"Adding anonymity" is not that simpleWhat will LTC actually add? Just stealth addresses? Just confidential transactions?Even with both, its privacy set would be far weaker than that of Monero and shielded ZCash transactions
If you use non-private transactions, you expose all kinds of information to thieves, foreign powers, etc. At some point governments will mandate financial privacy for the protections of its people as well as national security.
Woerth makes it unclear how far such a ban on anonymity-focused cryptos would extend. He makes no differentiation between those that are private by default, such as Monero, and those that feature optional privacy. As highlighted by the Winklevoss twins listing Zcash at Gemini last year, such coins are largely thought to be more palatable for financial regulators.
Small ZCash bag holder here, was curious if anyone noticed that for such a prominent coin, the ZCash community doesn’t seem very active on Telegram/Reddit/etc? I would like to learn more about the project, so I was curious if anyone had an suggestions on best places to start. I’ve heard Zooko on various podcasts & I follow him on Twitter, but I was hoping to find more current sources of info. Thanks in advance.
