Hyperlane is the first Permissionless Interoperability layer, enabling anyone to connect any blockchain, out-of-the-box. With Hyperlane, developers can build Interchain Applications, apps that abstract away the complexity of interchain interactions and serve users on any connected chain. Additionally, Hyperlane’s modular security stack gives developers the power to customize their interchain security. Hyperlane development is open-source and led by core developers at Abacus Works.
Celestia is the first modular data availability network that securely scales with the number of users, making it easy for anyone to launch their own blockchain.
RISC Zero is focused on taking care of the underlying cryptography so that you can focus on building zkApps. We've built the zkVM that allows users to prove correct execution of arbitrary Rust code. And Bonsai, a decentralized proving engine that empowers developers to seamlessly integrate ZK proofs into their applications, blockchains, or appchains, enhancing security and enabling complex computations.
About Lagrange Labs
Lagrange Labs specializes in developing infrastructure to increase the security and expressivity of how contract states can be used onchain and between chains. Lagrange’s first product is ZK Big Data, a novel proof system optimized for concurrently generating batched storage proofs and dynamic zero-knowledge distributed computation.
