Cryptophage is a collaborative project between the Ethereum Foundation, Protocol Labs, Supranational, and Sabanci University. It is the result of a joint investigation into an exciting cryptographic construction, verifiable delay functions (VDF). Cryptophage is an open-source implementation of a VDF that easily runs in the AWS F1 FPGA cloud.


VDF FPGA Competition

Building off our previous work on FPGA implementations of VDFs, we’re helping to lead a contest to make them EVEN faster. This contest is sponsored by the Ethereum Foundation and Protocol Labs.
