It’s been a busy year for Mina Protocol and the team have just released their updated roadmap for Q4 ’22. You can read the full article here, but here is a concise breakdown of the main points.
The zkIgnite Cohort 0 event has been a great source of new zkApps for Mina Protocol and below you will see some (more to come) of the awesome work done by the developers who participated.
Regina is Wong will be giving an introduction talk entitled ‘Smart Contracts with Zero-Knowledge Proofs’, covering Mina Protocol / snarkyJS and zkApps this Thursday (dec 15th) as part of ETHMalaysia in Kuala Lumpur.
Here are three new ZkApps built at the recent ETHIndia event.
ZK Hack is a virtual event series featuring weekly workshops and advanced puzzle solving competitions. Each week, participants will be able to learn about key ZK concepts and tools and/or compete to find bugs in protocols in our puzzle competition and win prizes.
There’s still time to join the new zkIgnite, Cohort O, but don’t hang around, stage one (or actually stage 0) ends in two weeks on December the 15th. Entrants can complete tutorials based around snarkyJS and potentially win rewards from a $250k MINA prize pool. Last week the code was downloaded over several thousand times […]
Developers are starting to get a taste for zkApps and now that there’s the potential to build them on Berkeley testnet the increase in downloads of snarkyJS, (the typescript library created by O(1) labs needed to build them) has been noticeable.
The recent FTX situation has thrown a whole range of discussion points on the table in so far as decentralisation, safe CEXes (see the twitter space here) and the problem of trust in crypto generally. Phil Kelly, COO of O(1) Labs has written an excellent Medium article entitiled ‘Composable Identity with ZK: Avoiding Web3 data […]
Brandon Kase and Evan Shapiro came together for a special livestream to officially launch zkSpark, a new incentivised testnet for Mina Protocol.
In the next Twitter space, Phil continues the conversation with O(1) Labs team member and Mina Protocol Architect Engineer, Brandon Kase and among the topics up for discussion are ‘Safer CEXes’.
