zkIgnite 3: Galxe Protocol

zkIgnite 3: Galxe Protocol

Galxe, a leading platform for Web3 communities, boasts over 15 million users and 4.4k+ partners, offering the largest privacy-protected KYC service with Galxe Passport, surpassing 500K paid users.

The Galxe Protocol introduces a self-sovereign identity system where users generate zero-knowledge proofs locally, enhancing privacy and security. Galxe Passport acts as a KYC issuer, allowing 500K+ users to verify credentials without compromising privacy.

To enhance security and efficiency, the proposal introduces o1js support to the Galxe Protocol for improved zk verification.

The problem addressed is the limitations of traditional identity management systems in the era of digital inter-connectivity. Centralized models face challenges in privacy, security, and sovereignty.

The proposed solution, Galxe Protocol, utilizes verifiable credentials powered by zero-knowledge proofs. It enables selective information disclosure while maintaining pseudonyms, ensuring privacy. With a user-friendly design, proofs can be generated within seconds and verified on-chain affordably.

The protocol supports issuers and verifiers with SDKs for easy ZKP implementation. It allows most issuers to create credentials without code, enhancing verification efficiency with zkOAT mechanism.

To stay adaptable, the protocol adopts a modular design, with plans to integrate o1js for future-proofing.

zk-navigators-mina-dec2023

Mina Navigators is poised to establish a groundbreaking standard for ZK developer engagement, urging innovators to embark on the journey of creating, refining, and contributing to the Mina ecosystem.

Timeline

There are three distinct phases within the Navigator program:

  1. Hackathon: October 9 through November 10
  2. Learn-to-earn challenges: November 2023 through April 2024
  3. Final contribution grant: April 30, 2024
Phase One

In Phase One, known as The Navigators Hackathon, commencing on October 9th, a five-week hackathon unfolds. Outstanding submissions during this period stand a chance to receive MINA token grants and a coveted 'Navigator' badge—a symbol of acceptance into the Navigators program. Those adorned with the badge qualify for Phase Two, engaging in monthly challenges to accrue grants.

Developers are tasked with constructing functional and efficient proof-of-concept applications and tooling for Mina. This endeavor aims to spotlight their ingenuity and technical prowess across diverse use cases on the Mina platform.

Judging involves a panel of seven individuals from the Mina ecosystem. For more comprehensive information regarding grants, submission criteria, and the judging process, the Navigators hub offers detailed insights.

Phase Two

In Phase Two, the Navigators embark on the Build and Learn-to-Earn journey (or, as they humorously term it, Navigate-to-Earn). This marks the initiation of the enjoyable phase. Post-hackathon, Navigators engage in collaborative efforts, either on their personal projects or those of their peers from the hackathon. Their active participation in a 6-month series of challenges positions them to earn monthly grants, facilitating an accelerated learning experience on ZK, Mina, and o1js.

Phase Three

As Phase Three unfolds, the Navigators, having invested six months of unwavering dedication and hard work, seize the opportunity to present their contributions. A panel of community electors becomes the discerning audience, evaluating these endeavors for the coveted grand prizes of MINA grants. Notably, these prizes distinguish themselves by being non-project-specific, emphasizing individual contributions spread across various projects and GitHub repositories.
