February 3, 2020 Aztec launches privacy network on Ethereum.

In a blog post on Friday, Aztec CEO Thomas Walton-Pocock announced the protocol will begin facilitating low cost, private transactions on the Ethereum blockchain. The service is currently only available with Dai, though additional Ethereum-based cryptoassets will be added in the coming weeks. Aztec, which uses a zk-SNARKs privacy algorithm to encrypt on-chain data, also offers a software development kit allowing users to mint custom privacy-focused tokens.
