Panther Features

Panther enables the creation of interoperable, zero knowledge assets (zAssets) collateralized 1:1 by their digital counterparties.

Private Assets

Assets from any blockchain (peerchains) are minted into zAssets using zero knowledge proof technology, and pooled together by privacy miners to provide strong privacy.

Secure Custody

Maintain control of underlying collateral using on-chain Panther Vaults. Collateral is kept safely in a multisig contract, and it is redeemable anytime.

On-Chain Governance

Panther is a fully decentralized protocol governed by token holders. By acquiring Panther tokens, users can vote on proposals using a fair, stake weighted voting system.

Risk Free Setup

Transactions of zAssets are made untraceable without trusted setup. HALO zkSNARK enables recursive proof with a risk-free setup.

Compliance

Have all the benefits of private transactions with none of the regulatory uncertainty. Regulatory compliance is provided by Gatekeepers across jurisdictions.

Privacy Mining

Incentivize privacy and earn Panther tokens by pooling zAssets for liquidity. The more liquidity, the more private and affordable on-chain privacy becomes.

Panther TECHNOLOGY BUILDING BLOCKS

Panther Core Components.

Panther Wallet-A browser-based self-custodial wallet. The Panther Wallet prevents address reuse, enables private connections to Ethereum DeFi using proxy addresses and is used for voting on governance proposals.

Privacy Miners - Provide zAsset liquidity to the Panther protocol and earn Panther tokens in return. Privacy mining ensures the Panther protocol is always liquid and private.

Panther DAO - A community governed decentralized autonomous organization (DAO). Vote on specific Panther Improvement Proposals, set budgets and configure token economics within the Panther ecosystem.

Gatekeepers - Enterprises responsible for verifying user KYC/AML compliance and the exclusive minters and burners of zAssets. Gatekeepers play a key role in the distribution of zAssets and are voted into the network by token holders.

Partnerships

Welcome to the world of private decentralized finance on your favorite blockchain.

Peerchains

Panther Pools and Vaults can extend digital asset transactional privacy onto native smart contract protocols. Any blockchain can make use of Panther privacy and use zAssets; get in touch for peerchain partnerships.

Gatekeepers

Panther is a community governed protocol which relies on exchanges, brokers and financial institution partners to ensure privacy and compliance are equally met while zAsset primary markets remain adequately served.

Strategic Investors

Panther aims to connect multiple peerchains, provide liquidity and growing stability to zAsset markets and build a decentralized and private smart contract blockchain. Help is always welcomed.

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions about Panther

No. Panther is a decentralized zero knowledge protocol built without any trusted setup. Admins do not control the smart contracts and privacy is enforced by strong encryption and privacy defaults.

zAssets are untraceable assets created by issuing 1:1 collateralized, zero knowledge digital tokens on peerchains. zAsset transactions are always routed through Panther Privacy miners.

The Panther Token is a finite supply, privacy-preserving gas token used to pay for fees within the Panther ecosystem and represents a right to participate in Panther governance, voting on Panther Improvement Proposals (PIPs) and Gatekeeper membership.

Gatekeepers are exclusively responsible for minting and burning zAssets which they sell on secondary markets such as FTX or Binance. Once a zAsset is minted by a Gatekeeper, it is made untraceable by using zero-knowledge proof.

The Panther protocol does not keep lists, maps, registers, dates nor any other document on Panther users. The network is unable to ascertain the parties to a transaction.

Panther is currently being developed and will be audited by OpenZeppelin.com prior to launch.

Yes, the Panther Wallet provides users with the option to export their transaction logs.

Yes, Panther enforces best privacy practices in all interactions with zAssets. However, it is important to understand other privacy considerations to maximize privacy.

Privacy miners play two roles in Panther: they contribute liquidity to Panther Pools, and they provision Relayer Services to ensure addresses are anonymously funded to pay for gas.

Yes. Panther is fully open source. Our code can be found here.
