Zero offers total payment confidentiality, while still maintaining a decentralized network using a public blockchain. Zero combines Bitcoin’s security with Zcash’s anonymity and privacy. Zero is a network operating by the three fundamental principles of technological freedom: Decentralization, Open Source code and true Peer-to-Peer technology. With Privacy being a fundamental human right. Zero’s trust is based on the subjective valuations of human faith in mathematical algorithms, encryption and numbers. With the three pillars of technological principles Zero’s blockchain is a peer-reviewed system of integrity.
Z & T ADDRESSES
Zero addresses are either private (z-addresses) or transparent (t-addresses). Z-addresses start with a “z,” and t-addresses start with a "t." Z-to-Z transaction appears on the public blockchain, so it is known to have occured and that the fees were paid. But the addresses, transaction amount, and the memo field are all encrypted and not publicly visible. Using encryption on a blockchain is only possible through the use of zero-knowledge proofs.
IT'S YOUR PRIVACY
The owner of an address may choose to disclose z-address and transaction details with trusted third parties — think auditory and compliance needs — through the use of view keys and payment disclosure.Transactions between two transparent addresses (t-addresses) work just like Bitcoin: The sender, receiver and transaction value are publicly visible.
METHODS OF TRANSACTING
While many wallets and exchanges exclusively use t-addresseses today, many are moving to shielded addresses to better protect user privacy.The two Zero address types are interoperable. Funds can be transferred between z-addresses and t-addresses. However, is important that users understand the privacy implications of shielding or de-shielding information through these transactions.
