Join us! In this presentation, Benedikt Bünz will give a brief technical introduction to cryptocurrencies and will touch on a few research problems related to improving the scalability and privacy of cryptocurrencies. Benedikt Bünz is a researcher interested in applied cryptography (the science of secure communication which not only underlies the security of cryptocurrencies but the internet as a whole), especially as it relates to cryptocurrencies. He is a second-year PhD candidate in computer science at Stanford University, where he is advised by Dan Boneh.  His work focuses on enhancing the privacy, usability and security of protocols that are related to blockchains. His research includes work on automatic and privacy-preserving auditing of exchanges, making cryptocurrency transactions confidential but still verifiable, as well as developing publicly verifiable lotteries and improving the security and efficiency of mobile cryptocurrency clients.
