This was the first Consensus since 2019 to meet in person, and it felt special to go this year. Findora was a core sponsor and seven members of the Findora team managed to attend, the most that have ever gone.
We went to find people to help build the future of privacy on Web3 and honestly, we were touched by the amount of support we found from other teams. Consensus is the largest crypto event of the year and it’s inspiring to see so many people working together to make the world a better place.
We hosted and attended a number of successful side events as part of our mission to scale Ethereum privacy. We are thankful to everyone who worked on those and made them a success.
Here are some of the key highlights and takeaways from our time at Consensus2022.
Findora at ZPRIZE Happy Hour
We got to attend the ZPRIZE Happy Hour side event. ZPRIZE is an initiative “dedicated to accelerating zero-knowledge cryptography.” We had the largest representation at their Happy Hour event which was well received.
ZPRIZE rewards select teams who make breakthroughs in ZKP technology or applications, and all winning submissions become open-source libraries. Findora is a proud sponsor of their prizes (check accelerating elliptic curve operations and finite field arithmetic wasm track for more details). Click here to learn more.
The Zero-Knowledge BBQ
Findora brought together over 100 dApp developers, engineers, investors, and leading researchers in the field of zero-knowledge proofs to discuss building ZK privacy using the Findora Foundation’s $100 Million Ecosystem Fund.
We met a lot of creative people with brilliant ideas, and we are still in the process of following up with all of you. We are excited to see what future you will build with Findora!

It was a party:
“Minting Supercars in the Metaverse”
Discreet Labs CEO, Warren Paul Anderson, moderated a panel on “Minting Supercars in the Metaverse” with Yonathan Lapchik, CEO of Suku, and Tom Watson, Vice President of Licensing, Partnerships, and Metaverse, at McLaren Automotive Ltd.
Suku is an NFT metaverse company that enables brands to create, monetize, and drive consumer engagement with digital content. They’ll be working with McLaren to Mint NFTs of luxury supercars on InfiniteWorld, part of the Suku ecosystem.
New and Improved Website
In honor of Consensus, we launched our new and improved website, which clarifies Findora’s vision and project direction. Findora is all about scaling Ethereum privacy, and we wanted the project website to reflect that. Updates include a new section highlighting the Findora Ecosystem, an updated wiki, and reorganized documentation.
Not only does it introduce the new messaging around Scaling Ethereum Privacy, but it also gives an up-to-date overview of Findora’s technology stack, including Findora OG, Findora X, Findora ZK, and Findora CR. Each component has its own page with beautiful images showcasing how the technology works.
Check out the new website here. It’s still a work in progress, so keep refreshing your browser for new updates.
Gifting Developers with Better Documentation
We’re also overhauling our documentation to make it easier for developers to understand what Findora is and what they can do with it.
We want it to be as easy as possible for you to explore Findora and help it reach its full potential. We’re going through the Wiki, Gitbook, and FAQs to make it easier for you to navigate Findora and learn how to develop with it.
👉Check out our new Developer Portal and our revamped Github!
We appreciate all the feedback from the developer community, which helped us reorganize the content, so please keep it coming. We want to make Findora as valuable and accessible as possible. If you’d like to leave feedback on the website or developer portal, join our Discord and leave comments for us on our #💻dev-chat channel.
Apply for Grant Money
We are always searching for talented developers to build on Findora. We’re looking forward to partnering with new teams to help create the future of privacy finance.
Do you have a great idea or project that needs funding? Apply for a grant with Findora. The Findora $100 Million Ecosystem Fund is reserved for teams that will bolster the Findora ecosystem and build a private future on Web3.
