Justin Sun, Founder and CEO of Tron (TRX), has recently stated that Tron will soon adopt the same privacy features that power the peer-to-peer cryptocurrency Zcash.
During a newly released interview with Bad Crypto Podcast, Sun says privacy will become an important feature that will be included to the Tron network during the next coming year. These upgrades will allow users to decide whether they want to remain anonymous for a given transaction.
“I think privacy is also important for the network. So that’s why I think next year, Q1, we will adopt the zk-SNARKs into our network. So zero-knowledge proof into our network.
This is how we can improve the privacy of the whole network. So in the future, if you want to have private transactions and a private address, we can also make sure nobody — if you use the address — that nobody can see you. The transaction can be untraceable. We provide a different solution, and depending on your preference, you can choose the different one.”
Zero-knowledge proof is a mathematical methods of providing a transaction is valid without having to reveal any important data of that specific transaction.
Sun says that this new feature will becoming official during an update roadmap that will be released before the end of 2018.
With Tron finally including a privacy feature, it will be quite interesting to see how many people decide to dabble in TRX after the release of this feature. Having your data anonymously secured is something most cryptocurrency users always welcome and Tron is taking a step to assure their consumers get the best possible privacy.
