Highlighting Recent Notable Advancements Concerning Zero-knowledge Proofs
  • research
Following the publication of an in-depth research report concerning the field of Zero-Knowledge Proofs (ZKPs), Smith + Crown has been keenly tracking research breakthroughs and major implementation releases related to these proof systems in their application to scaling and privacy issues that have hereto troubled base layer blockchain networks. As previously discussed, ZKPs provide the ability to succinctly...
AZTEC Protocol
  • research
Overview The ‘Anonymous Zero-Knowledge Transactions with Efficient Communications’— or ‘AZTEC’ —protocol enables users to transact confidentially on the Ethereum Network. When transactions are processed on Ethereum, anyone can see the sender’s and recipient’s public Ethereum address and the amount being sent. In AZTEC’s view, Ethereum’s lack of transactional privacy is a barrier to the blockchain’s...
Grin & MimbleWimble
  • research
MimbleWimble Overview Grin builds on the MimbleWimble protocol, and the project’s unique contributions are best appreciated in contrast with MimbleWimble’s base features. MimbleWimble is a blockchain protocol published July 2016 as a text file posted on the #bitcoin-wizards IRC channel by the pseudonymous ‘Tom Elvis Jedusor.’ The paper combined existing research in novel ways, using...
