkVM applications within the Web3 landscape.
