According to the news on March 13, the relevant person in charge of Aztec Network, a privacy and expansion solution based on ZK-Rollup, responded in the community: “The decision to shut down Aztec Connect is mainly due to commercial considerations, and no regulatory agency has contacted the team. Aztec The privacy of Connect has caused some problems in the design and increased maintenance costs. The company is focusing on the next-generation version of the protocol, which will support fully programmable smart contracts with privacy by default. Considering the scale of the new project, It required us to dedicate all our engineering resources to get it done. We were still focused on L2 Rollup and never built L1, the strategy never changed we were just moving to the next phase.”
In addition, team members also stated that Aztec will provide zk.money users with all exit transactions for free next week. In previous news, Aztec announced that it will gradually shut down Aztec Connect, and will focus on developing new products based on the Noir language in the future.
