The Nym Privacy Platform

This repository contains the Nym mixnet.

The platform is composed of multiple Rust crates. Top-level executable binary crates include:

  • nym-mixnode - shuffles Sphinx packets together to provide privacy against network-level attackers.
  • nym-client - an executable which you can build into your own applications. Use it for interacting with Nym nodes.
  • nym-socks5-client - a Socks5 proxy you can run on your machine, and use with existing applications
  • nym-gateway - acts sort of like a mailbox for mixnet messages, removing the need for directly delivery to potentially offline or firewalled devices.
  • nym-network-monitor - sends packets through the full system to check that they are working as expected, and stores node uptime histories as the basis of a rewards system ("mixmining" or "proof-of-mixing").
  • nym-explorer - a (projected) block explorer and (existing) mixnet viewer.
  • nym-wallet (currently in development)- a desktop wallet implemented using the Tauri framework.
