New York, October 17, 2017 – The Zerocoin Electric Coin Company and J.P. Morgan today announced the integration, and initial […]

The Ethereum Metropolis (Byzantium) upgrade adds a new cryptographic tool (zk-SNARKs) that was pioneered by Zcash. The addition of zk-SNARK […]

Zcash’s next major upgrade, codenamed Sapling, will feature a set of groundbreaking performance improvements for our shielded transactions. In the […]

Last year, I created a project called pay-to-sudoku which was the world’s first implementation of a zero-knowledge contingent payment (ZKCP). […]

<< Part VI In Part VI, we saw an outline of the Pinocchio zk-SNARK. We were missing two things – […]

The Zerocoin Electric Coin Company (ZECC), developers of the Zcash™ digital currency, today announced a partnership with J.P. Morgan, one […]

<< Part V In part V we saw how a statement Alice would like to prove to Bob can be […]

<< Part IV In the three previous parts, we developed a certain machinery for dealing with polynomials. In this part, […]

<< Part III In this part, we build on Part II and III to develop a protocol for verifiable blind […]

Bellman is a Rust-language library for building zk-SNARKs — small, cheap-to-verify zero-knowledge proofs of arbitrary computations. The goal of bellman […]

<< Part II In Part II, we saw how Alice can blindly evaluate the hiding :math:`E(P(s))` of her polynomial :math:`P` […]

The Zerocoin Electric Coin Company’s primary focus is – and always will be – developing and supporting Zcash. However, as […]

<< Part I In this post, we recall the notion of a polynomial, and explain the notion of “blind evaluation” […]

Our team is continually working to improve the security, performance and usability of our privacy-preserving shielded transactions. As we mentioned […]
