The Incredible Machine
December 20, 2017 by Aviv Zohar

How Alice, Bob, and Charlie used Zero-Knowledge and Blockchains to launch The Global Sudoku Revolution. This post is inspired by two great papers that make zero-knowledge proofs accessible to a wide audience: [1] How to Explain Zero Knowledge Protocols to Your Children (Quisquater et. al.), and [2]Cryptographic and Physical Zero-Knowledge Proof Systems for Solutions of Sudoku Puzzles (Gradwohl et. al.).

Trustless Computing on Private Data
June 08, 2017 by Daniel Benarroch

The exchange of data is intrinsic to business processes, allowing partners to share value, information and assets among many others. Untrusting partners, however, tend to use trusted third parties to manage the data and certify its validity on both ends of the process. In this post we are going to focus on how we can use modern cryptographic techniques to solve this centuries old problem of how to get rid of trusted third parties for business processes.
