Partisia Blockchain Round Up: September 2021

It’s been a busy few weeks at Partisia Blockchain. This month’s highlights include: updating our smart contract language to Rust and Wasm; successfully integrating Scotcoin into alternative search engine Better Internet Search; and seeing President of the Partisia Blockchain’s opinion article published in Nasdaq.

We updated our smart contract language to Rust and WebAssembly (Wasm). The new language is simple and easy to navigate for contract developers. Most importantly, it offers the privacy functionality that is essential for Partisia Blockchain’s aims, by seamlessly enabling multi-party computation (MPC) and other types of zero knowledge computation.

Scotcoin has been successfully integrated into alternative search engine Better Internet Search. The introduction of Scotcoin means users will be rewarded every time they make a purchase on a website they find through Better Internet Search. Leveraging Partisia Blockchain’s bespoke privacy-preserving solutions including MPC, the two projects are challenging the current advertisement model and upholding the highest levels of privacy and security.

In January 2021, Partisia Blockchain and Better Internet Search secured a grant from the EU-funded Next Generation Internet Trust (NGI Trust), to develop the new alternative search engine. Read more here.

“When it comes to fraud detection and prevention, MPC allows the use of confidential data across banks, regulators, and jurisdictions without violating regulations while also ensuring competition remains intact.”

Privacy challenges in the healthcare sector are well known. How can MPC and blockchain help tackle these issues? Health is a key cornerstone of the United Nations SDGs. Partisia Blockchain’s technology is being developed with the goal of solving some of the world’s largest problems in line with the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
