Aztec is a privacy-focused technology and protocol designed to enhance privacy and confidentiality in blockchain transactions. It utilizes zero-knowledge proofs (ZKPs) to enable private transactions and smart contracts on public blockchains, including Ethereum. Aztec's primary goal is to improve privacy and scalability while preserving the security and trustless nature of blockchain technology. By using ZKPs, Aztec allows users to shield the details of their transactions while still verifying their validity. This focus on privacy makes Aztec a significant contributor to the development of privacy-enhancing technologies within the Web3 ecosystem.
