Product and Technology

Releasing the Alpha version of Valid One

AI technology has been evolving fast. Deep Fake generated video and audio are already quite hard for ordinary people to tell. Internet frauds and scams are increasing to a level never seen before. We predict in a few years, everything you watch, hear and read on the Internet may be fake unless proven otherwise. We need a completely new way to rebuild trust and privacy on the Internet.

As a company which is determined to defend trust and privacy in Web3, zCloak Network sets its target to defeat AI powered Internet frauds with all the identity solutions it has developed — introducing the Valid One protocol.

Valid One is a revolutionary protocol for authentic identity verification in the AGI era, offering fast user onboarding with Passkey technology and reliable identity checks through social attestation. It supports almost all the public blockchains, facilitating seamless digital interactions without gas fees. The Valid One product is the first of its kind which is full-stack on-chain, meaning the frontend, backend and the wallet itself are all hosted in a blockchain — the Internet Computer. The user experience is exceptional as there are no mnemonics or passwords like traditional Web3 Dapps. All that is required from the user is to open the valid.one website, do a Face ID/Touch ID tap and all the keys will be set up within 5 seconds, meanwhile providing hardware wallet level security. With the help of zCloak’s zk-Coprocessor, it will ensure utmost privacy by protecting user data with advanced cryptography. Valid One merges speed, trust, flexibility, and privacy, making it a comprehensive solution for secure and efficient digital identity management in today’s interconnected and rapidly evolving digital landscape.

For the hacker team, zCloak engineers brought the latest work from zCloak Network — a chain abstraction-based ZK coprocessor to mentors, which gained great feedback. At zCloak, we have employed the Internet Computer (ICP) to serve as a coprocessor for Ethereum and other public blockchains. Our innovative approach to the ZK Coprocessor, grounded in chain abstraction, simplifies the overall architecture of ZK applications and facilitates the cross-chain interoperability of ZKP verification outcomes.

During the panel, the founder of zCloak Network, w3tester shared his idea on the current Web3 security issues in the age of AGI. He mentioned that As the world is increasingly prevalent with convenience brought by applications of AGI (Artificial General Intelligence), daily online interactions face significant challenges such as deepfake scams, which use AI to manipulate media, presenting critical threats including identity theft, financial fraud, and the spread of disinformation.

To end the deep fake fraud, zCloak Network dedicates its R&D work to the frontier of Web3 technology, merging decentralized identity systems and zero-knowledge proofs within its flagship “Valid One” protocol to ensure top-level privacy and trust in the AGI era.
