Just Sun said that Tron plans to implement zk-SNARKS sometime in the first quarter of 2019.
He explained that privacy and anonymity are much-needed features in today’s society as websites and search engines are monetizing user data and this affects the users’ privacy in more ways.
“People don’t want their privacy stored by Facebook or Google because those people can more easily manipulate the data so they can push ads to you. You don’t want to share those data with them. That’s why I think the decentralized way becomes a good way to do that ànd limit how much data you are required to share.”
