Lumino Ceremony Uses A Combination Of Zero-Knowledge Proof And Blockchain To Solve The Limitations Of Privacy And Data Security

Published

on

The loss of Internet data leakage is gradually increasing, and data privacy will be the key development focus of the industry. According to BM Security assessment, the average cost of global data leakage in 2018 was $3.86 million, which was 6.4% higher than that in 2017. In addition to that, the assessment also shows that large-scale data leakage is costly, with millions of records leakage possibly causing $40 million in losses, and 50 million records leakage may cause $350 million in losses. In this context, developing privacy encryption technology has become the focus of industry and market.

Zero-knowledge proof is an advanced privacy protection technology. Zero-knowledge proof is a cryptographic technology proposed by MIT researchers in the 1980s. As the name implies, zero-knowledge proof implies that you are the legal owner of a certain right without leaking relevant information, that is, to give zero information to the outsiders. Therefore, trusted computing uses cryptography such as zero-knowledge proof to complete data calculation while ensuring data privacy. Privacy protection technology based on cryptography provides a trusted environment for data calculation. Whether it is personal information, enterprise business data or unique data resources, there are hidden dangers of data leakage in the process of data exchange, storage and calculation. Cryptographic algorithms represented by zero-knowledge proof provide a solution for data security and privacy.

Zero-Knowledge Proof Provides A New Direction For The

Development Of Blockchain

The development of blockchain can not be distinguished from privacy protection technology, and cryptography is just needed for distribution of books. In a conventional blockchain transaction, when assets are sent from one party to the other, the details of the transaction are visible to each party within the network. On the contrary, in a transaction with zero knowledge proof, others only know that a valid transaction has occurred, but do not know the sender, receiver, asset class and quantity. The identity and amount involved in the transaction can be hidden, and problems such as “jump the gun” can be avoided. Zero-knowledge proof protocol supports the transfer of assets on distributed blockchain network, and has complete privacy.

ZCash is the most prominent zero-knowledge proof in blockchain-based systems, which is also the first cryptocurrency to realize zk-Snarks. Since then, other blockchain systems have also added zero-knowledge proof to verify while protecting user/transaction privacy. Perhaps, the most famous is Ethereum which realized zk-Snarks as part of the Byzantine upgrade.

Lumino Ceremony – The Starting Point Of The Application Of Zero-Knowledge Proof In Blockchain Industry

Zero-knowledge proof can realize flexible data calculation interaction and cross-validation, though it is still difficult to realize. Since it needs repeated examples to prove that the answer is true, which requires highly to hashrate. Currently the efficiency of generating proof is about 7 seconds, which requires a lot of hashrate to improve the computing speed.

At present, the biggest challenge faced by privacy computing lies in how to improve the efficiency of privacy protection and realize large-scale commercial landing. Zero-knowledge proof depends on hardware facilities, and the research and development and production of special computing hardware require huge upfront costs, so this is why the concept of privacy computing has appeared since 2014 but so far there has not been a real project.

In 2021, PlatON, a private computing AI network, announced the official launch of Lumino, a secure multi-party computing ceremony, inviting global community participants to help the development of private computing technology.

Lumino is a large-scale activity that uses secure multi-party computing protocols to generate zero knowledge proof system public reference string (CRS) in a de-trust manner, and it is a prerequisite and an important step for deploying and using privacy-related applications in a decentralized ecosystem.

Lumino means luminous and illuminated in Chinese. In Platon/Alaya’s world, Lumino is a multi-party collaborative computing ceremony that creates the necessary security parameters for one of Platon/Alaya’s cryptographic infrastructures, the Zero-knowledge Proof Protocol.

The emergence of Lumino is a milestone, which means that the formal commercialization and large-scale promotion of zero knowledge are becoming possible.

Justin Sun Prioritizes Security: User Assets Are Sacred and Inviolable

Published

on

–News Direct–

Justin Sun, a member of the HTX Global Advisory Board, participated in a live broadcast titled "Talk to Justin Sun about Crypto Safety Issues'' on September 26. This live interview was conducted simultaneously on HTX's (previously Huobi) Twitter Space and HTX Live. Justin Sun shared his insights on security concerns related to cryptocurrency exchanges and responded to the recent security incident at HTX.

To start, Justin Sun gave a brief recap of the recent cyberattack on HTX. On September 24, 2023, at around 6 PM Singapore time, HTX detected a hack and took immediate actions, which included rapidly changing the hot wallet address, implementing the real-time monitoring mechanism, and establishing the SAFU fund. Through these efforts, the exchange has ensured the protection of user assets and information. HTX, as emphasized by Justin Sun, managed to promptly resolve almost all issues within 24 hours following the attack. Users remained largely unaware of the incident, but it was indeed an intense battle.

