In order to further support the rapid growth of the Chainlink ecosystem, we’ve recently released the Chainlink Community Grant Program as a means of providing important financial resources to the many development teams and researchers building Chainlink, as well as the many additional developer resources that enable easy access to the network. Our goal with the grant program is to deploy substantial financial resources towards the creation of critical developer tooling, the addition of more high-quality data, and the launching of key services around the Chainlink Network, with key academic research to support those developments. We encourage all the talented individual developers and development teams in our community to apply to the grant program here. If you are a researcher and you want to collaborate, contact us here.
We are excited to announce that Professor Xiao Wang, a leading computer security, privacy, and cryptography researcher, has been selected as a research grant recipient from the Chainlink Community Grant Program. As part of the research grant, Xiao will be collaborating with Chainlink Labs and our research team to work on the future development of DECO’s privacy preserving oracle technology, further expanding the Chainlink Network’s ability to greatly increase the amount of private & premium data available for use by all Web 2.0 and Web 3.0 applications.
Xiao’s research interests focus on applied cryptography, specifically on designing efficient privacy-preserving systems based on secure multi-party computation. He is receiving a Chainlink grant to collaborate on accelerating DECO’s application to the Chainlink Network in ways that provide additional privacy guarantees to both users and data sources.
Xiao Wang is an assistant professor of computer science at Northwestern University. He’s currently conducting a joint post-doctoral fellowship with Vinod Vaikuntanathan at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Ran Canetti at Boston University. He obtained ...
