Private Smart Contracts: A Way to Bring Programmability to Monero
Luke 'Kayaba' Parker

Smart contracts are a frequent request for Monero, yet have significant questions about privacy, efficiency, and complexity. Any VM would have several pages for its specification, with opcodes debatable for years. The denial of service risk would threaten Monero's stability, and the lack of privacy seen with most VMs would be unacceptable.

This talk will establish and go over a potential evolution for the protocol, where smart contracts are expressed in algebraic terms (creating a pure specification) and evaluated in constant time (being without a denial of service risk) while maintaining privacy of the contract code, inputs, and execution without a trusted setup.

Full-chain Membership Proofs++
Luke 'Kayaba' Parker

This talk will go over the newly discussed Full Chain Membership Proofs++ protocol, evolving Full Chain Membership Proofs into an upgrade independent of Seraphis and its associated migration.

Unorthodox Cryptography to Scale Monero
Luke 'Kayaba' Parker

Monero is expected to evolve to Seraphis, adopt JAMTIS as our new address scheme, and even adopt Full Chain Membership Proofs for complete sender privacy. All of these rely on Elliptic Curve Cryptography, with the most notable construction being the curve cycle (an elliptic curve whose scalar field embeds the field of an elliptic curve whose scalar field is the original curve's field) proposed.

This talk will go over alternate cryptographic schemes which can offer a more performant membership proof, decrease the storage requirements of Monero, eliminate the need to iteratively scan transactions for near-instant scan times, and increase privacy for users who don't run their own nodes.
