With the launch of NuCypher’s WorkLock four week bidding period starting on September 1, now is the time for ETH enthusiasts to get involved. WorkLock is NuCypher’s permissionless process where ETH holders can earn NU tokens for contributing useful work to the network by running a node.
Your ETH will be returned to you, with your earned NuCypher tokens and rewards, based on completed work from running a node for 6 months or less. As NuCypher is distributing approximately 25% of its initial token supply through WorkLock, this is the most advantageous way to join the network we expect to see.
NuCypher is a decentralized Key Management System (KMS) that uses blockchain technology to allow data owners to share sensitive data with a large number of users in a secure manner. Any number of applications, from a centralized healthcare system to a decentralized content marketplace, can use NuCypher as security infrastructure for sharing data. NuCypher is a layer 2 protocol, a Proof-of-Stake based work token built on Ethereum.
Bison Trails has worked with NuCypher since their first federated testnet in November, 2018. We continue to collaborate closely with the NuCypher development team on testing, protocol upgrades, and protocol documentation. We also have a unique perspective on the project and the importance of the team’s work.
Secrets management, access control, and data encryption are core security measures corporations take seriously. Many enterprises store a plethora of sensitive data and must adhere to varying levels of regulatory compliance depending on their industry and location. The costs for data breaches are not insignificant. In 2019, Marriott International booked a $126 million charge tied to a massive data breach. California’s new privacy law, CCPA, could cost companies a total of $55 billion to get in compliance, as determined in an independent economic impact assessment.
“Bison Trails is an invaluable collaborator: they've demonstrated a strong commitment to NuCypher, from running testnet nodes to providing feedback on network dynamics, slashing penalties, and stake pooling for a year. We appreciate their team's on-going contributions and are thrilled to see Bison Trails' support and enthusiasm for a successful WorkLock token distribution.” —MacLane Wilkison, Cofounder & CEO of NuCypher
