What does Nocturne Labs really want?
Nocturne Labs is an American startup aiming to develop a protocol favorable to anonymous transactions on Ethereum. Through this initiative, Luke Tchang’s team will allow access to “internal” accounts backed by Nocturne.
Here is an exhaustive list of benefits granted by Nocturne:
- receipt/deposit of crypto funds into an anonymous Nocturne account;
- zero-knowledge (ZK) proof of the existence of funds;
- use of crypto assets to pay, trade, stake, etc.
In other words, Nocturne will put the confidentiality regarding the holding of cryptocurrencies. Users attracted by its services will no longer have to worry about possible disclosure of data concerning their cryptographic assets, whether they receive their pay, make purchases or store bitcoins (BTC) or ethers (ETH) on the blockchain .
We now understand why Vitalik Buterin supports this Nocturne Labs initiative. He who created panic situations by his unjustified transfers of ETH could conceal his transfer activities between now and November, the period of deployment of the Nocturne protocol on the mainnet.
