Fhenix Raises $15 Million in Series A Funding for Confidentiality-Enabling Layer 2 Blockchain Powered by Fully Homomorphic Encryption

Fhenix, a groundbreaking blockchain project, has just secured $15 million in a series A fundraising round led by Hack VC. This brings their total funding to an impressive $22 million. What sets Fhenix apart is its use of fully homomorphic encryption (FHE), a cutting-edge form of cryptography that allows data to be computed without ever needing to be decrypted.

The company’s open testnet, named Helium, will allow developers to deploy smart contracts on the Fhenix network for the first time. This marks a significant milestone in the project’s mission to bring encrypted computation onchain.

Guy Zyskind, co-founder of Fhenix, expressed his excitement about the launch of the testnet, stating, “My life’s work has been research into secure computation with the goal of bringing confidentiality onchain. After exploring every available technical solution to this problem I came to the conclusion FHE is the best possible solution.”

In addition to their fundraising success, Fhenix has also announced a partnership with EigenLayer to develop FHE Coprocessors. These coprocessors will enable developers on any EVM-compatible chain to integrate encrypted computation into their applications, further advancing the project’s mission of bringing confidentiality to the blockchain space.

CEO Guy Itzhaki highlighted the importance of confidentiality in Ethereum’s journey to mainstream adoption, stating, “After scaling, confidentiality is the next major hurdle Ethereum needs to solve in order to reach mainstream adoption. FHE is the most elegant solution to the problem of encryption because, unlike existing solutions, it allows for end-to-end computation of encrypted data.”

With Fhenix leading the way in integrating FHE into blockchain technology, the future looks bright for secure and confidential transactions on the blockchain.
