Zero-knowledge proofs have been introduced in the 1980s, and most
of the initial interest was of theoretical nature. Since the development
of Bitcoin , however, blockchain technology continues to produce
exciting use-cases for zero-knowledge proofs. Prominent examples in-
clude privacy-coins, such as Zcash  and Monero , where zero-
knowledge proofs serve as a tool to build confidential transactions.
Zcash utilizes the the Groth16 proof system . Groth16 offers small,
constant-sized proofs, but it requires an elaborate setup and its security
is proven only in the generic group model.
