Work with Ameen Soleimani, Fabian Schär, Matthias Nadler and Jacob Illum on privacy and proof-of-innocence: https://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=4563364
If anyone else feels overwhelmed to read this, I read it, and it makes sense to me, and I’m not super technical. It’s well-written/ succinct.
This is great, privacy is so important even the initial reason that I join crypto full time couple years ago. But seems not much ppl care about it.
What are the most promising / interesting projects that you see with respect to privacy and payments @vitalik.eth ?
I didn't read it. But proof of innocence sounds like I am losing a Right. The one that says than I am innocent until the opposite has been proven true. Losing Rights is the opposite of progress.
This comes at a good time, because I am working on ideas to respond to the proposed US Treasury regulations for broker reporting that would link name, address and taxpayer ID to wallet address and transaction hashes.

This is great - those developing privacy solutions should think deeply about designs that allow users to remain compliant. Curious if you saw this post we put out last year relating to the same subject. https://a16zcrypto.com/posts/article/privacy-protecting-regulatory-solutions-using-zero-knowledge-proofs-full-paper/
does this give too much credit to assuming KYC/AML laws aren't evil? this works if we believe KYC/AML protects us from baddies and governments wouldn't abuse them to go after honest actors that only desire freedom but if KYC/AML isn't the real worry and they just don't like crypto, we may be letting our guard down
