Recently, the Big Data Industry Conference 2020, hosted by the China Academy of Information and Communications Technology (CAICT) and China Communications Standards Association (CCSA) was held in Beijing. The big data team of CAICT released a new set of standards to guide data circulation.

A series of privacy-preserving computation standards devised by CAICT and developed by Ant Financial Services, WeBank, Tencent Cloud, Baidu, Intel, ARPA and other companies, were formally released at the conference. They included the recently published, “Technical Requirements and Test Methods for Data Circulation Products based on privacy-preserving multi-party computation (revised edition)” and “Technical Requirements and Test Methods for Data Computing Platforms Based on Trusted Execution Environments.

ARPA & Bella co-founder Felix Xu and Yemu Xu, selected as the first batch of 2020 “APEC Voices of the Future” in the AEPC campaign.

APEC Voices of the Future is a youth meeting for exchanges among young students from each economy held concurrently with the APEC Summit, aiming to let young students know more about APEC, expand their horizons, stimulate their enthusiasm for taking on the roles of leaders, and promote in-depth cultural exchanges among countries.

The Voices of the Future program brings together young people with potential for leadership and making a difference in society, and exposes them to the real-life deal-making process of world leaders, inspiring them to do the same with their own ideas.

On Aug 27, ARPA & Bella co-founder Yemu Xu conducted an AMA session with WeBlock community.

At the same time, WeBlock and ARPA have reached a consensus partnership. As a Defi system infrasturcture, WeBlock will work with ARPA to keep building the ARPA Defi Ecosystem.

On Aug 26, ARPA & Bella co-founder Felix Xu went live with DAOSquare, the biggest DAO community in China to talk about Bella Protocol, a DeFi product for everyone.

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.
