Zero claims to offer complete confidentiality of payments, while maintaining a decentralized network using a public Blockchain. Zero aims to combine the security of Bitcoin with the anonymity and privacy of Zcash. At the heart of Zero technology is zero-knowledge proof, which allows you to validate transaction data without revealing information about the amount and parties involved. Zero uses specific zero-knowledge tests called zk-SNARKs (zero-knowledge succinct non-interactive knowledge topics). Zero claims to be built on solid science and meticulously vetted by third parties. It is an open source protocol, created by a team of security engineers and based on the battle-tested Bitcoin Core code base.
