🎙Zcash's Zooko Says Crypto Users Must Have The Choice To Transact Privately

This week on The Defiant podcast we speak to Zooko, the founder of Zcash. He’s a crypto OG who wrote the first-ever blog post about Bitcoin and contributed to its early development before starting the privacy-focused blockchain. Privacy remains one of the hottest issues in crypto after the U.S. Treasury’s recent move to sanction Tornado Cash. And when using the biggest blockchains, Bitcoin and Ethereum, transactions are publicly visible on-chain. Zooko wonders if users really want all their financial information out in the open.
