What’s new? The developers of the “dog” meme token Shiba Inu (SHIB) have increased the privacy and data protection of ecosystem users and developers by implementing fully homomorphic encryption (FHE). The initiative is in collaboration with Zama, a company specializing in blockchain and artificial intelligence encryption technologies.


What else is known? The innovative FHE technology allows data to be processed in encrypted form, which increases its security. With more traditional methods, encrypted data needs to be decrypted, processed, and then encrypted again, exposing information in the process that could be vulnerable to leaks.

FHE makes data inaccessible not only to the service provider, hackers, or government agencies but also ensures that computations can be performed publicly without compromising user privacy as the data remains encrypted throughout the process.

Previously, Zama, as one of the leading companies in FHE solutions, was one of the top ten finalists in the RSA Conference 2023 Innovation Sandbox contest.

With access to Zama’s open-source tools, developers in the Shib ecosystem will be able to build privacy-centric applications.

Initially, the technology will be used in transactions with the TREAT token, which is used to provide liquidity to the SHI stablecoin. In the future, TREAT will replace BONE as the token for paying rewards on the ShibaSwap exchange.
