Hi Fantomians, as of today, we are appointing our Bariq Sekandari, as our Director of Business Development and Listings. After joining Fantom in May, Bariq has been a key-player in our exchange listing strategy and community wide success. We're excited to continue working with Bariq in the future, to expand Fantom's ecosystem, and to pursue a position as the main technology provider for government and enterprise use cases. medium.com/fantomfoundation/meet-our-director-of-business-development-and-listings-bariq-sekandari-636ae24f7465 We're also excited to share that Sikoba has published the first version of the isekai technical documentation, which explains how you can use isekai and how it will be developed in the future. isekai is a framework for zero-knowledge proof (ZKP) applications, built with the support of Fantom Foundation. It aims to provide easy-to-use interfaces to several zero-knowledge proofs implementations for programs written by regular software engineers, i.e. those who do not specialise in verifiable computation or ZKP. In a nutshell: using isekai, you can generate a proof that you have executed a computer program (that’s the “verifiable computation” part), without providing all the inputs of that computation (that’s the “zero knowledge“ part). medium.com/sikoba-network/isekai-technical-documentation-released-951eda2ec1c8
Today, we draw ourselves closer to our goal of becoming the infrastructure backbone of the smart cities of the future. By partnering with the Private Office of Sheikh Saeed Bin Ahmed Al Maktoum and SEED Group, we will be establishing an operational presence in Dubai, allowing us to drive adoption of blockchain technology in Dubai under the corporate umbrella of the private office. This partnership is the result of our successful trip to Dubai in April and subsequent discussions by our Sydney-based Fantom Innovation Lab, led by Ashton Hettiarachi and David Freuden, along with Technical Advisor Andre Cronje. We participated in the Austrade Blockchain Trade Mission 2019 and were welcomed to Dubai by the Australian Ambassador to the UAE and hosted by Smart Dubai, Dubai Blockchain Center, and the Dubai Future Foundation.
