Nillion: A Decentralized Computation Layer

Quick Take

  • Nillion aims to build a decentralized storage and computation layer that is both fast and efficient, leveraging the best aspects of traditional multiparty computation along with new cryptographic innovations.
  • The concept of decentralized computation is chain-agnostic, meaning that any existing blockchains can utilize Nillion for computation if they choose to do so.
  • The use of decentralized computation can potentially enable novel use cases, from privacy-enabled KYC to authentication with real-world documents.
  • While Nillion still has a ways to go before it delivers on its promises, its novel technology appears relatively promising.
