Pioneering On-Chain Trust-Minimized Innovations

A few trusted third parties host much of the world’s data, which is growing exponentially. Today, confidentiality is not a property of any widely adopted blockchain technology.
You have the right to control your own data in an end-to-end encrypted manner. In a decade, the notion of permitting unencrypted data storage on centralized servers and public blockchains, as currently practiced, will seem unfathomable.
Fully Homomorphic Encryption (FHE) redefines how we often think of public and private chains in binary terms by enabling on-chain composable confidentiality. In the spirit of Web3, we advocate for the advancement and adoption of novel, fully on-chain decentralized applications.
We invite researchers, builders, and investors who are building a thriving blockchain ecosystem with fully on-chain decentralized applications to this one-day invite-only event that will include research talks and workshops.
