Torus completes funding round with $2 million investments

Posted 10 July, 2019

The Torus project has announced successful seed funding round with $2 million investments. The round was led by Multicoin Capital.

The company wrote in the press release:

"Today, we’re excited to announce that we’ve raised $2 million from some of the most strategic investors in crypto."

Along with Multicoin Capital, the project was backed by Coinbase Ventures, Sixth Horizon, Accomplice and Binance Labs. 

The Torus project is developing solutions for private key management striving to make Dapp onboarding fast and simple.

"Operating on the principles of simplicity, seamlessness and security, we’ve built a distributed key management system to provide users of all skills and backgrounds with a user-friendly authentication method..," said the company.

As the company representative stated, many users store funds at 3rd party services, but there is a risk of hacks which can entail heavy losses.

The project team intends to develop the tool for keys management in which crucial data is split among numerous servers via sharding. This method is believed to boost protection against hackers, as they will face serious difficulties while trying to recover the key from numerous segmental parts.

Torus launched beta testnet for Ethereum users in early 2018, and now developers are working on the solutions for other large blockchain platforms.
