COMPETE AT ETHDENVER

Findora is challenging developers to build privacy-preserving applications at EthDenver. The hackathon challenges fall under three separate privacy tracks: Payroll, NFT Marketplace, and Card Games.
1. Private DAO Payroll
Employee pay and salary are always sensitive – and for good reason. If a team’s payment inequality is leaked to the public, it can lead to the disintegration of the team.
Furthermore, contractors and vendors need to be able to keep their payments private so they don’t lose a competitive edge against a competitor who would otherwise try to game the system or undercut their work’s intended value.
With Findora Triple Masking transfer, Zero Knowledge Proof-based payments on stablecoins hide all sensitive information (address, amount, and asset) from the public.
2a. Private NFT Ownership
The implementation of privacy features on NFTs allows owners to better safeguard their ownership of a particular asset, as the address associated with these assets will not be publicly accessible. This reduces the risk of phishing attacks, eliminating a common attack vector that is prevalent online.
Try to find a proper way to verify the ownership of an NFT without revealing the owner’s public key (and address).
2b. Private Tickets
You may prefer to keep your event plans private for various reasons, such as avoiding stalking, judgment from others, or simply avoiding overcrowding at the venue. Some people only want to reveal that they have a ticket to an event to the hosts.
With the Findora platform and the introduction of NFTs on the native chain (through Prism), event tickets can be owned privately. This feature offers a solution for music artists, art galleries, private dinners, weddings, and many other private events to be hosted with confidence.
3. Private Card Games
A card (or card-like) game using Findora mental-poker.
Enjoying a card game on the Ethereum blockchain presents a unique set of challenges compared to playing on a centralized game server. This is due to the transparency of data on the blockchain, where every card is publicly visible. To overcome this, card shuffling must be executed in a manner that prevents nodes/validators from gaining knowledge of any specific card in the deck.
Additionally, players desire to keep their own cards concealed from one another until it is time to reveal them.

Build your Web3 applications on Findora with support from the Findora Foundation.
The Findora Foundation is dedicated to growing our ecosystem and providing the support its expanding community of developers needs to launch their products and reach escape velocity.
Findora builds privacy through advanced zero-knowledge proof cryptography.
An innovative layer-1, it uses a dial-chain architecture, combining a native UTXO ledger optimized for privacy with an EVM chain for programmability and interoperability.
Developers can leverage either model as they build dApps with auditable privacy.
Build your application using Findora’s SDK and offer your users who #ExpectPrivacy from their favorite Web3 platforms.
