Towards a Feature-Complete and Backwards-Compatible Privacy Layer for Ethereum
10-14, 11:00–11:30 (America/Bogota), Talk 2

Eth EOAs and token standards (ERC20/721/1155) are terrible for end-user privacy. Can we build an alternative to them that preserves the existing functionalities while providing meaningful anonymity and privacy? This talk explores the functionality requirements of Eth user accounts, such as asset use authorization, asset & identity provenance, what privacy means in the areas of DeFi, NFTs, and identity, as well as concrete ways to build such an ecosystem.

Wei Dai is a Cryptographer at Bain Capital Crypto. He is not the inventor of b-money, who the unit of Ethereum and the Maker stablecoin is named after. Nevertheless, he aspires to contribute enough to the R&D of blockchains so that he may one day become "the Wei Dai."
