Aleph Zero to Sponsor ZK Hack: Blockchain Privacy

Oct 20, 2021

Zero-knowledge proofs are a crucial part of Aleph Zero’s identity. That is why we are proud to sponsor the ZK Hackathon: an opportunity to learn about zero-knowledge tools while also winning bounties.

Starting in November 2021, Zero-Knowledge Validator and Zero-Knowledge Podcast will be hosting a series of six events dedicated to raising awareness and sharing knowledge about zero-knowledge proofs. 

Zero-knowledge proofs play a significant role in building secure and privacy-enhancing blockchain solutions. The workshops and bug bounty programs are open to cryptographic enthusiasts of every level. The ZK Hack team include Anna Rose, Kobi Gurkan, Susannah Evans, and Tanya Karsou. They will lead classes on the tools associated with zero-knowledge proofs, including Leo/Aleo, SnarkyJS/SNAPPs, Noir/PLONK, Circom, and Cairo. 

During the workshop, a bug bounty program will also be introduced, incentivizing the educational process as participants will be able to solve cryptographic puzzles and expose errors present in various protocols. The winners will be awarded cash prizes and will have the opportunity to explain their problem-solving process to the other participants. 

If you wish to participate in the event, either by creating a puzzle, hosting a workshop, sponsoring a prize, or organizing the event itself, don’t hesitate to get in touch with [email protected] to find out more. 

Aleph Zero would like to thank ZK Hack once again for the opportunity to promote this exciting event. We sincerely appreciate the work ZK Hack conducts in educating the community on zero-knowledge proofs and wish to continue cooperating with such initiatives in the future.
