02 Community, Marketing & Listings

The China National Radio and Television Administration (NRTA) recently released the “China Radio, Television, and Internet Media Blockchain Application Whitepaper.” Initialized by the Science and Technology Division of NRTA, this whitepaper utilizes expertise from administrations, universities, and companies of media, blockchain, web infrastructure, and privacy.

The whitepaper’s objective is to introduce the traceability, authenticity, and security of blockchain in radio, television, and other forms of media. ARPA participated in the whitepaper drafting and review process and contributed to the privacy-preserving technology in this media-oriented blockchain design.

ARPA provides the privacy-preserving functionality design to the media blockchain, which can achieve a cohesive and secure use of personal or business data in the transaction, circulation, and analysis of media content.

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 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 with each other 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 proof-of-concepts and MPC products. In 2019, ARPA was named as the Top 10 most innovative blockchain companies in China by China Enterprise News and China Software Industry Association.
