We are pleased to share more details on these significant developments and the future of the Enigma protocol.

Today, Enigma MPC is pleased to announce two significant events related to the development of the Enigma network, a decentralized protocol to enable secure computation over encrypted data: we have reached a settlement with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), and the first Enigma mainnet was successfully launched on February 13th, 2020.
