ETH will integrate Zcash privacy features

In an interview with CCN interview, ETH chief developer said that ETH will fully achieve similar Zcash (Zec) privacy features within four months to a year's time. An absolute privacy of ETH can solve the thorny issue of longstanding block chain: how privacy traded in the world, and at the same time be able to share trade information to the specified object. Zcash founder Zooko Wilcox while attending devcon2, delivered a speech entitled " Zcash + ETH = love " speech. He said that in the past four years, the researchers found that a transaction in full privacy mode of operation can also achieve selective information sharing. Zcash is a decentralized and open-source cryptocurrency that offers privacy and particular transparency of transactions. Zcash payments are published on a public blockchain, but the sender, recipient, and amount of a transaction remain hidden. Zcash is based on peer-reviewed cryptographic research and built by a security-specialized engineering team on an open source platform based on Bitcoin Core's battle-tested codebase. Zcash's improvement over Bitcoin is the addition of privacy. Zcash uses advanced cryptographic techniques, namely zero-knowledge proofs, to guarantee the validity of transactions without disclosing additional information about them. To deliver on this anonymity, however, the ZCash protocol requires an initial dose of randomness, a set of parameters that functions as a reference point for the rest of the software. But, the process comes with an unfortunate byproduct. The software that generates the parameters also creates pieces of a cryptographic key, which if combined could be used to generate new coins out of thin air.
