  • Aleph Zero offers an opt-in privacy layer to ensure data and asset confidentiality.
  • Aleph Zero leverages zero-knowledge proofs (ZKPs) and secure multi-party computation (sMPC) for the privacy layer.
  • Aleph Zero uses ink! smart contract language focused on practicality and extensibility.

What makes Aleph Zero different from its competitors?

Aleph Zero is a general purpose platform that can be used by anyone. It boasts low transaction times as 0.9s which can be maintained even on a large scale thanks to its own AlephBFT consensus mechanism.
