The encryption system Enigma
Enigma is a protocol that encrypts data and works with a blockchain. Enigma online stores data confidential and secure, in a decentralized manner.

The objective of the project is to solve the two biggest issues of the blockchains of the most well-known, such as those of Bitcoin or Ethereum : the confidentiality and scabilité.
The operation of Enigma
Any anonymous user can store and share on the network of confidential information. Encryption and data security are ensured by all the member computers, via the blockchain. These are algorithms which deal with the content and these will never be made available in full to a different user than the owner. Enigma offers a new form of Smart contracts, there is talk of Secret contracts.
