A Network for Keeping dApps Private
Automata is a decentralized service protocol that provides privacy “middleware” services for decentralized apps (dApps) that helps them to maintain a high level of privacy and at the same time, allow frictionless integration onto platforms like Ethereum and Polkadot.
The project’s co-founder, Deli Gong, said:
“At a time when privacy continues to be held in theoretical regard everywhere, it is also a dismaying fact that practical adoption on the ground continues to be slow, if not negligible. We believe that making a break away from centralized infrastructure is only the beginning, and that offering developers and users an intuitive, seamless experience to make privacy a built-in option is the only way to move forward.”
