Jonathan Rouach, CEO and co-founder of QEDIT, is very proud to announce that Prof. Shafi Goldwasser has become part of the QEDIT adventure by joining its Scientific Advisory Board. Prof. Shafi Goldwasser is co-creator of Zero-Knowledge Proof cryptography, the basis of QEDIT’s technology, Zero-Knowledge Blockchain. Prof. Shafi Goldwasser was awarded the 2012 Turing Award, and has twice won the Gödel Prize, recognizing her crucial contribution to modern cryptography.


According to Jonathan Rouach “it’s just incredible to welcome Prof. Shafi Goldwasser onto the QEDIT boat! All the team, our partners and investors are very excited to work with her. It’s a great honor for us that Prof. Shafi Goldwasser acknowledges the potential of the technology we have developed – Enterprise Zero-Knowledge Blockchain.”

Zero Knowledge Blockchain

Zero-Knowledge Blockchain, developed by QED-it, is a direct application of Zero-Knowledge Proof cryptography, as it allows businesses to share proof of data within an ecosystem without unveiling any underlying data. Thanks to this technology, companies are free to cooperate without revealing private data.


According to Ruben Arnold, co-founder of QEDIT, “Welcoming Prof. Shafi Goldwasser is another sign that QEDIT  is the leading enterprise blockchain startup on the market. We also have been invited by Thales Group to join their CyberSecurity program in Station F (Paris) and are developing several projects with major companies in the banking, Telecom and airline industries and in the field of Identity Management.”



Founded by a world class team, QEDIT has developed the Zero-Knowledge Blockchain. Combining two advanced technologies, zero-knowledge proof cryptography and enterprise blockchain, Zero-Knowledge Blockchain solves the coordination between actors in the same industry, eliminating the necessity of sharing their confidential data. In practice, Zero-Knowledge Blockchain provides proof for all parties, without disclosing their underlying confidential data.
