Providing Universal Privacy: What is the HOPR Protocol?
Privacy is a topic that can be somewhat confusing within crypto. While Bitcoin can be transacted anonymously, its ledger is public, and privacy is not guaranteed. This system has its benefits, but it’s not the best for storing or transporting sensitive information at the individual or corporate level. Sebastian Bürgel, founder of HOPR, is bolstering one of the core founding pillars of crypto, using blockchain to preserve anonymity. He and his team at HOPR are aiming to implement a blockchain solution that keeps the importance of privacy at the forefront. The use cases in the privacy-blockchain realm are numerous and continue to grow. Bürgel, as a founder and programmer himself, gives viewers a technologist’s insights into a rich and growing field.
