October 12, 2020 Aztec Protocol announces Ethereum Layer 2 solution.

Aztec Protocol, originally an Ethereum-based, transaction privacy-focused project, has announced the development of its own Ethereum Layer 2 scalability solution. Like Aztec’s privacy solution, this scalability solution, Aztec 2.0, will be based on zk-SNARKs. Specifically, it will employ Aztec’s own variant of zk-SNARKs called PLONK. DEvelopers will be able to build atop the platform using Aztec’s new programming language, Noir.
