You're invited to:
Future of Privacy in Blockchains
A conversation with Eran Tromer (Zcash), Cathie Yun (Interstellar), and Zac Williamson (Aztec)
What will privacy look like for future blockchains? Join us for an evening with esteemed cryptography researchers to hear more about their views on the future of privacy in blockchains. We'll explore exciting subjects like trusted-setup, utxo vs account-based blockchains, privacy-preserving tokens, amount-shielding vs. address-hiding, private smart contracts, and total-supply transparency.
Light appetizers and beverages provided.
Hosted By Celo
Eran is a professor at Tel Aviv University's School of Computer Science, and a research scientist at Columbia University's Computer Science Department. Eran co-founded the SCIPR Lab, which constructs cryptographic zero-knowledge SNARK proof systems for ensuring the integrity of computation conducted on untrusted, faulty and malicious platforms. He is also a founding scientist of the Zcash privacy-preserving cryptocurrency.
Cathie is a cryptography researcher at Interstellar where she is developing a zero-knowledge smart contract language that uses bulletproofs. Previously, she did her Master's in computer science at MIT where she worked on Splinter, an MPC encrypted querying protocol.
Zac is the creator and CTO of the AZTEC cryptographic protocol. He has a doctorate in particle physics from Oxford and is a former physicist at CERN and T2K Japan. He is the winner of the global Ethereum dev competition.
What will it take for mass adoption of crypto? Join us for an evening with Naval Ravikant and Sep Kamvar on the First Billion Crypto Users. We'll explore the barriers, potential impact, design considerations and more in this invitation-only fireside chat.
