February may have been a short month, but Findora still squeezed in a lot of progress! Take a look at some of the highlights including a new CEX listing, engineering updates, and community creations.
LBank is the latest exchange to list FRA, making access to the token even easier. Thanks to Discreet Labs’ efforts, you can expect even more centralized exchanges to be listing FRA in the near future! Listen to Discreet Labs CEO, Sam Harrison, on an LBank Twitter Space discussing what it means to #ExpectPrivacy.
Round One Grantees
Dozens of teams applied to Findora’s grant program in February. The Discreet Labs team has been evaluating applications and will announce the first round of grantees in the coming weeks.
Grantees are welcome to reapply if their initial application isn’t successful, and community members are encouraged to spread the the word to the people building in the space.
We Launched a Podcast!
The Proof of Privacy Podcast with Discreet Labs CEO Sam Harrison launched last month! Sam will be exploring attitudes around privacy with some of the top people in Web3.
Privacy lets you choose how much of yourself to share; it isn’t about keeping secrets but rather about being able to define your relationships with corporations, businesses, and people. Listen on Apple Podcast, Spotify, Pandora, or Stitcher.

Sam was also on the Cheeky Crypto podcast to discuss Findora and a future in Web3 where we can #ExpectPrivacy.
EasyNode’s Unbonding Period Tool
Ever wonder how long much longer your unbonding period will be on Findora? Patrick at EasyNode has made a handy tool that tells you exactly that!
Crypto and Coffee Twitter Space
Jess at @CryptoNCoffeee featured Findora on a recent Twitter space where over 600 people tuned in. We had a great time!
The engineering team at Discreet Labs deployed key features to testnet in February. Here are a few:
With EVM-staking, you’ll be able to stake EVM FRA using your MetaMask wallet. Reducing the friction to stake should encourage more people to stake their FRA!
Prism++ enables NFT transfers on Prism between the EVM and UTXO. This upgrade paves the way for private NFT transfers and opens up a new world of NFT utility.
From the Blog:
Zero-knowledge proofs are one of the most exciting and promising tools currently in Web3. But many people aren’t sure what they are or what potential they hold. We make it easy to understand what ZKPs are, how they work, and just how big an impact they can have on the industry.
Findora builds privacy through advanced zero-knowledge proof cryptography. An innovative layer-1, it combines a native UTXO ledger optimized for privacy with an EVM extension for programmability and interoperability. Developers can leverage either model as they build dApps with auditable privacy.
We appreciate our developers and would love to onboard you to the Findora ecosystem. Please reach out, and join our social channels for more.
