Chia is a popular cryptocurrency that relies on proofs of space (PoS) for consensus. Plots are the unit of storage on Chia and form the basis of PoS generation. When a proof is found that meets the challenge requirements, farmers on the network compete to create blocks.

Plot generation and farming involve the use of secret information, which makes plot transfer a non-trivial task in Chia. In this short note, we propose a way to transfer Chia plots in a secure manner with the help of zero-knowledge proofs.
