Intel steps up blockchain push with Enigma tie-up
Technology giant Intel has agreed a deal with decentralised application (DApp) platform Enigma as it steps up its involvement in blockchain.
Intel is partnering with Enigma on privacy research, as the latter readies to launch a blockchain test network.
Enigma, which completed a $45m Initial Coin Offering (ICO) in September, hopes to launch the first environment for scalable end-to-end DApps, offering tailored privacy technology to secure data.
The tie-up with Intel is focused on research and development efforts in this vein.
“Enigma is excited to continue collaborating with Intel to advance our protocol and privacy technologies for public blockchains, as well as expanding and strengthening our working relationship,” said the firm in a blog post.
Intel, best known for its semiconductor chips, has been busy expanding its reach into blockchain through various partnerships across multiple industries.
It also has an agreement with digital currency hardware firm Ledger, the maker of the popular offline crypto wallet Nano S.
