Keeping Secrets: Technologies and Practices for On-Chain Privacy
Which privacy-preserving technologies and tools can be used today? Blockchains are public, immutable ledgers. High-value transactions are sent out in the open, and the data is available for the public as well as data mining operations. That's great for allowing everyone to check the ledger integrity, but not great for any form of confidential data, transactions, and general privacy.
