Gearing Up for Growth
An updated Partnership Program, more zkSDKs, the Rosetta API – all this and more on Findora’s 2023 Roadmap.
We are excited to share Findora’s 2023 roadmap with the community. After a year of laying a solid foundation, Discreet Labs is focused on scaling the Findora blockchain, developing its ecosystem, and securing strategic partnerships.

Findora’s 2023 Roadmap
Highlights of Findora’s Roadmap
First stop, EVM staking! A feature eagerly anticipated by the community, it will let you stake FRA and earn rewards directly from a staking dashboard with your MetaMask wallet. Currently, only UTXO FRA can be staked after they’ve been transferred from MetaMask to the Findora Wallet via Prism. EVM staking will simplify the staking process for the Findora community.
Don’t wait to stake!

You can already protect the token amounts and token types used in a transaction with the Findora wallet – “Triple Masking” will take that a step further. Triple Masking is an internal term for shielding the sending address and receiving addresses, in addition to the token amount and token type. This will be a key tool for DAOs and dApps seeking to provide their users with the confidentiality they expect for their personal finances and open the door to many use cases for Findora.
Multisig Wallet Support
Users will soon have the ability to set up multi-sig wallets on Findora. This is a key feature for managing community funds, and in the future will be integrated with triple masking so DAOs can protect their contractors and community members.
On-Chain Number Randomizing
Findora will work with an established partner to launch on-chain number randomizing. This feature will be essential for Web3 game developers on Findora, leveraging Findora hidden-state data to create unique gameplay.
The Rosetta API lets blockchains easily integrate their blockchain with wallets, large exchanges, and apps. Adding the Rosetta API will empower developers, and set Findora up for increased adoption in Web3.
Findora’s Revamped Partnership Program
Stay tuned for the imminent opening of Findora’s Grant Program! The Findora Foundation has pledged up to $100 million, over the course of several years, for the development of Findora’s ecosystem. All teams are welcome to apply: port an existing project, build a basic infrastructure dApp, or create a dApp using a zkSDK. More information on the Partnership Program will be released in February.

Introducing ZK-NFTs with Prism++
Prism++ refers to a feature that will allow NFTs, typically confined to EVM environments, to migrate to Findora’s UTXO layer. The home of Findora’s zk-cryptography, the UTXO layer facilitates all zk-enabled transactions. Moving NFTs to the UTXO will allow for “ZK-NFTs” and open up a whole new set of use cases for NFTs in Web3.
Polygon Bridge to Findora
The Rialto Bridge team is getting close to deploying a path between Findora and Polygon. The bridge will open up Findora to liquidity from Polygon and allow Polygon-based assets to migrate to Findora for confidential transfers. Rialto already connects Findora with Ethereum and BNB Chain.
Findora will allow developers to deploy parallel app chains on Findora. With a dedicated chain for their app, developers will have complete freedom to develop according to their needs, balancing decentralization with through-put as needed, while still leveraging zk features as needed. No need to share block space – deploy a modular app-chain with zk functionality on Findora!
Auditability and Compliance Features
Initially proposed in FIP-2, Findora plans to deploy viewing keys to build auditability into protected transactions. Viewing keys will allow token issuers, like Circle, to create encrypted assets only they can audit without making them public on-chain. They will be an essential tool for institutions, giving them the ability to move into Web3 and paving the way for mass adoption.
On-Chain Governance Voting
The community will soon play a much bigger role in Findora’s direction. An on-chain governance voting system will be deployed in 2023. FRA token holders will be able to vote on Findora Approval Proposals and other issues to determine the future of the chain.
Community Grant Approvals
Findora will also add a community grant, where projects can compete for funds from the community. The community will evaluate and vote on which projects they would like to see receive grant money.

Leading the Charge
Leading the charge into 2023 is Discreet Labs’ new CEO, Sam Harrison. Sam will focus on growth and adoption. Sam is a charismatic leader who will play a key role in bringing roadmap items to fruition.
2023 will be an exciting year for Findora as users and projects come to expect even more robust zk toolkits to bring Web3 into Web2. Findora is ready to give them exactly that.
Learn the Basics
Get the quick introduction to all things Findora including its dual-chain architecture, wallet, and mission
Findora is a Layer-1 protocol delivering zero-knowledge solutions to Web3.
Findora integrates two ledgers into a single chain: an EVM ledger for interoperability and a UXTO ledger optimized for zk operations. This dual-layer architecture lets Findora encrypt blockchain data for programmable transparency and public use. By providing new use cases, Findora’s zk tech prepares Web3 for real-world adoption.
