Privacy in the Blockchain Era

July 2019 Podcast
Dr. Giulia Fanti (Electrical and Computer Engineering, CMU College of Engineering)

Dr. Giulia Fanti, an assistant professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University, discusses her latest research including privacy problems in the cryptocurrency and blockchain space.

“Privacy is one of those strange areas where you don’t really realize the ill effects of losing it, because it is a lot more subtle than things like losing your credit card information. If you get hacked and someone uses your credit card to buy thousands of dollars in jewelry, you’re going to notice, but if your privacy gets breached, it’s a much more subtle thing.”
