Manta Network, the fastest zero-knowledge layer one protocol focused on on-chain privacy, is pleased to announce our new partnership with QuestN, the one-stop tool for marketing, growth, and analysis in Web3. Through this partnership, Manta Network will provide the 2-million questers community with the ability to mint QuestN zkFuturists, which are private soul-bound tokens (zkSBTs) that allow users to privately verify their on-chain activities related to QuestN without compromising any information or data leakage about their on-chain activity.
By leveraging ZK technology, QuestN zkFuturists allows QuestN community members to have a zkDID when enjoying Web3 products and experiences. The zkSBTs are powerful and innovative solutions for participating in the QuestN communities in a more secure and private manner.
Qualifying & Minting your QuestN zkFuturists
To mint your QuestN zkFuturists, the private soulbound tokens, you’ll need:
- An EVM-compatible wallet such as MetaMask that holds your QuestN SBTs for Manta Network’s NPO platform to verify;
- The QuestN App and an account (create one by connecting an EVM-compatible wallet) to collect and mint QuestN SBTs;
- The Manta Wallet to hold your newly minted zkSBT.
QuestN SBT is achievement NFT on QuestN platform. QuestN SBT are proofs of achievement obtained by users after performing on-chain actions. The more collected proof-of-achievement NTFs represent the user’s higher on-chain reputation and the greater chances of receiving potential rewards.
To obtain a QuestN SBT, simply create an account on QuestN and start collect on the platform. From there, you can use three of collected QuestN SBTs to mint one enhanced QuestN zkFuturist, through the Manta Network NPO. For a step-by-step guide, follow our tutorial here.

The Existing On-Chain Identity Problem
With the current state of public blockchains, every on-chain action is recorded, immutable, and fully transparent. While this transparency was originally necessary to provide trustless verifiability, it created many issues around surveillance, non-consenting data access, and, ultimately, an infringement on user safety and security when performing actions on-chain. Fortunately, Manta Network’s implementation of zero-knowledge proofs enables the same on-chain trustless verifiability without the necessity of full on-chain transparency. As a result, users are able to benefit from a seamless, modular privacy experience.
Manta Network’s research into zero-knowledge proof circuits has been implemented into one of its flagship platforms, the NPO, allowing users to mint zkSBTs. zkSBTs are on-chain, verifiable credentials that offer a trustless layer of privacy. Combined with proof keys, users can verify their ownership of zkSBTs without even connecting a wallet, enabling a seamless and modular privacy experience when interacting with applications.
