The future of privacy on Bitcoin
- Privacy on Bitcoin is improving.
- Base-layer upgrades like Dandelion, Schnorr, and Taproot have been suggested as a way to improve the network’s privacy.
- Sidechains offer a way to test privacy upgrades like confidential transactions inside a walled garden.
- The Lightning Network has major privacy benefits, and layer-two privacy is improving through protocols like ant routing, atomic multipath payments, and zkChannels.
