Exploring zkSNARKs

zkSNARKs, which stands for “zero-knowledge Succinct Non-Interactive Argument of Knowledge,” is a cryptographic protocol that plays a vital role in preserving privacy within blockchain networks. This protocol enables transactions to be verified without revealing sensitive information. In the context of privacy mixers, zkSNARKs break the link between sender and receiver addresses, ensuring transactional privacy through compact proofs of element inclusion. By utilizing zkSNARKs and Merkle trees, privacy mixers create an environment where transactions remain confidential while maintaining verifiability.
