Zcoin’s Reuben Yap on Privacy Coin Tradeoffs, Delistings, and Lelantus Protocol



I had the great pleasure of sitting down for an extended chat with Reuben Yap, project steward of Zcoin, on the nature of privacy in cryptocurrency and the various privacy coins. We discussedthe ongoing tech battle between forms of obfuscation and de-anonymization techniques, including the different ways of correlating bits of leaked information together in order to infer enough to completely reveal transaction details. We went over the complexity of the privacy issue with different elements of a cryptocurrency to be obscured: transaction graph, send amounts, and network information, and misconceptions that all “privacy coins” obscure all three rather than just one, when most simply affect the transaction graph, as well as the false idea that coins which attempt to obscure multiple aspects are inherently better at obscuring the transaction graph than a coin that specifically targets that one aspect.
