— Web3 needs asset privacy —

Everything we do in Web3 is exposed to everyone — imagine if everyone in the world could see your credit card purchases and bank statements. Even if your address isn’t publicly known, it’s only a matter of time before all of your assets and transactions are exposed.

Namada will be a blockchain that offers interchain asset privacy, and Namada’s user-friendly interfaces will make privacy-preserving transfers more accessible.

Heliax cofounder Christopher Goes led the Inter-Blockchain Communication protocol, IBC; a key innovation and open standard for secure cross-chain communication. Now that we can connect many blockchains together, Namada is the first step towards a cross-chain and privacy-securing Web3.
