Join us for SNARK Tank

Whether you’ve been with us from Day 1 or are just joining Aleo zkHouse, you’re encouraged to participate in SNARK Tank, our final event. Day 4 wraps up zkHouse’s four-day inclusive and interactive experience for zero-knowledge enthusiasts.

At SNARK Tank, we invite you to pitch your ZK projects to investors to potentially get the funding — a share of the impressive $200K prize pool — you need to make your idea a reality. You can also watch the pitches to see what projects rise to the top. It’s all happening inside SoHo House Istanbul’s beautiful velvet-covered screening room. 

​Plus: We’re excited to introduce a first-of-its-kind integration with Icebreaker, where the more you participate in our zkHouse activities, the more likely you’ll receive a dynamically integrated NFT. As an early user, you’ll also get onboarded Icebreaker, a decentralized networking platform leveraging zero-knowledge proofs.
