COTI V2 changing private play on blockchain via encrypted circuit




COTI V2 is revolutionizing blockchain technology with private play through encrypted circuits, offering enhanced speed and efficiency. Currently, the Genesis builder network is live, and the company is inviting developers to join their program. The network supports private play upgrades for Ethereum.

As a privacy-focused Ethereum layer 2 solution, COTI V2 employs advanced encryption technology and encrypted circuits, enabling operations on all devices without compromising personal data.

The primary goal of COTI V2, as outlined in its whitepaper, is to address private play issues on blockchains. Developers can protect privacy through encrypted circuits. The COTI V2 Devnet provides a user-friendly, connectible EVM space (gcEVM) using the Solidity programming language.

Additionally, the COTI V2 network offers developers tools for privacy play with TypeScript and Python SDKs, along with EVM RPC, documentation, a faucet, an explorer, and Hardhat.

COTI has received positive feedback from Civic, a provider of Web3 identification toolkits.
