There are several projects under Vac Research. These are largely independent and can be seen as specific bets.

Secure Messaging

We design modular, p2p protocols for private, anonymous, secure and censorship-resistant communications. The main focus is Waku, the communication layer for Web3.


Research into making private and provable computation using WASM that is verified using zero-knowledge proofs.

RAD - RFCs & Dissemination

RFCs: We build specifications for self-sustainable robust protocols with strong and modular privacy guarantees. Rough consensus and running code.

Dissemination: We write papers and collaborate closely with other projects/institutions, and aim to build a bridge between industry and academia.

Applied ZK & Explorations

We build tools to enable new fundamental building blocks using cutting-edge zero-knowledge proof systems. For example, Zerokit.
