I am most interested in blockchain technology's potential for a peer-to-peer web that gives users ownership of their data and protects their right to information, and enables developers to create more equitable solutions for societal infrastructure.
Jutta is the co-founder and CEO of Parity Technologies, a blockchain technology company best known for Parity Ethereum, the most advanced Ethereum client. Parity Technologies continues to advance core blockchain infrastructure with Polkadot, an ambitious protocol that addresses blockchain governance, interoperability, and scalability issues. To help foster blockchain innovation, Parity Technologies has recently announced Parity Substrate, a blockchain-building technology that makes it easier to experiment with new ideas for sharding, encryption, and governance. Previously, Jutta served as Chief of Security for the Ethereum Foundation and pioneered blockchain use in supply chains as Project Provenance co-founder.
Polkadot is a heterogeneous multi‑chain technology. It consists of many parachains with potentially differing characteristics which can make it easier to achieve anonymity or formal verification. Transactions can be spread out across the chains, allowing many more to be processed in the same period of time. Polkadot ensures that each of these blockchains remains secure and that any dealings between them are faithfully executed. Specialised parachains called bridges can be created to link independent chains.
