powersoftau is an independent implementation of the Powers of Tau MPC ceremony.
It is written in Go, shares no code with the main Rust implementation, and uses the RELIC toolkit for BLS12-381.
You will need a recent version of Go (1.9+ is known to work) and a C compiler.

Usage of taucompute: -challenge string path to the challenge file (default "./challenge") -next string path to the next challenge file, optional -pprof run a profiling server; use ONLY FOR DEBUGGING -response string path to the response file (default "./response")
To facilitate running multiple implementations of Powers of Tau, you can run
taucompute with the
-next flag, which will also write a new challenge file once done with the computation. NOTE: you will have to submit both response files.
