This newsletter includes: our blog alerting extension developers about Google’s shift to Manifest V3, our recent published audits for Matrix and Althea, updates to our webpage, as well as recent job openings.
Manifest V2 to V3
We want to alert the community that Manifest V2 extensions that are not already available in the Chrome Web Store will have to be reimplemented in the Manifest V3 extension platform in order to be published. In this blog post, we explain some of the key challenges and security considerations projects involved in the switch.
A great deal of work has and is going into designing a website that reflects who we are, and is clear and well crafted.

Zk-SNARKs offer a new paradigm for privacy and can deliver on the original promise of blockchain: decentralization, scale and security.
Our upcoming MoonMath Manual is a guide to zk-SNARKs aimed at those with minimal experience in cryptography and programming. It begins with a theoretical foundation, and builds up to a point where the reader is able to implement complex, real-world zk-building blocks.
As firm believers in the protection of our users’ privacy, we developed PrivateStorage as a private, secure and end-to-end encrypted storage solution that minimizes the collection of data related to its users. PrivateStorage implements privacy and security by design, not by policy. We cannot see your data when it is stored by us.
