The Universal Protocol Alliance, a coalition of leading blockchain organizations including Bittrex International, Uphold, Brave, Cred, Blockchain at Berkeley, and BitGo, has announced CertiK, a technology pioneer in blockchain security and auditing with over $1.2B in assets secured, has joined the organization. The news was announced at the Universal Protocol Alliance Council meeting in San Francisco and was attended by the leadership of the member organizations, media, and influential members in the world of blockchain.The Universal Protocol (UP) Alliance is a growing coalition of the biggest and most respected organizations in the world of blockchain that have united around a new universal transparent reserve standard that aims to attract the next 100 million users to cryptocurrency. The combined expertise of each member organization has enabled the creation of the Universal Protocol Platform, a technology platform that allows for the minting, custody, and storage of digital ‘proxy’ assets that allow for better digital asset products, and the introduction of a set of safeguards required for the mainstream adoption of cryptocurrency.CertiK, founded by Yale Department Chair of Computer Science Zhong Shao and Columbia University Assistant Professor Ronghui Gu, has developed patented Formal Verification technologies combined with best-in-class security experts to offer smart contract auditing, penetration testing, and threat detection for blockchain. The company is highly regarded by leading researchers and premier investors, and it recently announced a grant from IBM for Professor Gu’s research on the DeepSEA program language to create formally verified smart contracts in Hyperledger Burrow.
The UP platform will enable a new world of tokenized digital assets – ranging from Proxy blockchains such as Bitcoin, to Proxy securities, and Proxy private equity – and will facilitate the instant and seamless conversion of different forms of value. In doing so, the UP Platform will unlock the vast and untapped full potential of blockchain to transform how individuals and businesses store and transfer value, with Proxy Tokens representing the next generation of digital money.The announcement was made at the first UP Alliance Council meeting last night in San Francisco. The event was attended by member organizations, media, and blockchain industry leaders including: Brendan Eich, creator of Javascript and co-Founder of Brave, Michael Arrington, Founder of TechCrunch and Arrington XRP Capital, Howard Wu, Managing Partner of Dekrypt Capital, JP Thieriot, CEO of Uphold, and many more.
