In the past, people have relied on trusted third parties to facilitate the transactions that define our lives: how we store medical records, where we get our news, how we share information about ourselves with scientists and advertisers, and how we communicate. Advances in distributed systems and cryptography allow us, in principle, to eschew such parties. Today, we can create a global, irrefutable ledger of transactions, events, and diagnoses, such that “rewriting history” is computationally infeasible. Our goal is to explore the consequences of contracts and promises written in mathematical ink. For example, these ledgers (and related cryptographic primitives) may empower individuals to have more control over their personal data and its use by others, including social networks, industry, the healthcare system, and scientists. Our Initiative is an open, highly connected place for everyone on campus, across the different departments and schools.
CRYPTIC LABS IS AN INNOVATIVE RESEARCH INSTITUTE PRIMARILY FOCUSED ON SOLVING FUNDAMENTAL PROBLEMS IN SECURITY TO ADVANCE THE VIABILITY AND GROWTH OF THE BLOCKCHAIN.
We are building a unique community of illustrious cryptography and security advisors, researchers and innovative blockchain entrepreneurs who work on decentralize and distributed trust.
Cryptic Labs also functions as a unique accelerator focusing exclusively on security, privacy and trust to advance the viability of the blockchain. By combining cryptography and related security researchers with blockchain practitioners and startups, we have the opportunity to perform a great service to the community and the world in general.
To companies in our accelerator we offer collaboration on research, talent acquisition and mentorship. We act as a bridge between university, venture capital and industry in this global exchange of ideas and resources
The vision of Cryptic Labs, more practically the people’s lab, is a distributed research institute where any citizen on earth can propose research topics in blockchain, distributed systems, and cryptography and participate in them. As well, anyone can propose education topics, teach and take classes, ask and answer questions on the platform
CPC, founded by Stanford affiliates in April 2015, is devoted to connecting early stage startups with the top VCs and CVCs in the Silicon Valley, such as Sequoia, Greylock, NEA, Intel Capital, and many others. CPC currently has over 1,700 members. 121 companies in the field of AI, AR/VR, Fintech, Healthcare, Enterprise etc have pitched on our platform, with over $92 million raised to date.
