Blockchain LatinX Community Gathering at NYC Blockchain Center
September 17, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT
The theme for this month is secure multiparty computation. It might sound a little dry, but multiparty computation or MPC for short is a technology that is being applied to everything from key management in crypto trading to long term smart cities solutions.
Check out this video and this one for a little more background. Coindesk recently covered MPC blockchain startups but with a heavy dose of caution, “To be sure, MPC remains unproven in a practical sense.”
What’s the difference between MPC and other privacy preserving computations like Zero-Knowledge proofs? Coinmonk’s has an interesting walk through of how both technologies can work together but doesn’t quite get into the weeds. If you have time to read a 181 page book on the topic, check out A Pragmatic Introduction to Secure MPC. ZK proofs are mentioned 24 times.
