Technology, Blockchain, and Defi in San Francisco, California
A next-generation blockchain, Findora is focused on state-of-the-art methods for protecting the privacy of users by empowering them to mask their data.
Findora began in 2017 as a university cryptography research project. Now Findora is leveraging the newest breakthroughs in zero-knowledge proofs, Bulletproofs, and multi-party computation to give users transactional privacy with selective disclosure and auditability.
While the company shares a few similarities with Ethereum, a global distributed platform that can execute programmatic operations via smart contracts, Findora has distinguished itself by focusing on privacy protections.
By using Findora, users can hide selected portions of their overall data on the public ledger log entry. Findora’s founders created the company to address identity authentication issues, so the platform was built with an address identity registry that expands potential use cases.
Findora can mask users’ data because of its pioneering cryptography research. The platform relies on Bulletproofs and specialized zero-knowledge cryptography such as PLONK and Supersonic.
If a user sends 1,000,000 tokens on the Bitcoin or Ethereum blockchain, data from that transaction will be publicly viewable. With Findora, users can easily mask data fields. In a Findora confidential transfer, the "amount" can be masked from public view. However, the sender, recipient and specially privileged users — such as government regulators — can unmask hidden data.
