Crypto-plumbing with Arwen CEO Sharon Goldberg

Messari's Unqualified Opinions

In 2019, centralized crypto exchanges were hacked to the collective tune of $300M. The ever present threat of exchange hacks has led to the rise of DEXs, which allow for trade without handing over custody to a third party. While DEXs have seen impressive growth, the liquidity available at their centralized counterparts remains orders of magnitude greater. Arwen protocol’s aim is to achieve the holy grail of giving prospective traders access to centralized exchange liquidity without having to give up custody of their assets. In this conversation, Arwen CEO Sharon Goldberg details her path from academia to cryptography to Bitcoin. Sharon gets into the inner workings of crypto exchange, custody, settlement, cross-chain atomic swaps while providing a digestible overview of how it all works. Her and Ryan also lament over the difficulties of fundraising without a token sale.---Special thanks to our sponsorsNexo: Borrow, lend and grow your crypto.Lukka: Crypto taxes made simple.

Base Layer Episode 014 - Sharon Goldberg (Co - Founder, Arwen)

Base Layer

Sharon brings over a decade of expertise in network security and cryptography. She is also an associate professor in the Computer Science Department at Boston University, where her research focuses on securing the protocols that provide many of the global internet’s core functions. In light of the Quadriga scandal this conversation is incredibly important since Arwen's technology would have potentially prevented coin loss. This is sometimes a technical conversation, especially about atomic swaps, but Sharon breaks down complex issues brilliantly.
