  • Great post @sfast. Much appreciated. The clear explanation of the three layers, how they relate to one another, and the practical examples were very instructive. Being able to see how the synthesis layer varies depending on the data and the interpretation of it (which both remain constant), was a big help. (It seems like you're really dialing in your interpretation and application of the ZK method. Can't wait for the course!)

  • Thanks for your kind words.

    @Eurobubba To many factors. Heightened wealth and prosperity could contribute as well.
