Vitalik talks about MPC again, in this great primer about Garbled Circuits - https://vitalik.ca/general/2020/03/21/garbled.html.
For those who don’t know, MPC has two main flavors:
- Linear secret sharing scheme (this is what my thesis and the original Enigma whitepaper were focused on)
- Garbled circuits
In the beginning of the previous decade, most advances in general-purpose MPC were around LSSS, but in recent years garbled circuits have regained their fame with papers such as this.
A recommended read!
