Can the RSA accumulator scheme be converted to Elliptic Curve math?

Can the RSA accumulator scheme be converted to Elliptic Curve math? Is it possible to translate the RSA accumulator scheme directly to EC without requiring bilinear pairings? ​ In RSA we have: ​ A_{n+1} = A_n^c st. {c prime|c ∈ [A,B]} ​ W = A_n ​ A_{n+1} == W^c ​ Would this work in EC like this? ​ A_{n+1} = c A_n ​ W = A_n ​ A_{n+1} == c W ​ Where A0 is a generator point on the curve and c is prime. ​ If not, then why?…

Final passage of this legislation would remove a major federal roadblock in front of the developing industry in the state and further nullify federal prohibition in practice. Sen. Bob Hertzberg, (D-Van Nuys), along with a bipartisan coalition of eight cosponsors, filed Senate Bill 51 (SB51) on Dec. 4.  The legislation would create a…
