CyLab Seminar

Cryptography underpins a multitude of critical security- and privacy-enhancing technologies. Recent advances in modern cryptography promise to revolutionize finance, cloud computing and data analytics.  But cryptography  does not affect everyone in the same way. In this talk, I will discuss how cryptography benefits some and not others and how cryptography research supports the powerful but not the disenfranchised. 

Seny Kamara is an Associate Professor of Computer Science at Brown University and Chief Scientist at Aroki Systems. Before joining Brown, he was a researcher at Microsoft Research.  His research is in cryptography and is driven by real-world problems from privacy, security and surveillance. He has worked extensively on the design and cryptanalysis of encrypted search algorithms, which are efficient algorithms to search on end-to-end encrypted data. He maintains interests in various aspects of theory and systems, including applied and theoretical cryptography, data structures and algorithms, databases, networking, game theory and technology policy.

    $1T market cap is ‘next big resistance’ for Bitcoin — Bloomberg analyst

    $1T market cap is ‘next big resistance’ for Bitcoin — Bloomberg analyst

    Bitcoin (BTC) hitting its all-time highs of $20,000 again is not the end, but the start of its explosion to a $1 trillion asset, a senior Bloomberg analyst says.

    In a tweet on Nov. 16, as BTC/USD reclaimed $16,000, Mike McGlone, senior commodity strategist at Bloomberg Intelligence, delivered a fresh bullish forecast for the largest cryptocurrency.

    Bitcoin saw lower levels over the weekend, briefly dipping to $15,800 before conspicuously rising on Monday to see highs of $16,400 at press time.

    “$20,000 #Bitcoin Is Primary Hurdle Toward $1 Trillion Market Cap — The digital version of #gold but with more-limited supply and a history of adding zeros, appears to be in an early price-discovery stage and may simply continue its ascent in 2021,” McGlone wrote.

    “Mainstream adoption is rising.”

    An accompanying chart described a $1 trillion market cap as the “next big resistance” for Bitcoin.

    McGlone is known for his increasingly positive Bitcoin outlooks. As Cointelegraph reported, in September, he argued that Bitcoin should in fact trade at $15,000 based on active addresses, something which soon became reality.

    McGlone is far from the only markets veteran doubling down on the lucrative prospects for Bitcoin in its current bull run.

    On Monday, trader Peter Brandt suggested that, based on previous bull runs from 2013 and 2017, the current price performance was only the start of the cycle.
