Ethereum Foundation and Mina Foundation Award a $1.2M Contract to =nil;Foundation to Implement Mina's Privacy-Preserving zk-SNARKs on Ethereum

gbafNews28

SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 30, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — After a rigorous selection process, The Ethereum Foundation and the Mina Foundation have decided to award a $1.2M contract to the Crypto3 team at =nil; Foundation to verify Mina's Pickles SNARK on the Ethereum Virtual Machine. This will allow Mina to be verified on Ethereum, and other EVM based chains such as Polygon, allowing dapps on other chains to access Mina's zk-SNARK-powered decentralized applications (Snapps), giving them access to the features such as privacy preservation data verification, efficient proofs of large computations, and secure logins.

“We are extremely excited to work with Ethereum Foundation and =nil; on this important project,” shared Evan Shapiro, CEO of Mina Foundation. “Ultimately, the verification of the Mina blockchain on Ethereum will enable developers to leverage the benefit of using recursive SNARKs on Ethereum in building dapps. This is how digital verifiability and privacy become the norm.”

Verifying Mina on Ethereum is also a step towards building a bi-directional bridge between the platforms. This full bridge will enable more accessible trustless verification of the Ethereum account state and Ethereum dapps through Mina full nodes on browsers and mobile devices. It can also serve as a component in trustless bridges between different chains, that leverage the cryptographic security of zero knowledge proofs for stronger guarantees on cross-chain state.
