Zero-Knowledge Proofs in Blockchain Meetup

We've joined forces with Work on Blockchain to bring you two of the leading blockchain projects - AZTEC Protocol and Clearmatics. They will be leading discussion around the theory underpinning zero-knowledge proofs and how they're using them to introduce greater privacy to blockchain. This meetup is free to attend and will take place at Primalbase London, in Moorgate. Food and refreshments will be provided and there will be plenty of time for networking before and after.

The transparency and lack of anonymity inherent in a blockchain like Bitcoin render it unfit for purpose for a lot of potential use cases. The movement toward zero-knowledge protocols on the likes of Ethereum is in an attempt to offer greater privacy without sacrificing any of blockchain’s core tenets. Companies like Zcash are helping zero-knowledge protocols gain ‘mainstream’ interest, as developers look for ways to address the current problems associated with fully decentralised public chains. It is currently one of the most discussed issues in blockchain development and the focus of a significant amount of work.

At this event, you’ll hear from the projects blazing a trail, meet researchers and developers working in the space, and gain a fuller understanding of the challenges facing their development.

Speakers

Antoine Rondelet, Cryptography Lead at Clearmatics

Tom Pocock, CEO of AZTEC Protocol

More to be announced...

This event takes place ahead of our week-long practical workshop diving deeper into zero knowledge proofs. Starting Monday 17th June, the course will culminate in a hackathon, during which all participants will have the opportunity to put to work what they’ve learned over the first three days, under the watchful eye of our expert team of instructors.
