ARPA

A Privacy-Preserving Computation Network

The Dawn of Privacy is Here

ARPA is a secure computation network compatible with blockchains

We propose a blockchain-based secure computation network of Multi-party Computation (MPC). ARPA cryptographically enables Private Smart Contract, unprecedented data-at-use privacy protection, as well as scalable computational sharding.  

Privacy & Security

MPC allows a set of parties to jointly compute a function over their inputs while keeping them private. The correctness of computation is verifiable even under majority malicious condition.

Flexibility & Compatibility

ARPA network is flexible, easy-to-use, and compatible with exisitng blockchains such as Ethereum and EOS. Let’s rethink blockchain for the real world: Privacy-preserving smart contracts at scale and data renting.

Scalability & Efficiency

Lightning fast performance for mass adoption via verifiable computation. Off-chain computation network capable of industrial-level computation and storage.

Our Mission

 

Efficient private smart contract for DApp developers

 

Privacy-preserving individual & enterprise data renting

 

Highly scalable infrastructure via computational sharding

Technical Overview

Secure Multi-party Computation (MPC) allows a set of parties to jointly compute a function over their inputs while keeping them private. The correctness of computation is verifiable even under majority malicious condition using secret sharing and information theoretic Message Authentication Code (MAC).
