Options for Proof Generation

To support a variety of use cases, RISC Zero allows users a variety of options for proof generation.

Users can choose between:

  1. dev-mode: No proofs are generated, enabling rapid prototyping.
  2. Local Proving: Proofs are generated on the user's own CPU/GPU.
  3. Remote Proving: Proofs are generated by Bonsai, a highly parallelized, highly performant proving service.

We recommend option 1 during development, option 2 for applications involving private inputs, and option 3 for all other applications.
