Aleo is building the world's leading developer platform for enabling absolute privacy on blockchains.

Aleo uses blockchain and zero-knowledge cryptography to deliver a new web experience as it should be: one that is both personal and private.

Aleo was founded in 2019 by Howard Wu and Raymond Chu. The company is headquartered in San Francisco, California.


Aleo uses a cutting-edge technology called zero-knowledge cryptography to enable developers to build decentralized applications that offer users personalized Web3 services without sacrificing control of their personal data.


Aleo uses zero-knowledge cryptography to move smart contract execution off-chain to enable a diverse range of decentralized applications that are both entirely private and can scale to thousands of transactions per second.


Aleo is prepared for the launch of its mainnet later in 2022, enabling developers to build privacy-enabled, decentralized applications for both Web 2.0 and Web 3.0 more easily than ever before.


Aleo is bakced by Andreessen Horowitz, Kora Management, SoftBank Vision Fund 2, Tiger Global, Coinbase Ventures, Sea Capital, Samsung Next, Slow Ventures, Galaxy Digital, and others. The company raised $200M in Series B round on Feb 07, 2022. This brings Aleo's total funding to $228M to date. The latest round mints Aleo a unicorn with a valuation of $1.45B post-money.
