On 29th October, we hosted an online meetup about blockchain, zero-knowledge proofs and e-voting. Sikoba’s CTO Guillaume Drevon first provided an introduction to zero-knowledge proofs, then presented the itugen project (http://www.itugen.com) and showed how secure yet transparent e-voting systems can be constructed using modern cryptography, ZKP and blockchain.
Sikoba's founder Alex Kampa gave a pitch on Pitch Your Startup competition on 15th of September at 2020 ICT Spring. Three pitch events took place from November 2019 to September 2020 with more than 320 applications from 8 categories.
During this online Ask-Me-Anything Session we answered questions about the current state of SikobaPay project. Recording of the livestream.
In this meetup, we introduced itugen, which will be a blockchain platform exclusively dedicated to e-voting. Using the most recent advances in zero-knowledge protocols as well as quantum-resistant cryptography, itugen will provide maximum transparency and ease of use, while ensuring voter privacy, voter confidentiality, secrecy of ongoing voting and protection against double votes.
