ZeroPass (my team) is working on 3 EOS projects, the first one we are working on currently on full-time, and others when/if the financing would allow it.
enables you to reveal the minimal amount of data to the community, but still maintain the reassurance in each other’s uniqueness.
It on-boards and validates massive Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) on the chain provided by ICAO and would on-chain validate Passport signatures (delivered via NFC enabled Android or iPhone) and attest EOS accounts. No third party needed.
Very useful for EOS wide Sybil resistance infrastructure, “UBI” token claims/airdrops, low friction/high privacy voting,…
• The off-chain solution is done, needs financing to bring different crypto into wasm contracts; RSASSA-PSS signatures, ECDSA signatures for other ECC curves (P-384 and IETF rfc5639 crypto, mainly pushed by Germany to the EU; BrainpoolP256r1, BrainpoolP384r1, BrainpoolP512r1) + Corresponding security audits.
Also needs UI portals done.
⮞ ROW - Recoverable Online Wallets (3rd place in Beyond Blockchain Hackathon)
Recoverable Online Wallets, or ROW, is a vision of making blockchain UIs mostly disappear, without introducing trust. With an emphasis on low mental costs of users’ actions, instead of converting authentication into a series of (mindless) steps. Account recovery mimics how people get into their house once they get locked. It relies on a multisig of trusted contacts.
• It uses webauthn to sign transactions and to authenticate. It adds devices under the account and saves KeyIDs in the smart contract, thus eliminating the need for the server. Also removes the risk of the server losing the KeyIDs, which previously meant forever lost key and credentials- which allows the system to run solely on the webuthn keys. ROW takes 2 approvals (multisig) for usage. Usually, one device is your PC TPM/enclave, and the other is a phone TPM/enclave. ROW can support any combination of webauthn keys, including external yubikeys.
It removes the need for passwords, emails, mnemonics, etc. In the future owner recovery UI will be added to manage the trusted friends multisig. 2/4 multisig, with 2 current devices and 2 trusted contacts.
• Only basic POC is done, but the majority of on-chain work is prepared.
It needs UI, recovery UI, security audit for on-chain RSA implementation (windows machines). Needs UAL integration work, so online wallets can integrate it. It needs work on auto PowerUp functions and account creation on the first transfer functionality which would greatly help to hide the UI from the typical user.
⮞ stEOS (not a final name)
Trustless tokenized pool with vote exchange and rex rewards integrated.
It democratizes the vote exchange and makes it transparent on-chain. It gives community interest (rex + vote exchange) accruing liquid token they can use directly in eos defi pools. It also captures any stake-weighted inflation and makes the stEOS token the new “sound money” on the EOS blockchain.
• It’s fairly done on testnet. Needs some additional work on Portal (voting portal for community-owned proxy “explorer”) + audits (people need to drop eos into it similar to rex - exploits can be very costly).
