UniRep Protocol

January 4th, 2023
Anonymity gives people a clean slate to express themselves, unconnected to an existing identity. Reputation provides context: it reveals an aspect about a person’s history in relation to others. UniRep protocol adds reputation to anonymity, allowing people to provide relational context without revealing specifics of their history.

Devcon VI Recap

November 15th, 2022
The potential of zero-knowledge cryptography was on full display at Devcon VI in Bogota, which featured a dedicated ZK track for the first time ever. Since most of PSE’s work has happened in the 3 years since Devcon V in Osaka, it was also a debut for many of our projects – and many of our team members met for the first time! There was a lot we were excited to share with the community. In this post, we’ll revisit some highlights of our time in Bogota, including talks by PSE team members and the Devcon VI Temporary Anonymous Zone.

Semaphore Community Grants

September 21st, 2022
The Privacy and Scaling Explorations Team is sponsoring a dedicated round of grants for applications that integrate the Semaphore anonymous signaling protocol. Semaphore provides zero-knowledge primitives that enable developers to build powerful privacy preserving applications. With this grant round, we’re encouraging builders to try out these tools in real-world applications that matter to your communities.
