Paris-based startup Zama has secured $73 million in funding to advance its cryptography technology, aimed at bolstering data privacy for blockchain and artificial intelligence projects. The Series A funding round was led by crypto venture fund Multicoin Capital and Filecoin creator Protocol Labs, with participation from Solana blockchain’s co-founder Anatoly Yakovenko and Metaplanet.

Zama is working on fully homomorphic encryption, enabling computations to be performed on encrypted data. This technology is expected to enhance data privacy and confidentiality for emerging industries like blockchain and AI, as per Zama’s CEO Rand Hindi.

Hindi stated, “We spent three years getting the technology to a point where it’s extremely easy to use,” adding, “So as a developer, you don’t have to know anything about cryptography to use it. You can use it for any application you want.”

Zama currently employs over 75 individuals
