New Tenta Crypto Browser Offers Private And Encrypted Web Surfing Security With ConsenSys Backing
In An Attempt To Lure VCs To Ethereum Ecosystem, ConsenSys funds 2 Crypto Startups
Kavita Gupta, the managing partner of ConsenSys Ventures have funded 2 cryptocurrency startups. Coinhouse which is a crypto wallet and trading platform received $1 Million in grants and Tenta browser were funded an undisclosed amount.
Consensys Ventures, the venture capital arm of Consensys, is the lead investor, alongside XAnge, Digital Currency Group and BTU Protocol Ecosystem Fund, and co-founders of Ledger Eric Larchevèque and Thomas France.
“We will invite more founders from both sides of the community to talk about being an entrepreneur, raising money. We are inviting 10–12 founders who had really good exits from their company, really good Series B raises, to talk about that experience,” said Gupta.
Tenta is a new Android browser with a deep focus on privacy. While most browsers monetize their service through advertising and harvesting user data, Tenta does things differently. Tenta provides OpenVPN within the browser so that users are completely secure. In addition, Tenta never stores user keys on any of its servers for extra security. Think of a VPN and a browser on incognito mode all rolled into one and you start to get an idea of the browsing experience that Tenta provides.
“We are thrilled to secure our first seed round from ConsenSys, a company that shares our values in helping to create a more secure internet that protects data instead of exploiting it. Our mission to make private and secure browsing fast and ubiquitous received a huge boost with ConsenSys support to expand to other platforms while continuing to innovate great new privacy features,” said Jesse Adams, Tenta CEO.

The company will keep participating actively in regulatory discussions with the different financial authorities. France is now set to enact an ambitious regulatory framework for cryptoassets intermediaries in Europe. This puts Coinhouse in a unique position to become the first-fully licensed European crypto asset platform.
