Justin Sun revealed the details of a project called MPC Torch, which is part of the user-centric TRONZ protocol, which is based on zk-SNARKS technology.
According to the TRON Foundation's CEO, to date, 20 people have already joined the project, and now he is inviting representatives of the wide community to participate.
(1/3)#TRON’s MPC Torch Project🔥seeks to utilize zk-SNARKS-based⛓️anonymity to reshape the Internet. As of now, there are 20 people attended the MPC Torch Project.— Justin Sun (@justinsuntron) February 3, 2020
The project was developed by the TRONZ team working to integrate anonymity features into the core network. In January, Justin Sun already mentioned the initiative, reporting back then that the project uses zk-SNARKS anonymity technology to transform the Internet. The main goal is to increase the security of the entire protocol and provide a set of honest and reliable parameters. Honoring the pioneers in the field of privacy, the TRONZ Foundation will give $100 to each participant. The strength of the team is in individuals, and the MPC Torch Project will be transferred free of charge to all of humanity.
Today, he confirmed his previous statement, adding that interested users can familiarize themselves with the details of the project on Github, as well as send applications for participation to the specified mail address.
The project description states that it is a privacy-oriented technology by which users can jointly compute anonymous inputs without revealing them to each other and thereby ensuring maximum data security for developers.
To participate in the initiative, users need to have equipment that meets certain requirements:
- CPU: Intel Core i5 (sixth generation or higher) or equivalent;
- OS: Linux (recommended), macOS, Windows 7+;
- RAM: 8 GB RAM;
- 500 GB of free space on the drive;
Note, that the planned updates for the TRON network with the addition of anonymous transactions based on the technology of proof of zero disclosure zk-SNARK became known last spring. In December, Justin Sun announced that the platform was ready to begin active testing.
Recall, that last year TRON founder announced his desire to support environmental activist Greta Thunberg. For this, he was ready to allocate $1 million. TRON founder stated that he shared the desire of Greta to change the world.
