A cryptocurrency blockchain is commonly understood as a public distributed ledger
containing transactions verifiable by third parties, be it the mining community or
the public in general. It would seem that transactions would need to be sent and
stored in clear text format in order to make them publicly verifiable.
As we will show in this thesis, this is an incorrect assumption. It is indeed possible
to use cryptographic artifacts to conceal participants of transactions as well as the
amounts involved. And yet, allow transactions to be verified and consensuated by
the mining community.
Furthermore, we will also show that transaction privacy does not automatically
entail lawlessness nor a total lack of insight. There are mechanisms built into the
cryptocurrency studied here that allow for selective access to transactions by, say,
authorities, without resulting in a conflict with user privacy.
This is Alonso's master thesis, he was a co-author of zero to monero with koe.
