[zeromq-dev] CurveZMQ data encryption

How does data encryption using CurveZMQ work?

I understand that during handshake client and server exchange short-term
keys- are these keys used to encrypt data in communication channel?

Isn’t it ineffective, as it’s asymmetric cryptography (which is slower than
symmetric) used for encryption of, let’s say, big amount of data?
