Ben Fisch, a cryptographer at Stanford University, confirmed attending the World Blockchain Conference in Wuzhen. He was a public chain developer such as Ethereum and Filecoin.

On November 8-9, 2019, the second World Blockchain Conference, Wuzhen, hosted by Babbitt, will officially open. Ben Fisch, Ph.D., a Ph.D. in computer science at Stanford University and a co-founder of Findora, has confirmed his presence and delivered a keynote speech at the sub-forum.

Who is Ben Fisch?

Ben Fisch, the young talent, is not enough to describe him accurately, and the child next door can do it.

At Stanford University, Ben Fisch studied Dan Boneh, director of the Center for Applied Cryptography and Blockchain Research, a globally recognized cryptography leader. Therefore, Ben Fisch's academic direction is computer cryptography, blockchain and other related fields.

Ben Fisch is young, but has breakthrough research in areas such as Bulletproofs, Verifiable Delay Function (VDF), and RSA Accumulators. Let me put it this way, he has participated in the development of the core protocols of Filecoin, Chia Network and Ethereum, and his research has contributed to the above three public chains.

As an example, have you ever questioned that lottery draws are manipulated? That is, how to generate a safe random number makes people believe that there is no cheating.

VDF is a solution for finding fair random numbers. It not only has a key impact on Ethereum 2.0's Proof of Entitlement (Pos) system and Filecoin's Time and Space Proof (PoSt), but even a breakthrough in the application of cryptography and distributed systems. This concept was first proposed by Dan Boneh, and Ben Fisch worked with Dan Boneh to produce a number of research results.

The RSA accumulator is the same as the VDF. The average person does not understand the results of Ben Fisch. To put it simply, the RSA accumulator is a panacea for compressing data as Bitcoin and Ethereum data move forward toward the horrific T-level. With this technology, V God believes that 2.5 GB of Plasma sub-chain data can be compressed to 3.6 MB with a compression ratio of 99.856%.

As an entrepreneur, Ben Fisch is the co-founder and CTO of the Findora public chain. At present, different financial systems are like isolated islands. For example, cross-border transfers require Swift, a tripartite organization to go to China Unicom, which is inefficient and very expensive.

Findora is a global financial network infrastructure based on blockchain. Individuals and enterprises can use financial services with data protection capabilities at low cost and high efficiency. Among them, Ben Fisch's zero-knowledge proof technology is the core competence of Findora.

With strong research capabilities and practical experience in the world's top public chains, Ben Fisch's trip to Wuzhen will bring many surprises. Imagine if you met Ben Fisch in an alley in Wuzhen and asked him about the progress of Filecoin and Ethereum 2.0, what was the experience?

The 2nd World Blockchain Conference·Wuzhen

The 2nd World Blockchain Conference·Wuzhen theme is “Application Unbounded”, with 6 theme forums, and more than 50 well-known guests will be on stage.