According to reports, HTX has fully covered the losses, ensuring that users will not incur any losses due to this incident. The platform is operating normally, and all user assets remain unaffected. Moreover, HTX has labeled the hacker's ETH addresses and proposed a 5% white-hat incentive ($400,000) to encourage the hacker to return the stolen funds. If the hacker returns the funds within 7 days, HTX will offer them a position as a security consultant for the exchange. Otherwise, HTX will provide the information to the authorities for the hacker's prosecution.

Additionally, HTX is collaborating with professional security teams, blockchain institutions, and top-notch exchanges like Binance to trace the hacker's identity and the whereabouts of the stolen funds. While the exchange cannot disclose the specifics of the ongoing investigation, it is committed to ensuring that the hacker faces the full legal consequences they deserve if they do not return the stolen funds.

Justin Sun stated, "We encourage white hat ethical hacking and are confident in our ability to recover the funds. HTX has a proven track record of collaborating with authorities to apprehend hackers and will not tolerate any hacking activities. Even if users not affiliated with HTX have had their assets compromised, we will initiate charitable efforts to assist them in recovering their losses."

Summarizing the discussion, Justin Sun underscored the costliness of the security lesson learned and the commitment to excel in this domain. He emphasized that the recent hack was a valuable experience for him and his team, prompting HTX to reassess and enhance its security.

HTX will take concrete steps to ensure that user assets on the platform remain at the forefront of industry standards. HTX will introduce more security tools and technologies for the timely detection and prevention of potential threats in the future. Collaboration with leading security audit firms for regular audits and swift issue resolution is another facet of their strategy. Lastly, additional security updates, including updates to custodians or institutions, will be implemented.

Considering the multiple security incidents that have occurred in the cryptocurrency industry, Sun remarked, "Past experiences have taught us that security is an ongoing race, where we must continually adopt measures to ensure the security of user assets and fortify our security defense."

Addressing community doubts regarding the incident being a marketing stunt orchestrated by HTX, Justin Sun categorically dismissed such claims. He affirmed that while HTX has previously hosted attention-grabbing marketing events, the platform's unwavering commitment to security and the sanctity of user assets means they will never exploit a security incident as a marketing ploy.

Sun continued to reiterate the importance of security throughout the live stream, emphasizing, "Security is an eternal concern, and we will always prioritize the safety of user assets."

Radix Babylon Upgrade Marks New Era for Web3 User and Developer Experience

Published

on

–News Direct–

Decentralized ledger platform Radix Publishing has celebrated the successful completion of its long-anticipated Babylon mainnet upgrade. The Babylon upgrade represents the end of the Olympia era and has been hailed by Radix as a game-changing moment for Web3 and the wider DeFi space.

The Babylon mainnet upgrade has been described as a substantial update to the Radix Network mainnet, enabling the deployment of Scrypto-based smart contracts and a wide swathe of new technologies and features, most notably, the Radix Mobile Wallet.

With the Radix Babylon Upgrade complete, the Full Stack for DeFi has come together for the first time, ushering in a new beginning for both existing users, as well as those who were hesitant to embrace DeFi and Web3. A new ecosystem awaits – an ecosystem where builders can intuitively build and launch powerful and secure dApps, and where our friends, family, and colleagues can confidently use them said Piers Ridyard, CEO, RDX Works.

Among the refinements supported by Babylon are the Radix Engine v2 virtual machine, DeFi transaction previews that are human readable, a decentralized royalty system for developers and smart account components, as well as an on-ledger catalog of Scrypto-based blueprints.

The Babylon upgrade brings with it five new products, The Radix Mobile Wallet, which provides a secure way to manage accounts and hold any kind of asset, such as tokens or NFTs on Radix. Radix Connect, which allows users to connect their Radix Wallet to dApps on desktop browsers using a secure peer-to-peer connection with the Radix browser extension. The Radix Dashboard, a comprehensive explorer for the Radix Network and functionalities to stake, unstake, and claim XRD from validators and the Developer Console, which provides functionalities that will be useful for developers to deploy packages to the network, ensuring a streamlined integration of new software components. And lastly, the dApp Sandbox, a developer tool that makes it easy for a developer to experiment with the kinds of requests that a dApp frontend can make to the Radix Wallet, and see the results in the wallet and format of responses.

It is believed the arrival of the Babylon mainnet upgrade will enhance user experience for web3 developers, many of whom have already become acquainted with the incoming features through their use of the Betanet and RCnet testnets. Babylon represents an open, self-incentivizing DeFi dApp ecosystem where developers can build and deploy impactful decentralized applications at scale.

About Radix

Radix is the only full-stack, layer-1 smart contract platform that offers a radically better experience both for users and developers. With Radix, users can confidently use Web3 and DeFi to manage their assets and identities; and for developers, Scrypto and Radix Engine provide a powerful and secure asset-oriented programming paradigm that allows builders to intuitively go from idea to production-ready dApps that their users will love.
