Hello World 🌏
Welcome to Maze Runner V0.1, an open-source space for Raze Network codes.
When Raze Network decides to become an open-source project, that means anybody is free to use, study, modify and distribute our work for any purpose they may have. The idea of being permission-less already permeates the crypto space, and if it helps to solidify our stands on privacy, we are more than willing to embrace it.
And today we are going open-source from the very beginning.
The open-source world is beautiful and powerful because of what it does to lower the barriers of adoption and collaboration, allowing people to break the spatial and time hurdles to spread and improve projects more efficiently. It also gives users the potential to control their own computing, relative to closed source. For example, a project using open-source software has the option to make custom improvements to the original software, rather than shrugging shoulders and relying exclusively on centralized product decisions.
Raze Network, as a cross-chain privacy middleware, is a native privacy-preserving layer for Polkadot. More specifically, it will provide cross-chain end-to-end payment privacy for the entire DeFi stack. The core technical piece of the Raze network is a second-layer decentralized anonymous payment module, which will serve as a universal plugin-and-play infrastructure for the Polkadot DeFi ecosystem.
To be able to protect people’s privacy, you have to prove your stands, and nothing does it better than making everything open to all.
The following lists the latest developments of Raze Network’s technical work.

Technical Development Progress
- As planned in Milestone 1 of our proposal, we are working on the development of the main deliverable of this milestone, which is a Raze substrate pallet that supports: mint, transfer, redeem, lock and unlock functionalities. More specifically, it will support the verification algorithms of zero-knowledge proofs in these modules. The mint, transfer and redeem module can be found in the repo: https://github.com/Raze-Net/Raze_protocol.
- We are also working on the development of the front end and UI that can interact with Raze protocol. The client will support the Register, CreateMintTx, CreateTransferTx, CreateRedeemTx, CreateLockTx, and CreateUnlockTx algorithms. The client will be able to generate the necessary transactions to trigger the corresponding substrate modules. The transaction will include all the zero-knowledge proofs generated for these modules. We will provide a basic UI to take inputs from the users for the proof generation algorithms. The code for the frontend can be found in this repo: https://github.com/Raze-Net/Raze_frontend.
About Raze Network
Raze Network is a Substrate-based cross-chain privacy protocol for the Polkadot ecosystem. It is built as a native privacy layer that can provide end-to-end anonymity for the entire DeFi stack. The Raze Network applies zkSNARKs to the Zether framework to build a second-layer decentralized anonymous module. It will then be imported as a substrate-based smart contract. The objective of Raze Network is to enable cross-chain privacy-preserving payment and trading systems while protecting the transparency of your assets and behaviors from surveillance.
