“Privacy-Preserving Computation White Paper (2021)” Writing Committee

One of the digital economy era characteristics is that data is treated as the key production factor through inter-organizational data circulation across fields, industries, and regions. However, while facing the need for data fusion, how to prevent data leakage, misappropriation and abuse is still a challenging problem faced by institutions when participating in data circulation.

Driven by policies and market demands, privacy-preserving computing technology, industry, and applications have developed rapidly in the past two years. …


The random number has been used for everything from cryptography to lotteries and games. Blockchains also have a close relationship with randomness because they seek fairness from it. The widely deployed Proof-of-Work consensus protocol is built on a cryptographical quest that searches for specific random values. The blossoming dapps, such as on-chain lottery or NFT blind boxes, rely on unbiasedly random inputs to provide a more credible experience. Therefore, ARPA would like to build a secure, robust, and verifiable decentralized random number generator (RNG) to serve essential randomness to the blockchain world.

Trustless Randomness

Author: Felix, ARPA & Bella Protocol CEO

Business is a resource game, and blockchain offers a means to win it, enabling interoperability with privacy-preserving computation.

In the 19th century, the barons of American industries rose to prominence by leveraging their hold on tangible resources like oil and steel. Today, corporate titans seek to attain even greater heights of wealth by gathering consumer data. But now, like then, the benefits of accumulating such resources come paired with a significant business risk: spillage.

Like oil spills, data leaks — regardless of whether they occur accidentally or as a result of hacker interference…


The Intrinsic Value of Crypto Beyond The Financial Cycles

Author: Felix, ARPA & Bella Protocol CEO

“We are not the architects of human society; we are the weavers of the rule-autonomy network.”

Origins: The Trisolarans and the Wallfacers

I still remember the afternoon many years ago when I read Liu Cixin’s Remembrance of Earth’s Past trilogy in one sitting in my tiny flat on 40th Street in NYC. I reread the trilogy many times in the years that followed, and the cosmic sociology, the dark forest theory, the droplet, and the Sophon have left a deep imprint on my thoughts.

The Trisolarans in Liu’s book are aliens with transparent minds, technical abilities far beyond those…
