We’re on a mission to protect individual rights and privacy

At Aztec we believe decentralization is premised on individual rights. Without widely accessible privacy, we compromise our ability to choose how we live our lives and earn our livelihoods.

How do we maintain our privacy guarantee?

Aztec is built from the ground up to be privacy-first. Our UTXO architecture, inspired by Bitcoin, allows for end-to-end encrypted transactions.

And our category-defining zero-knowledge research means privacy is fast and efficient.
