Key highlights from June

June's gone by in a jiffy! Team ZKX is pushing hard on all fronts. On the Product and Tech side, we're putting the final touches on Technical Papers that will introduce our protocol's unique features, as well as making preparations for our upcoming smart contract audit by Nethermind.

The BD team will soon release the ZKX Partners Program, and the Marketing Team is lining up a slew of major announcements, online/IRL events and the Community Incentives Program. In addition, we're powering StarkCon, the leading community-driven conference for StarkNet. It's a hot summer indeed ๐Ÿ”ฅ

Starting with a pinch-me moment for everyone in the team!
