Mission & Key Concepts

=nil; Foundation is a pioneer in zero-knowledge technology, dedicated to making zkProofs and trustless data management accessible for developers.

Our solutions facilitate scalable trustless computing and data access, organized in one flexible toolchain secured by Ethereum.

Our products are built with a complex tech stack and fueled by advanced cryptography to facilitate the adoption of zk technology.

=Nil;Foundation develops data access mechanisms that facilitate insecure data transfer between public databases (e.g. Bitcoin, Ethereum, Solana, others). This is done by combining zero-knowledge proof cryptography and a classic DBMS-like approach.

Our current customers have invested in our technology through grants, including the Ethereum Foundation, MINA, Solana, Starkware, etc.

In recent months we have completed our first ever funding round with Polychain as the lead investment (and some others) with valuation ~220 mUSD and are now actively scaling the team.


Get to the forefront of zero-knowledge development

We are a global team of professionals working on research and development in zero-knowledge cryptography and trustless data access.

Join us to contribute to our cutting-edge toolchain, enabling secure and cost-effective implementation of trustless data management.

History & Roadmap

  • 2018: =nil; Foundation established, aiming to implement best practices of database management systems to the crypto industry through research and development in applied cryptography.
  • 2019: Cementing the research focus on zero-knowledge technology to fit target product requirements and foster a trustless ecosystem development.
  • 2020: First version of Crypto3 suite for essential cryptographic operations released. First public `DROP DATABASE * prototype launches.
  • 2021: =nil; Placeholder proof system introduced, along with the industry's first zkBridges and consensus proofs. zkLLVM development initiated. Grants received from Ethereum Foundation, Mina Foundation, and Solana Foundation.
  • 2022: First public investment round to support the release of Proof Market and zkLLVM, and facilitate `DROP DATABASE * release.
  • 2023: Introduced Lorem Ipsum – Ethereum trustless data oracle to enable widespread zkBridging and secure data access. `DROP REPLICA * cluster demo released.
  • Q4 2023: `DROP DATABASE * first release
  • Q1 2024: `DROP REPLICA * public deployment release
