The Mina Foundation welcomed Jill Carlson, Principal of Slow Ventures, to its board upon launch of the Mina Foundation in February of 2021. Having supported the Mina ecosystem for over a year and a half with her expertise in governance and in free and open markets, we today announce Jill’s departure. The Mina Foundation thanks Jill for her contributions to the Mina Ecosystem and wishes her well on her next endeavors. The Foundation will be announcing a new board member to fill the vacant seat in the coming weeks.
About Mina Protocol
Mina is the world’s lightest blockchain, powered by participants. Rather than apply brute computing force, Mina uses advanced cryptography and recursive zk-SNARKs to design an entire blockchain that is about 22kb, the size of a couple of tweets. It is the first layer-1 to enable efficient implementation and easy programmability of zero knowledge smart contracts (zkApps). With its unique privacy features and ability to connect to any website, Mina is building a private gateway between the real world and crypto—and the secure, democratic future we all deserve.
