Reclaim Protocol is a ZK-Browser that makes https traffic verifiable and enables users to generate verifiable credentials from any of their online data. This unlocks unlimited possibilities as no APIs are required or no changes to be made to the websites to extract user private data, while guaranteeing data integrity. Web2 user data which was elusive to Web3 till now will be available across dapps on XDC Network. Dapp developers can leverage Reclaim protocol to build multiple use cases related to Identity, sybil resistance, proof of personhood, etc on top of XDC.
Reclaim empowers users to generate Zero-Knowledge Proofs for any online user profile. To generate a claim, users first need to log into the relevant website. This login process, involving an HTTPS request and its subsequent response, is channeled through an HTTPS Proxy Server known as an 'attestor'. This attestor oversees the encrypted data exchange between the user and the website. Subsequently, users provide keys that disclose non-sensitive parts of the request to the attestor. With this, the attestor can view the request in its entirety, barring confidential details like authentication data, and can confirm its legitimacy.
The website's encrypted response is then processed by a zk-circuit, which identifies a regex match within the encrypted data using a decryption key as a confidential input. The attestor further validates that the zk-circuit's public input was indeed the encrypted data sourced from the website. With these attestations on both the request and the encrypted response, coupled with the zk-proof, any third-party application, whether on-chain or off-chain, can verify the existence of data that exists on the user’s profile.
User credentials in Reclaim Protocol are generated and stored completely on the client side. Using Reclaim, users can generate Proofs(Groth16) in less than 10 secs even on a 2015 Android Device!

XDC’s Trade Network leverages TradeTrust and the Openattestion framework used there can also potentially leverage Reclaim to generate a verifiable attestation.
As part of this proposal, we will implement the following:
- Research XDC, its design, architecture and share implementation specification documents with the XDC team for feedback and comments
- Integrate Reclaim Protocol with XDC
- Create documentation to help builders in the XDC Network on using Reclaim SDK in their dapps
- A blog post and podcast to detail Reclaim protocol and its benefits to XDC ecosystem
- By allowing Dapps in XDC ecosystem to access user data from Web2 platforms, we can significantly expand the range of applications and use cases that can be developed on XDC, especially those focussed around KYC, sybil resistance, proof of personhood, thus driving significant ecosystem growth.
User-Centric Data Access:
- Reclaim’s commitment to self-sovereignty and user consent in data access aligns with the decentralized and user-centric principles of the XDC ecosystem. This ensures that Dapps built on XDC utilizing Reclaim Protocol are adhering to robust data privacy and user consent norms.
Enabling New Use-Cases:
- By facilitating access to off-chain user data, Reclaim Protocol can enable the development of new, innovative use-cases on XDC, such as Skill IDs, P2P onramp/offramp, Gossip marketplaces, or social Dapps that utilize user data from Web2 platforms.
- Daniel Kovach’s digital Notary application can now leverage Reclaim to notarize any digital document. Ubitquity’s RWA project can seamlessly port the asset information from govt. portals and Zecurechain can build verifiable resume with credentials verified by Reclaim.
Enhanced Developer Mindshare:
- By facilitating new and unique use cases that leverage off-chain data, Reclaim protocol will attract a broader developer community to XDC enriching its ecosystem and increasing its competitive edge
- Project Kickoff & technical specs - $5,000
- Reclaim XDC Integration - $30,000

With Reclaim protocol now live on production, we are working towards helping reputed ecosystems such as XDC that are exploring identity solutions build stronger infrastructure and subsequently, fast forward their growth.
Working with experienced and high quality developers to integrate or build novel use cases using Reclaim Protocol. Some of the examples include decentralised P2P exchange, which has already done $135,000 in volumes in just five weeks, Whistleblower, and Cupid Coin
Perfecting Developer Experience - Providing a seamless Reclaim integration experience to external developers and users using Reclaim by streamlining various touchpoints such as developer documentation, SDKs, developer journey, user journey etc.
