Enigma Team does it again and hires another all star programmer
Just recently I posted about Enigma. Enigma is a project which aims to create both data markets and also to allow for distributed computation on encrypted data. In the previous blog post the Enigma Team hired Lena Kleyner from the MIT of Israel, Technion. This time the Enigma Team has chosen to hire a developer with experience in crypto going back to 2013.
Welcome software engineer Isan Rivkin
Isan Rivkin adds to the impressive Enigma Team with impressive knowledge in C++ and Python. We can see some of the work he is known for in this video:
We can see from his Github that his code quality is good and he has the skills to do the coding of the Enigma protocol. The Enigma protocol will require knowledge of Solidity and Isan Rivkin has that knowledge to get the job done.
Why is Enigma so important?
Enigma strategically solves two of the big problems at the same time. Enigma allows for secret contracts which allow for computing private data. Enigma also allows for the selling of computation resources so that it is decentralizing for computation via computation markets. This will allow for entities to sell and buy private data for use with it remaining private while also allowing entities to sell and buy computation resources. This is intriguing considering the negative effects of the world where privacy is becoming limited and data analysis so important.
If you want to learn more about the Enigma protocol, read this whitepaper and this paper. In addition look up the brilliant work of Sandy Pentland who is one of the advisers behind the Enigma project. I've been posting about Enigma a lot, and for those who would like to buy Enigma it can be bought a ENG at Binance and Bittrex.
