How much is secrecy worth and how many times can a secret be sold? This paper introduces a novel method to properly quantify the value of secrecy for the first time and finds that it is supported by empirical evidence. Additionally, it introduces another novel method to model and quantify the Privacy Multiplier, that is, the additional value obtained from the use of privacy-preserving techniques when offering secret data to potentially distrustful third-parties. Altogether, both results close open questions regarding the quantification of the economic impact of the practical application of secure computation technologies, particularly on blockchains.
