1. Objective | create a privacy assessment playbook for non-techies.

Timing: 21 days


  • Analyse non-techies assessment (raw data behind 56 privacy projects) from the field interview
  • A model potential framework by applying different filters (time on assessment, complexity, web3 literacy grades)
  • Create a framework for the assessment & test on non-techies (50 people from managers to designers, web3 & non-web3, different cultures, genders, markets)
  • Update framework with interview data
  • Make an easy to understandable & actionable playbook (format: PDF) for non-techies (general overview, assessment framework for non-techies, assessment journey examples - 5 different projects)

2. Objective | create a privacy assessment playbook for techies.

Timing: 30 days


  • Receive 50 builders feedback (from juniors to CTOs) on a techies professional levelling assumption
  • Expand the technical proficiency model & apply it to initial feedback from privacy professionals
  • Prototype framework for privacy assessment for techies (tested model, well-written research methodology, links to the initial research)
  • Upload the model on GitHub in a Docusaurus wiki
  • Setup & launch the Discourse forum (share invites to the privacy professionals for collaboration)
  • Collect & review feedback publicly via the forum (validate model with the broader community)
  • Update both models (for non-techies & techies) + perform 1on1s via ETH Zurich & ETH Dam

3. Objective | Non-techies & techies models website deployment & community building

Timing: 30 days


  • Updating both models into explicit guides (wiki-based)
  • Visualisation of the user flows (examples & case studies)
  • Privacy project assessment card prototyping (for forum discussion, communal feedback, update & publishing as a benchmarks)
  • design + basic branding
  • copywriting
  • DB sync
  • CMS
  • QA
  • GitHub publishing


✵ Privacy Beats

Project Overview

In the digital age, privacy is not just a priority but a fundamental human right. Motivated by this belief, we are pioneering a ranking system that empowers the general public to discern the privacy levels of various Web3 services. Our approach includes the development of an innovative scoring system, incorporating both expert analysis and community input, to offer impartial resources for evaluating projects.

The aim is to assist users in making informed decisions about the services they choose to trust.


Ecosystem/Market fit - Why this is important now

Despite the foundational role that privacy is meant to play in shaping Web3, genuinely impactful initiatives remain scarce. Many projects leverage the concept of privacy as a buzzword or for public relations advantage, rather than addressing tangible issues or enacting substantial changes at the infrastructural and transactional level. That's why a ranking system of all privacy-related projects in the Web3 could help a lot the users to discern.

About Scoring Mechanism:

Professional scoring would be a joint R&D with the key web3 people from protocol architects to security specialists. We are collecting feedbacks from privacy experts from the Ethereum Foundation, Railgun, Waku, NYM... while building on the experience of active members from both solar and lunarpunk communities. This will help to create an unbiased take from scratch & enabling a transparent working process, accessible to everyone via a forum.

In parallel to the top-down scorecard method, we'll develop and implement a bottom-up community scoring platform too (think of Metacritic exters + users scorings) -> at the end of the day it's the users who have to become the real watchdogs of the industry, signaling about flaws and shortcomings of solutions.

We interviewed 100 privacy players & gathered an MVP vision — we are running a series of 1-on-1 feedback loop sessions to make the scoring model community validated.

⍚ Privacy Checker Tool

The "Privacy Checker" is an invaluable and pragmatic tool designed to empower individuals (general public) and organizations by equipping them with insights, information on privacy options and transparency. An effortless way to assess the feasibility of conducting anonymous transactions within the context of the current market conditions.

In an era where online privacy and security have become paramount concerns, the Privacy Checker emerges as a user-friendly resource, enabling users to make informed decisions. It simplifies a complex process, making it accessible to everyone, from the tech-savvy to those new to the world of cryptocurrencies and digital transactions.


The tool doesn't just cater to the needs of the seasoned blockchain enthusiasts but extends its utility to those seeking more privacy-conscious transactions in an increasingly interconnected digital landscape. With "Privacy Checker," users are empowered to navigate the intricate web of privacy measures efficiently, ensuring their data and assets remain secure.

⌬ Privacy Annual Report 2023

Project Overview

Following our Privacy Market Overview (Jan 2023) we intend to produce a comprehensive report to showcase all happenings and achievements of the year. This will consist in structuring the overall picture of the web3-privacy market and exploring hundreds of independent companies - and their connections - with the potential for unity and collaboration.

Ecosystem/Market fit - Why is it important now?

Navigating the complex and delicate realm of privacy is very challenging. Although the focus has recently been put back on this foundamental issue, there is a lack of comprehensive overview and there is still little collaboration in this regard. With regulators centralizing the market and surveillance on the rise, the need for privacy champions is clear, especially with actions against private crypto and platforms like Tornado Cash highlighting the risks. Rather than vying for the top tech and perk, we should work together to create a web that prioritizes our collective privacy.
