Applied Blockchain raises £2m to enable companies to reduce data sharing positively

Written by  Apr 23, 2020

Leading distributed solutions specialist Applied Blockchain has raised £2 million in funds lead by Hong Kong based venture capital firm QBN Capital.

The new funds will be invested in developing a platform using privacy enhancing technologies to help companies to collaborate and generate meaningful results together, without having to share any of their data.

Companies face increasing cybersecurity risks and regulatory requirements in regards to their data, and these are further exacerbated as data leaves an organisation and is shared with others. Recent events mean that businesses are going to become even more digital, and this means that companies will have to improve the way they handle private and sensitive data.

Applied Blockchain has already started working with its growing enterprise client base to test the platform in their respective markets, including energy, shipping, aviation, automotive, telecoms and financial services, demonstrating that it substantially improves their data security and data privacy.

Based at Level39 in London, Applied Blockchain has developed over 70 distributed solutions for both start-ups and corporates, and was selected by Shell to build and deploy the first distributed platform for energy derivative trading, which has been live in production since 2018. Shell also lead the seed investment round in 2017.

Adi Ben-Ari, founder and CEO Applied Blockchain, said: “We are very excited to be building a platform to meet the demands of our enterprise clients to do more with their data, while keeping it safe, secure and private. We have now received funding from a strategic venture capital firm, QBN Capital, and we look forward to further developing our privacy preserving technology and working with them to extend our reach into the Asian markets.”
