Private, composable accounts on Ethereum
Nocturne is a protocol enabling private accounts on Ethereum. Imagine a conventional Ethereum account but with built-in asset privacy. Nocturne allows users to deposit or receive funds to private, stealth addresses within the Nocturne contracts. Then, in the future, a user can prove ownership of assets in zero knowledge for use in arbitrary transactions or confidential transfers.

Nocturne will initially be available via the private vault UI upon mainnet launch. This interface will allow users to privately store/earn yield on idle assets and withdraw to clean burner wallets for higher-touch activities like trading. This is intended to be the home for users’ hot assets which they know they will be transacting with but will want a fresh wallet to do so with each time.
