Arcium Raises $5.5M to Launch First Parallelized Confidential Computing Network

Arcium, the pioneer in parallelized confidential computing networks, has secured $5.5 million in strategic funding, led by Greenfield Capital, with participation from prominent investors like Coinbase, Heartcore Capital, Longhash VC, L2 Iterative Ventures, Staking Facilities, Smape Capital, and Everstake. This funding, totaling $9 million, will propel Arcium’s mission to provide a trustless framework for encrypted computations.

The funding round signifies a significant milestone for Arcium, founded by Yannik Schrade, Julian Deschler, Nicolas Schapeler, and Lukas Steiner, the team behind Elusiv. With a focus on zero-knowledge privacy protocols, Arcium aims to revolutionize data confidentiality across various sectors, including DeFi, DePIN, RWAs, and AI.

Leading the strategic funding round Jendrik Poloczek from Greenfield Capital said:
“Technology carries the values of the people. The team’s commitment to privacy enhancing technologies manifested in pioneering transaction privacy on Solana. Now with Arcium the team is recognizing the bigger picture of confidential compute in the blockchain space. Allowing confidential compute in a decentralized, interoperable and efficient manner unlocks a plethora of exciting new use cases leveraging already existing ecosystems.”

Arcium’s Multi-Party eXecution Environments (MXEs) enable secure computations on encrypted data, leveraging techniques like MPC, homomorphic encryption, and zero-knowledge proofs. This approach ensures data confidentiality while maintaining scalability and efficiency, paving the way for adoption-ready applications.

Congratulating the Arcium team on the milestone, its Angel investor, Anatoly Yakovenko, co-founder, Solana, said, “Confidential computing on-chain will be indispensable if we fast forward 5-10 years. It’s exciting to see Arcium bring performant confidential computing to Solana, catalyzing more adoption-ready applications.”

Keone Hon, another angel investor, co-founder and CEO of Monad says, “Arcium’s approach to confidential computing mirrors some of the core values driving Monad. As confidential compute emerges as a must-have for blockchains, its focus on performance and developer friendliness makes it ideal to empower high-performing and adoption-ready applications on Monad.”

Join Arcium’s Testnets: Incentivized Testing for Developers

Arcium’s rollout includes private and public testnets, inviting developers to participate in incentivized testing. With a focus on community-building, Arcium offers opportunities for engagement, exploration, and ambassadorship.

As Arcium prepares for its mainnet launch, it seeks to redefine trust in the digital age by offering distributed, cryptographically verified security through its Decentralized Physical Infrastructure Network (DePIN).
