New æUnited Bounty for cryptographers: ZKP-based private transactions (CHF 10,000)

Private transactions on the æternity blockchain based on Zero-Knowledge Proof

With Iris protocol upgrade more crypto primitives for BLS12-381 have been introduced. This enables for example zero-knowledge proofs and more multi-signature schemes.

In order to demonstrate these capabilities we are searching for a volunteer (or a group of volunteers) in the community that build a privacy enabling application similar to on aeternity. The goal is to have a usable application where people can play around with at least on æternity Testnet.



  • Write all required components (contracts, frontend, …)
    • Frontend should allow the user to connect their Superhero Wallet for easy deposits. :superhero:
  • Deploy on testnet
  • Provide meaningful README(s) :clipboard:
    • How to build, run and use the application
  • Publish the source-code under ISC License
  • Publish a video how to use the application
  • Write a dedicated blog-article that includes the video :tv:


  • We know that this requires a lot of work and deep knowledge in cryptography! :pager:
  • You might miss some tooling that needs to be built by yourself. :wrench:
    • Maybe you can even contribute a new set of functionality to the Sophia standard library :wink:
    • In case you have any serious blockers that cannot be solved by you or your team let us know! :speaking_head:
  • In case you’d like to tackle this and you don’t agree with the size of the bounty get in touch with us to discuss what’s possible.

In fact, I only need an example of smart contract, which enables anonymous transfer of AE through smart contract. With this example, I can integrate it into Box APP

well, you need to find somebody who is willing to tackle this bounty. this is not a trivial task and there might be unforeseen hurdles.
