none 0.0 0


In this tutorial, we will explore the integration of Zero-Knowledge Proofs (ZKPs) with smart contracts in the Celo ecosystem. We will guide you through the process of creating a simple Celo smart contract that incorporates ZKPs. By the end of this tutorial, you will have a solid understanding of how ZKPs can enhance privacy and security within Celo smart contracts.
