Let's Talk

Delve into the intersection of Web3 and cryptography, with researchers and builders discussing areas like ZK, MPC and FHE.

Zero Knowledge (ZK) proofs are used in many areas in Web3, including scalability solutions (ZK rollups), privacy enabling networks, and building blocks in multiparty protocols. Join us to learn more about the direction real-world ZK research is heading.


Secure Multi Party Computation (MPC) is mostly recognized in Web3 through the lens of threshold signature Schemes (TSS), where cryptographic signatures are generated without the existence of a private key. Join us to hear about the latest innovation in TSS and other uses of MPC in Web3.


Fully Homomorphic Encryption (FHE) promise of enabling computation on encrypted data sparks the imagination and is one of the latest fields in cryptography to garner interest within the Web3 community. Join us to hear from researchers, builders and investors in the FHE space.

Past Event: Encrypt London

In March 2024 we gathered prominent builders and researchers working on some of the most interesting real-world applications of modern cryptography. Stay tuned as we announce Encrypt Brussels 2024 speakers and schedule.
