About Event

ZPrize is accelerating the future of cryptography with a half-day summit dedicated to bringing together the competition’s winners, architects, sponsors and participants for a lively celebration of achievements. The celebration will feature ZK Technology Trivia and sponsored panels from Aleo, AMD, Samsung Next and more. Plus, attendees can expect a range of all-encompassing educational content on a variety of subjects, including conversations on Minimizing Latency with MSM Operations, and Accelerating NTT Operations on an FPGA. With such an intentionally developed program of events, there’s a little bit of everything for both the ZK-curious and the general ETHDenver audience at large.

Come join the celebration!

The event will take place in conjunction with ETHDenver 2023 on March 1st, from 1:00-4:30 pm at the BUIDLHub Workshop Stage - 1812 35th Street, Denver, CO 80216.

ZPrize - ZPrize is a collaborative effort across the blockchain industry that includes over 32 partners and sponsors contributing time, effort, and resources to make this initiative a success. If you'd like to become a partner, please reach out here.

Aleo - Aleo is a developer platform for building fully private, scalable and cost-effective applications. Using zero-knowledge cryptography, Aleo moves smart contract execution off-chain to enable a diverse range of decentralized applications that are both entirely private and can scale to thousands of transactions per second. Built on an open, public blockchain, Aleo brings the flexibility of Ethereum but with a more scalable architecture in which miners don’t need to re-run every transaction, but simply verify their correctness.

AMD - AMD has grown into a global company setting the standard for modern computing through major technological achievements and many important industry firsts along the way. Today, AMD is the high performance and adaptive computing leader, powering the products and services that define the future of the data center, artificial intelligence, PCs, gaming, communications, and automotive.

Samsung Next - Samsung NEXT is a multifaceted innovation group within Samsung Electronics dedicated to identifying new growth opportunities in technology and beyond.

Manta - Manta Network is the layer one blockchain that brings programmable privacy to web3 using zero-knowledge proofs. Its suite of core products and technologies, including zkNFTs and MantaPay, offers user-friendly access to powerful ZK-enabled use cases. Leveraging the Poseidon hash and its own cryptographic innovations, Manta Network offers the fastest prover speed of any ZK network.

The project is created by a team of experienced founders from prestigious institutions like Harvard, MIT, and Algorand. Manta Network has received investments from some of the top web3 investment funds, including Binance Labs and Polychain, and has grown through participation in the best web3 accelerators, including Alliance DAO and Berkeley Blockchain Xcelerator. Manta Network is poised to bring the next generation of web3 users and usher in a new chapter of privacy-focused web3 applications.

DZK - DZK focuses on efficient, application-specific proof systems that accelerate emerging ZK use cases. DZK adopts a blend of software and hardware optimizations, and has designed application-specific protocols with new proof techniques that work well with consumer-grade hardware, specifically GPU. Many new techniques arising from this application-specific approach are unheard of in this industry. We have learned lessons in designing an ASIC for zero-knowledge proofs, and realize how important an application-specific approach, and thus programmability, is needed, and we believe that we are ready to make impossible things possible.
