Manta Network is proud to announce that ReadON, one of Manta Network’s ecosystem projects deployed on the Arbitrum ecosystem, is enabling support for zkSBTs to enable private identity verification on its application. Starting today, users with zkSBTs such as zkBAB, the ARB Early Supporter zkPass, and the zkGalxe Passport can use those private credentials for verifying their identity on ReadON. Furthermore, Manta Network in conjunction with ReadON are introducing the ReadON zkPass.

The ReadON zkPass offers a privacy-enhanced version of the ReadON Pass, powered by ZK. To obtain a ReadON Pass SBT, simply create an account on ReadON. From there, you can use the obtained ReadON Pass to mint a ReadON zkPass through the Manta Network NPO.

By proving their ownership and eligibility using this ReadON zkPass, users can also participate in the ReadON ecosystem without revealing their personal information or wallet address. The ReadON zkPass is designed to incentivize user engagement and participation on the platform while providing a more private and secure way to access the content. By leveraging zk technology, ReadON zkPass can offer users a powerful and innovative solution for participating in the ReadON ecosystem in a more secure and private manner.

Minting a ReadON zkPass

To mint your ReadON zkPass, you’ll need the following:

  1. An EVM-compatible wallet such as MetaMask that holds your ReadON Pass for Manta Network’s NPO platform to verify;
  2. The ReadOn App and an account (create one by connecting an EVM-compatible wallet) to mint the ReadOn Pass;
  3. The Manta Wallet to hold your newly minted zkSBT.

You can head over to the Manta Network NPO platform to mint your ReadON zkPass. For a full tutorial on how to mint zkSBTs, please check out our guide here.
