Findora Launches First University Program Focused on Zero-Knowledge Proofs

Findora Launches First University Program Focused on Zero-Knowledge Proofs

Partnering clubs will receive technical support in operating nodes on the network and also enjoy access to leading ZK developers and exclusive hackathons and meetups.

The Findora Foundation is delighted to announce a new university program that is partnering with blockchain clubs at the University of Pennsylvania, University of California at Santa Barbara, Rutgers University, and many more yet to be announced.

This is the first university Web3 program that will focus on the importance of zero-knowledge cryptography.

Through this program, students will gain exclusive access to technical support, vote in future development proposals, and learn from Web3 industry experts. They can even receive engineering support as they build and launch their own dApps on Findora.

The program focuses on Web3 adoption powered by ZK cryptography.

As part of this collaboration with top university blockchain clubs, the Findora Foundation ensures that the brightest minds in the world will be running validator nodes, making the Findora network more decentralized and secure while building the future of zk in Web3.

Inaugural University Program Members

Here’s a partial list of official partners!

  • FranklinDAO – University of Pennsylvania
  • Rutgers Blockchain Hub – Rutgers University at New Brunswick
  • Blockchain at Cal Poly – California Polytechnic University (Cal Poly)
  • Blockchain at UCSB – University of California at Santa Barbara

The Findora Foundation is working with additional clubs and universities, with many more to be announced throughout the year, so stay tuned for updates!

Technical Support, Education, and Hackathons!

Findora is committed to empowering these students by providing technical support, assisting with local meetups, providing on-site visits, and running local hackathons. Through this program, Findora aims to foster a community of blockchain enthusiasts excited about the role zero-knowledge will play in the future of Web3.

Technical Support

The Findora Foundation and its contributors are providing technical support to blockchain clubs and universities, helping students build, secure, and maintain their validator nodes on Findora. Engineers with expertise in EVM, Solidity, UTXO ledgers, RUST, and cryptography will help students and faculty as they learn blockchain technologies.

Meetups & Education

As part of this program, Findora is committed to helping these blockchain clubs hold local meetups that will bring students together to share ideas and knowledge and network with other students. With Findora’s occasional attendance, students will have the unique opportunity to interact with industry leaders and learn from their expertise. Discreet Labs CEO, Sam Harrison, is excited to engage with the next generation of blockchain enthusiasts and will occasionally join these meetups.


Findora is committed to helping these blockchain clubs run hackathons where students can work together to build innovative dApps that leverage zero-knowledge SDKs and selective transparency.

The Findora Foundation is proud to further decentralize the Findora Network with best-in-class validators who are passionate about zk, blockchain, and Web3. The university clubs, in return, get access to professional developers working on some world-leading zero-knowledge proof cryptography.

Are You Interested in Findora’s University Program?

If you’re passionate about Web3 or blockchain, we’d love to bring you on board! As a member, you’ll receive tokens for staking, assistance with node setup, and all the support listed above for your blockchain club and university.

About Findora

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.

We appreciate our developers and would love to onboard you to the Findora ecosystem! Please reach out, and join our social channels for more.
