Wintermute will help ARPA for liquidity provision on multiple centralized and decentralized exchanges and support ARPA fiat currency pairs such as ARPA/EUR, ARPA/USD, etc. Wintermute can also help facilitate bulk transactions via OTC.

We believe with their expertise, the liquidity of ARPA tokens will further improve, and the adoption of the asset as well as our technology will be seen on a wider scope. Soon enough, ARPA holders will enjoy stronger market efficiency and easier accessibility across both crypto and fiat sides.”

Commenting on the partnership, Wintermute added, “As advocates for continuing innovation in DeFi, Wintermute is excited to be strategically partnering with ARPA to rethink how data is handled and analyzed.

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.
