Findora builds one decentralized financial network to power global financial democracy. But what is the story behind the company?
Benedikt Bunz is the inventor of Bulletproofs — a next-generation form of Zero-Knowledge Proof technology. After reading how it is proven to be more effective and secure than its predecessor, I invited the Stanford cryptography expert onto my daily tech podcast.
I learn how Benedikt is employing his invention with his new project Findora, which is building distributed ledgers to decentralize the entire financial industry. Findora aims to unlock a new epoch of finance where users control their own data, identity, and financial assets. Using Bulletproofs to guarantee confidentiality, Findora will build an open banking platform, and peer-to-peer lending platform, and a smart asset ecosystem.
Benedikt is also a researcher interested in applied cryptography especially as it relates to cryptocurrencies. His work focuses on enhancing the privacy, usability, and security of protocols that are somehow related to blockchains.
Currently, Benedikt is pursuing his Ph.D. in computer science at Stanford and advised by Dan Boneh. He is also a semi-professional runner and enjoys traveling, especially in inconvenient vehicles.
