To help community partners and technology enthusiasts better understand the Lumino ceremony, We have prepared a Q&A session on the 60-day secure multi-party computing ceremony.

A) ABOUT LUMINO

Q1. What is Lumino?

PlatON/Alaya will build a decentralized privacy-preserving infrastructure based on Zero-Knowledge Proof (ZKP). However, in most of the existing high-efficiency ZKP algorithms, system parameters need to be created in a centralized manner, and the centralized third party that creates the parameters can forge the certificate, which will destroy the security of the underlying level of PlatON/Alaya.


We welcome all the crypto enthusiasts to join Lumino. From June 21 to August 20, a 60-day Multi-Party Computation will be scheduled to produce secure parameters for PlatON, Alaya, and other zero-knowledge proofs based decentralized infrastructures. Lumino is a sequential computation by involving as many people as possible to contribute their randomnesses in turn. The result is mathematically guaranteed if at least one person behaves honestly.


PlatON, initiated and driven by the LatticeX Foundation, is a next-generation Internet infrastructure protocol based on the fundamental properties of blockchain and supported by the privacy-preserving computation network. “Computing interoperability” is its core feature. By building a computing system assembled by Verifiable Computation, Secure Multi-Party Computation, Zero-Knowledge Proof, Homomorphic Encryption and other cryptographic algorithms and blockchain technology, PlatON provides a public infrastructure in open source architecture for global artificial intelligence, distributed application developers, data providers and various organizations, communities and individuals with computing needs.

👉PlatON Studio IDE, the PlatON eco-developer tool is officially launched


Back in 2017, Ethereum opinion leader Vitalik introduced the concept of Stateless clients at The Ethereum developer conference(Devcon), with the intention of solving the problem of growing on-chain data faced by public chains by reducing on-chain state storage. The concept was conceived as an ideal solution for blockchains to get rid of state bloat, and over the past few years, through the continuous in-depth research of Alexey Akhunov and Igor Mandrigin and others, the Stateless concept has become more fruitful. …


PlatON is a new generation of privacy-preserving AI network initiated and driven by the LatticeX Foundation and is also an open-source community project. Such a huge infrastructure requires a joint effort from community developers.

Bounty #1 Review code and submit issues found in the code

Description:

Review the source code of PlatON and Alaya, and submit the issues in code to the project issue tracker.

Requirements:

Only clear, accurate descriptions…


Recently, Singapore LatticeX Foundation, the promoter of privacy-preserving AI network PlatON and financial public chain Alaya, announced its strategic partnership with xNFT Protocol in the area of tech collaboration, crypto art, and ecosystem development.

PlatON, a global leader in the field of privacy-preserving computation, is happy to announce the release of Lumino, a two-month computation ceremony, promoting collaborative efforts in developing the privacy-preserving computation technology.


PlatON Meta-Network Alaya has always had the vision to serve financial inclusion globally and provide financial infrastructure around this ultimate goal accordingly. As the “first demonstration zone” for the next generation of privacy computing architecture and data asset computing infrastructure worldwide, several Grants eco-partner projects are already connected or will soon be connected to the Alaya network, which is gradually moving from the underlying network validation to the distributed financial business validation stage in small steps.


PlatON’s Giskard consensus protocol consists of PPoS (PlatON proof of stake), a probabilistic proof-of-stake consensus, and Giskard BFT (Giskard Byzantine Fault Tolerance). The PPoS selects the validators to participate in consensuses by staking, delegation, and random selection, while the Giskard BFT uses a BFT-like algorithm to implement block production and verification.

In this feature, we will delve into two technical issues with two articles. The first article will briefly introduce the PPoS consensus and BFT theory, and analyze the characteristics of the PBFT algorithm. …
