I’m Alex Xiong, a software engineer 👨💻 specialized in applied cryptography 🔐.
I work on privacy-enhancing technologies and blockchain. What drives me everyday is the hope to gradually narrow the gap between the promise of cryptography and the reality of it. What concerns me the most is the chaotic status quo of data ownership and digital privacy, and their implications on individual autonomy and collective governance.
I enjoy reading and thinking about irrationality in conventional wisdom, thence my predilection for contrarian dispositions.
