Optimism Retro Funding 3


Retroactive Public Goods Funding rewards contributions to the development and adoption of Optimism.

  1. Badgeholders vote on the projects they think provided impact to the Optimism Collective.
  2. The Optimism Foundation aggregates these votes privately to determine a project's rewards.

Making this process transparent requires a proof that votes were legitimate AND that the allocation algorithm was run correctly, while keeping the votes themselves private. This is exactly the sort of proof zero-knowledge (ZK) cryptography enables.

With this web app, powered by EZKL's ZK-circuits, you can verify that this process was fair, by running proof verification in your browser. You can also tamper with the proofs and allocations to make sure they fail to verify when changed.
