Manta Network, the fastest zero-knowledge layer one protocol focused on on-chain privacy, is pleased to announce a partnership with TaskOn, a platform that boosts the completion for various Web3 tasks in a decentralized way. Through this partnership, Manta Network will provide the TaskOn community members with the ability to mint the zkElite, which are private soul-bound tokens (zkSBTs) that allow users to privately verify their on-chain activities related to TaskOn without compromising any information or data leakage about their on-chain activity.
Qualifying & Minting your zkElite
To mint a zkElite, TaskOn community members must collect TaskOn CAPs. TaskOn CAP (Collaboration Achievement Proof) is an NFT badge minted by TaskOn. It aims to be an easy-use solution for campaign creators and projects to distribute rewards for their users, record users’ engagement and manage them as the on-chain credential of their loyalty system on TaskOn. You can explore the TaskOn campaigns page for opportunities to mint your CAPs.
Once you have earned your TaskOn Caps, you can mint your zkElite as a privacy-enhanced on-chain representation of your accomplishment. To mint your TaskOn zkElite, head over to the Manta Network NPO page. 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.
About Manta Network
Manta Network is the zk layer 1 blockchain with the fastest prover speed and most decentralized trusted setup that brings programmable privacy to web3. Its suite of core products and technologies, including zkNFTs and MantaPay, offers user-friendly access to powerful ZK-enabled use cases.
The project is created by a team of experienced founders from prestigious institutions, including Harvard, MIT, and Algorand. The team began its research on Zero Knowledge Proof in 2019 during a cross-border payment research project under the MIT Digital Currency Initiative with the Monetary Authority of Singapore. Manta Network has received investments from many of the top web3 investment funds, including Binance Labs and Polychain Capital. It has grown through participation in the best web3 accelerators, including Alliance DAO and Berkeley Blockchain Xcelerator. Manta Network is poised to bring the next generation of web3 users and usher in a new chapter of privacy-focused web3 applications.
