Tel Aviv-based Kirobo, which is developing decentralized technology solutions, has received a $5 million strategic investment from DigiCrypts Blockchain Solutions (DigiMax), a provider of Artificial Intelligence and crypto technology solutions.
According to the press release shared with Finance Magnates, the investment will help Kirobo to launch wealth management and crypto transaction products, which will be integrated into DigiMax’s offerings.
“Today’s announcement represents a firm seal of approval in Kirobo’s service offering from a highly renowned technology solutions provider,” said, Kirobo CEO, Asaf Naim. “The DigiMax investment will help us expedite the launch of new industry-leading solutions designed to help crypto participants, current and prospective, to navigate transactions with a greater sense of confidence and clarity.”
Kirobo is specifically working on bringing centralized features to decentralized transactions. The startup already developed a solution that allows the cancellation of a transaction, if sent to the wrong address. Furthermore, its solutions enable password protection of blockchain transactions.

Founded in 2018, the startup is in talks with multiple cryptocurrency exchanges to integrate its solutions.
“By removing the fear from crypto transactions, Kirobo will boost wider adoption levels as the enabler of risk-free crypto transactions,” Naim added.
“To enable the wider crypto space to achieve mainstream adoption, the substantial risk of human error, and machine coding error inadvertently creating massive losses on transactions must be addressed,” Chris Carl, DigiMax CEO, said.
