Posts about Zerocoin
Yesterday, Matthew Green from Zerocoin project posted this to his tweet:
"We designed a new version of Zerocoin that reduces proof sizes by 98% and allows for direct anonymous payments that hide payment amount."
"We're going to release it as an alt-coin. It will take a few months to get it to that point. Bitcoin can do what it wants."
"We need a few months to clean up the code. We plan to release the client and an alt-chain."
I'm pretty much disappointed that they plan to go this way, but to be honest, I didn't follow their discussion with the bitcoin devs and how that ended. Maybe this announcement fuels a new, more productive discussion.
