zkIgnite 3: Pass3

Pass3 serves as a comprehensive solution to address the intricate challenges surrounding identity verification within blockchain ecosystems. In response to the fragmented landscape of existing identity solutions, Pass3 is engineered to integrate these disparate systems and establish a unified identity framework. This initiative aims to streamline user experiences while fortifying security measures.

One of the primary features of Pass3 is its ability to amalgamate identity data from diverse applications into a singular Pass3 identity. This consolidation process significantly simplifies the verification journey for users, eliminating the need to navigate multiple platforms for identity authentication. By centralizing identity information, Pass3 not only enhances user convenience but also promotes efficiency and reliability in identity verification processes.

Upon submission of identity data for verification within Pass3, the platform rigorously validates this information against newly provided data. This verification process serves as a critical safeguard, ensuring the accuracy and integrity of the user’s identity profile. By employing robust verification protocols, Pass3 instills confidence in its users regarding the authenticity of their identity information.

The culmination of these efforts results in the establishment of a seamless identity layer for public addresses within blockchain networks. This layer not only facilitates straightforward identity verification but also accommodates a diverse array of verification needs. Whether it’s conducting routine liveness checks or adhering to stringent KYC/AML compliance requirements, Pass3 offers a versatile solution that adapts to varying verification scenarios.

Furthermore, Pass3 is committed to aligning with industry standards and best practices. In particular, the platform actively supports the RFC for ZkPassport, a burgeoning standard in identity verification protocols. Leveraging its extensive industry experience and foresight into future challenges, Pass3 actively contributes to the development and refinement of identity verification standards.

In essence, Pass3 represents a paradigm shift in the realm of identity verification within blockchain ecosystems. By bridging the gaps between existing identity solutions and establishing a cohesive framework, Pass3 empowers users with a seamless, secure, and universally accessible identity verification solution.

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.


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.
