Understanding EY Newly Launched Zero-Knowledge Proof Blockchain

News / 19.12.2019

In its strategy to cut transaction costs, EY, a renowned auditing firm, introduced Zero-knowledge Proof (ZKP) blockchain on the 19th of December 2019. The function of ZKP as a digital protocol is to enable data distribution between two participants without the use of a password or other related details in the transaction.

This EY’s ZKP is ethereum-based, and its purpose is to bring more scalability for private transactions on public blockchains by reducing the cost of transactions. The previous gets achieved by the combination of various transfers in a single transaction.

The new iteration of ZKP can batch a maximum of 20 private transfers in a single transaction, reducing the cost to $ 0.05. The new ZKP is available on GitHub and is allegedly 400 times better than the first EY blockchain prototype released in Oct 2018.
