ZK Workshop Recap

Thanks to everyone who came out to the ZK 101 Workshop last week! We discussed ZK Proofs, one of the most promising technologies in blockchain. In this session, we went over the theoretical foundations, its applications, and a small demo.

For those who missed it, no worries. Slides and video recording from the session are available below:

Hack Web3 EasyA Hackathon @ Harvard Recap

This week, W3B sent a team to the Hack Web3 by TRON x Easy @ Harvard. Zile, Intel, Austin, Brandon (joined remotely), and Julia teamed up and built GroupBy, a blockchain-powered split payment platform running on TRON blockchain.

This was Zile, Austin, and Juliaโ€™s first Hackathon. After 24 hours of sleepless grinding, the team was able to win 4th place and a sizable prize!

Quoting Julia, the experience was โ€œGood enough for meโ€ and from Austin, โ€œThanks for everything.โ€
