Don't trust.
And nothing else.

Hylé is your minimal layer one, focused only on verifying zero-knowledge proofs.

Satoshi, bound by the limitations of the time, put security over efficiency.

Zero-knowledge proofs, once a distant dream, now allow for scalable trustlessness without compromise. But we’re not done with streamlining crypto yet.

Think outside
the block

  • Leverage the power of zero-knowledge proofs for maximum trustlessness and privacy.
  • Run complex logic in your smart contracts thanks to off-chain execution
  • Lower your storage costs with efficient and trustless storage proofs
  • Enjoy better readability with our native on-chain Name System
  • Freely create transactions composing private and public inputs.


Hylé separates execution, settlement and storage to give you maximal flexibility. You can execute your smart contracts off-chain anywhere you like, on a rollup, on-premise or even client-side. You can store your data securely in your backend, IPFS, Arweave or any other long-term solution: Hylé provides the verifiable source of truth for your end user.

With Hylé, you can build permissionless zk-applications and still decide if you make your data public or if you keep it private. On top of that, Hylé verifies all zero-knowledge proofs, so you can choose your proving scheme, your language, your prover, and still get instant finality and enhanced security.

Hylé comes with identity abstraction, making it easy and seamless to manage all account types: EOA, smart wallets, and more. Better yet, our native Name System is much more human-friendly than the usual raw hexadecimal addresses. Hylé addresses can be made of multiple parts, enabling bridgeless cross-chain composability down the line.

Tomorrow begins today

We need to do better.

Zero-knowledge enables the modular future, and only the modular future can do what blockchain was always about: A permissionless future for the next thousand years.

Web3 sucks

We are drowning in terrible UX, or slow finality, or high fees. Bridges are painful. Hacks are commonplace. Onchain storage is unsustainable.
