We work on cryptography and protocol design heavy projects.
We have three lines of work: Research, Protocols, Products.
Find a replacement for Merkle trees that is proof-friendly so that it can be used for (1) better proof of space, (2) a provable Filecoin state that can be used for computing over data and for exporting Filecoin to other chains.
Find SNARKs where (1) circuits can be easily upgraded, (2) efficient for our provers.
Improving the Filecoin Protocol
Write and review the most impactful, complex and large Filecoin upgrades
See full list ^
Filecoin Storage Protocols Deliver a set of smart contracts that enables automatic deal management on Filecoin, data DAOs, data persistance patterns for blockchain data and others applications.
Maximise Data Utility
Further the utility of data onboarded onto Filecoin and the onboarding process itself by focused changes to protocols used by Filecoin ecosystem.
Ecosystem of Storage Protocols
Build protocols such as Retrievability Insurance, Crowdfunded deals, Repair deals to (1) improve the quality of storage services provided by Filecoin and (2) export Filecoin to other chains
Access Control for Data
Create a decentralized access control network so that data stored on IPFS and Filecoin can have privacy functionalities
