My Zero Knowledge University Journey

Zero Knowledge University is an Online Course and Informal Study Group, for software developers to learn how to build market-ready products in Web3 using zero-knowledge proof technology. The goal is to launch a ZK-product on mainnet within a couple of months. Therefore it is about Web3 technologies.

Web3 is an idea for a new iteration of the World Wide Web based on blockchain technology, which incorporates concepts such as decentralization and token-based economics.

I am a fan of Web3 and I believe Web3 will spread too many areas. Since it gives enhanced security, greater transparency, instant traceability and ownership. Of course, education in Zero Knowledge University is mostly about zero knowledge proof. A zero-knowledge proof (ZKP) is a mathematical technique to verify the truth of information without revealing the information itself.


My Journey


Now let me explain how my Zero Knowledge University journey is started. I like Web3 and blockchain technologies. Therefore, when I saw blockchain related course, my attention is growing. When I visited Patika website, I saw the course about Pre-training for ZKU.ONE in Solidity. I checked the course it was very interesting. Since after finishing the course, if you do the homework you will be rewarded. They will pay you. Of course, this is pre-training for Zero Knowledge University. Payment comes for the course in Zero Knowledge University, not for pre-training course. I attended pre-training course. This course will teach you necessary background for Zero Knowledge University. This course was about the basics of blockchain technology and the basics of Solidity language which is used to create a smart contract.


Patika offers online educations and bootcamps. Partner companies of Patika recruit collectively from their special Patika bootcamps. Join these free bootcamps, graduate successfully, and get started now!

After finishing the background assignment for Zero Knowledge University, I graduated from Pre-training for ZKU.ONE in Solidity Course. Now, I am in Zero Knowledge University. Right now, I submitted my week-3 assignment. I believe I will submit all of the assignments and final project in Zero Knowledge University.

Now, I want to share some information about Zero Knowledge University. Because I like it. But I warn you. The background assignment was easy for me. But assignments in the Zero Knowledge University (rewarded assignments) are not easy.


Zero Knowledge University is funded by the Harmony zkDAOIf you want to enroll the university, next cohort is open here. I don’t know if this will still be open when you read this.

A truly outstanding student can earn up to $3,000 of prizes through the program.

Prizes are paid on the conditions that you have:

  • Completed at least 7 out of the 8 assignments satisfactorily, AND
  • Launched your final project by deadline

Prizes would be distributed in $1USDC on Harmony at the end of program.

Thanks for reading my article! I’d really appreciate any feedback on my writing (criticisms, where I can improve on, etc.) On that note, feel free to comment to ask questions or approach me directly on LinkedIn. Also, you can visit my website.
