zkIgnite 3: zkEmail in o1js

zkIgnite 3: zkEmail in o1js

The proposal puts forward an innovative approach leveraging email server domains to directly generate proofs into smart contract logic, thereby facilitating a range of practical applications.
These include:

– Authentication of ownership for social media handles or off-chain payments.
– Verification of work history for credible and anonymous reviews.
– Creation of an email wallet for secure transactions or account recovery.

Inspired by the existing zkEmail project, zkignite aims to overhaul the proving system using kimchi with o1js. This entails two main tasks:

1. Proving email headers and signatures through a combination of SHA256, RSA, and custom email verifier circuits.
2. Utilizing Regex for email content verification and structure confirmation.

Introducing a comprehensive ZK Regex package in o1js will significantly enhance web2 interoperability with the MINA blockchain, enabling private verification of text data on-chain.

The envisioned end-user journey involves zkApp developers defining the necessary email information, users providing raw email data for proof generation, and subsequent verification on the Mina blockchain. This seamless process promises enhanced security and reliability for a wide range of applications.

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.
