A privacy-focused collaboration tool


coeo (ko-e-o) is a decentralized collaboration platform with a long-term vision of enabling organizations that have all dimensions of privacy. coeo includes a network-wide discussion forum and social network that will allow users to discover people and organizations aligned with their interests, in addition to dedicated organization-specific work areas. We have decided to initially focus on the following areas: 1) A decentralized communication system and social network, with user profiles, discussion forums, and private messages 2) Organization work areas with a voting system 3) Protecting a user's privacy in relation to how they decided to vote on a proposal 4) Make a really nice UX and styled app with quick onboarding We wanted to build the following, but didn't get around to it yet: * Finalize gas station network integration (currently a WIP) * Threaded discussions within organizations and votes * Markdown support, upvote/downvote threads/comments, activity feeds * Enable organization signaling votes using existing erc-20s, leveraging vulcanize or the graph for balances

How it's made

Currently, coeo leverages: * 3box for decentralized profiles, threaded conversations and private messages. * Within an organization work area, Semaphore ( is used for zk-based anonymous voting * We have initially experimented with a client-side Ethereum wallet using Hedgehog ( which allows users to authenticate with a username/password In the future, we are considering the following enhancements and integrations: * utilize zkopru for private transactions using zk-snark and optimistic rollup * sourcecred integration to incentivize participation by awarding organization tokens * organization document storage that leverages filecoin * deploying the frontend to IPFS so it can be run fully decentralized
