Build with the Aztec Sandbox

The all-new Aztec Sandbox makes writing privacy-first applications a snap.

Run local node infrastructure, utilize comprehensive smart contract and front-end libraries, and test and build with full-stack privacy tooling.

Aztec Node & RPC Server

Run a package of backend services needed to build and publish Aztec rollup blocks, query blockchain state, and execute simulated transactions.

Smart Contracts
Noir &

Write smart contracts using a comprehensive framework that extends Noir with private smart contract functionality.

Testing Tools
Aztec.js & Aztec CLI

Interact seamlessly with a local instance of an Aztec node. Submit transactions, test contracts, and query blockchain state.

Write with

A powerful new smart contract framework for Aztec applications. allows you to write privacy-first smart contracts with sweet syntax, seamless state management, and a sophisticated library of privacy primitives.

Sweet syntax is written in Noir, an open-source Rust-based zk language.

Write code, not circuits.

Seamless state management

Manage private state headache-free. No more reasoning about Merkle Trees. Just read and write to private storage.

Sophisticated privacy primitives

Import cryptographic primitives like ECDSA and SHA without the hassle of re-implementation.
