Welcome to PrivX

The First Decentralized Exchange with On-chain Privacy on Aleo

The growing concern for privacy and security in the realm of digital asset management has brought to light the inherent vulnerabilities of centralized exchanges (CEXs). The collapse of the FTX exchange, resulting in the disappearance of billions of dollars, serves as a stark reminder of these risks. Centralized exchanges pose several threats, including:

  • Leakage of sensitive user information

  • Loss of assets due to lack of user control over private keys

  • Non-transparent and off-chain transaction processes

  • Susceptibility to cyber-attacks

In response to these challenges, there is an urgent need to address the limitations of centralized systems. Decentralized exchanges (DEXs) offer a compelling alternative, with significant advantages in privacy, transparency, security, and autonomy:

  • Users maintain and control over their wallets and private keys

  • On-chain transactions with transparent and traceable logic

  • Enhanced security and resilience compared to CEXs

PrivX has selected Aleo as the development platform for our innovative DEX, primarily due to Aleo's exceptional on-chain privacy protection. Aleo's zero-knowledge proof technology allows users to conceal account balances, transaction activities, and other sensitive information while executing transactions, thereby ensuring robust privacy protection.

Despite their advantages, DEXs face certain drawbacks in terms of transaction performance and liquidity compared to centralized solutions. To address these issues, PrivX has developed a unique mechanism that combines the liquidity and user experience of CEXs with the transparency of DEXs. We are proud to introduce the first privacy order book DEX, featuring an unparalleled on-chain privacy protection mechanism on the Aleo platform.
