Development

  1. Blind Bidder — an implementation of Private Proof-of-Stake highlighted above which enables the Block Generators to compete for the leadership and the ability propagate a candidate block, as a result, without a need to reveal their identities and the stake sizes. The Blind Bidder module utilizes zero-knowledge cryptography to curtail the need for transparent values while simultaneously guaranteeing the soundness of the outcome.
  2. Cryptography — a library of cryptographic primitives extensively utilized in the protocol. The library includes an optimized version of BLS, Bulletproofs implementation and the accompanying circuits, an in-house variant of a MiMC hash function (soon to be superseeded by Poseidon), Ristretto and ZeroCaf (former Corretto), a Bulletproof-friendly implementation of the Ristretto scalar field, along with other generic primitives.
  3. Database — a library of blockchain storage-related and networking primitives.
