Singapore – December 29, 2023 – HTX Ventures, the global investment division of the cryptocurrency exchange HTX, announces its investment in Cumulus Encrypted Storage System (CESS), a blockchain-powered decentralized storage and CDN infrastructure for Web3. This investment is part of HTX Ventures' ongoing commitment to foster cutting-edge technologies that drive the future of decentralized data solutions.

CESS offers an efficient, transparent, and secure value network that empowers data creators and owners in redefining value distribution in data asset circulation. The platform adopts multiple advanced technologies and mechanisms to ensure the integrity, security, traceability, and privacy of data. This includes the Random Rotational Selection mechanism (R²S), which addresses the “Miner’s Dilemma” and ensures a stable and efficient network, and the Proof of Reduplication and Recovery (PoDR²) for data availability and security.

"CESS’s decentralized storage solution is enhancing data protection and accessibility for a broader user base," stated Edward Chen, Managing Partner of HTX Ventures. "Our investment in CESS aligns with our vision to support technologies that not only enhance Web3 infrastructure but also bring about transformative changes in how data is stored and accessed."

Nicholas Zaldastani, Co-Founder and Chairman of CESS, expressed his appreciation for the investors' support. “This funding will enable us to continue our mission of providing global decentralized data services for Web3, supporting large-scale commercial use cases with top-tier security and performance. We're grateful for the trust and support from investors and look forward to delivering innovative solutions that reshape data storage and distribution."

CESS's unique approach to incentivizing participation in its network is particularly noteworthy. Transparent and fair incentive mechanisms enable anyone to become candidate consensus miners, democratizing the network infrastructure. The platform also supports a wide range of use cases, including Metaverse, NFT, DeFi, Streaming media, Social media, Gaming, and RWA (real-world assets), contributing to building a diverse and robust ecosystem.
