“If I had asked people what they wanted, they would have said faster horses.”

Henry Ford

This quote by the Model T Inventor and Great American Industrialist Henry Ford rings true in today’s cryptocurrency landscape as product development is progressing at a very rapid pace. Uniswap’s announcement regarding their V3 upgrade was met with skepticism and muted fanfare due to it not addressing its users most immediate needs including high gas fees and impermanent loss.

We feel this is a short-term oversight by the crypto community and have aligned our product vision with supporting Ethereum’s largest dApp by users and…

People have been conducting trade since the dawn of civilization. The most fundamental activity in regards to exchanging goods & services underpins modern global economies.

Crypto is a mirror of the real world. Centralized exchanges were important early gateways to allow crypto users access to a range of cryptocurriences. Since the Summer of 2020 and the Rise of DeFi, decentralized exchanges (DEXs) such as Uniswap have significantly grown in importance with their ease of use and lack of KYC to trade.

Zoracles (ZORA) was launched on Uniswap last November and the process to list the Zora token was seamless. This…

A Brief History

There are a lot of confusing and contradictory theories about what credit is and why it exists. Some people think credit is necessary for an individual and an economy. Some people believe credit is an evil tool used by predators to extract other’s wealth.

Although the economic and philosophical debate will continue, the fact remains that borrowers and lenders are concepts that have existed and will continue to exist for the foreseeable future. Credit is an…

Satoshi Nakamoto made a giant leap in our digital world by introducing a mechanism for creating digital scarcity. Nakamoto consensus fulfilled every cypherpunk’s dream of creating a digital currency outside the influence of government. Combining a proof of work mining algorithm along with blockchain technology and cryptography has ignited a financial movement independent of state control that gives everyone a viable alternative to our current financial system.

Bitcoin solved the double-spend problem and the holy grail of creating a trusted yet decentralized electronic cash system. This allows participants on its peer-to-peer network to validate each transaction and ensure every BTC…

Hope everyone enjoyed a safe and fun New Year around the world. The Zoracles community has come together and has been very supportive of our mission and we would like to thank each and every one of you for your support and contributions.

Zora 2.5 ushers in a new era of decentralization and governance for Zoracles Protocol. Our platform for governance is officially in beta and accessible at https://gov.zoracles.com. We will be building a robust UI during 2021 to enable the functionality currently deployed on Ethereum Mainnet. …

The Zora Way

Zoracles Protocol was designed to provide confidential data to smart contracts. Our foundation has been developing Zk-Snarks to hide inputs from data sources that supply price feed information through Open Oracle.

We will continue to further develop this market vertical while pursuing a very promising opportunity with a new product: Zora.cc — Confidential Credit Checks.

Our team views confidential credit checks as a gateway to solving decentralized identity. We are exploring a “Proof of Identity” algorithm that would deliver credit scores on-chain via aggregation of API data from the major credit reporting agencies. …

Zora 2.0 is officially listed on Uniswap as of Nov. 30th 2020! We are proud at the reception of our “Upgradeable Token” and always strive for constant improvement.

Currently, the team is working on Zora 2.5, which will include a founding team vesting schedule, and as we did with the MINTING function, we intend to put the protocol completely in the hands of the community by subjecting any contract changes to our full governance process.

There are a few tradeoffs in decentralizing Zoracles Protocol this early in development that we want to bring to the attention of the community.

The…


With Zora 2.0 launched and migration complete, we wanted to take a step back and provide our community with our current thinking on how we plan to position Zoracles protocol for future development.

For the new community members, it is probably prudent we give a brief background on the project and the product under development.

Zoracles builds zero-knowledge oracles for confidential data to smart contracts.

We have already secured a partnership with Deus Finance and working on a number of others. On this journey, price feed data will continue to be the foundation of our business development efforts along…

We would like to thank all of the community members, advisors and strategic partners that provided feedback in pushing forward an upgrade in Zoracles Protocol. Our governance token Zora 2.0 is now more functional, robust and most importantly, upgradeable for future development.

Zoracles Protocol developers have been tirelessly working over the last several weeks to create and test features that will enhance the experience of Zora token holders.

The following changes have been made to Zora 2.0:

Token Supply — Zoracles was launched with 100 Zora and each token represented 1 vote on the community oversight committee. As the project…
