A Random Walk Along Blockchain Avenue | Section 3

On May 16th, ARPA posted the Section 3: Crypto Natives & Enlightening Outsiders of its series of knowledge-sharing articles: A Random Walk Along Blockchain Avenue. Looking back, the year of 2018 and the first half of 2019 were rather bearish for the crypto market. End-2017 and early-2018 saw the Bitcoin price surged from about $7,000 to over $19,000 within a month and swiftly plunged back to a little of $7,000 within almost the same time, if not shorter. ICO mania in 2017 inarguably contributed to the dramatic up and down. However, while the secondary market got hit, innovations in the blockchain universe didn’t tumble. In contrast, several seeds that in near future grow into towering trees were sowed in 2018 and 2019. In this section, let us walk you through the milestones of a little bit bumpy but wide road paved in 2018. Enjoy!

About ARPA

ARPA is a blockchain-based solution for privacy-preserving computation, enabled by Multi-Party Computation (“MPC”). Founded in April 2018, the goal of ARPA is to separate data utility from ownership and enable data renting. ARPA’s MPC protocol creates ways for multiple entities to collaboratively analyze data and extract data synergies while keeping each party’s data input private and secure. ARPA allows secret sharing of private data, and the correctness of computation is verifiable using the information-theoretic Message Authentication Code (MAC).

Developers can build privacy-preserving dApps on blockchains compatible with ARPA. Some immediate use cases include: credit anti-fraud, secure data wallet, precision marketing, joint AI model training, key management systems, etc. For example, banks using the ARPA network can share their credit blacklist for risk management purposes without exposing their customer data or privacy.

Team members have worked at leading institutions such as Google, Amazon, Huawei, Fosun, Tsinghua University, Fidelity Investments. ARPA is currently assisting the China Academy of Information and Communications Technology in setting the national standard for secure multi-party computation. ARPA is a corporate member of MPC Alliance and IEEE and is in partnership with fortune 500 companies to implement proofs-of-concept and MPC products. In 2019, ARPA was named the Top 10 most innovative blockchain companies in China by China Enterprise News and China Software Industry Association.
