Aleph Zero (CRYPTO:AZERO) has unveiled a groundbreaking EVM-compatible ZK-privacy layer capable of generating zero-knowledge proofs in under one second on consumer-grade devices.

This new Layer 2 solution, powered by Arbitrum Orbit on Gelato RaaS, aims to enhance on-chain privacy and significantly improve user experience with near-instant transaction finality.

Alongside this, Aleph Zero introduces zkOS, a chain-agnostic privacy system enabling seamless integration of on-chain privacy into Web3 applications.

The developments mark a significant step toward mass adoption of privacy technologies in the blockchain ecosystem.

The testnet is live, with the mainnet release expected in Q3 2024.
