- The Tel Aviv-based blockchain chip startup is creating its next-generation chip.
- The brand new chip will likely be a “totally homomorphic encryption” chip.
- The startup desires to start out mass manufacturing within the first quarter of 2023.
Israeli-based startup Chain Response has efficiently raised $70 million to assist the event of its subsequent blockchain chip. The funds will go in direction of increasing the startup’s engineering group engaged on creating the following chip.
The CEO and co-founder of Chain Response Alon Webman famous that the chip will likely be a completely homomorphic encryption chip that can enable customers to work on information whereas the chip is encrypted. He mentioned:
“At this time when you’ve got information (which) is encrypted into the cloud and in an effort to do any information operation or information analytics, do A.I., you need to decrypt the info.”
Webman famous that organizations and main industries that might in any other case use cloud companies are restricted from doing so due to safety issues since as soon as the info is decrypted it turns into susceptible to malicious customers seeking to learn, steal or change it.
Entry to information below encryption
The brand new chip permits customers to entry information below encryption and Chain Response plans to launch the chip by finish of 2024.
Chain Response is already engaged on beginning the mass adoption of its present blockchain chip Electrum within the first quarter of 2023. The Electrum chip is designed to assist quick and environment friendly hashing and may be used for mining cryptocurrencies.
Chain Response shouldn’t be the primary firm to develop a blockchain chip since software program developer Intel in February 2022 partnered with Nvidia Corp to launch a blockchain chip. Nvidia additionally individually produces chips particular for Ethereum mining.
