So I just stumbled upon this and it looks like there is a debate about if Monero is more private than Zcash. I read through some comments and there are people saying that Zcash's private transactions can still be tracked??
Monero transactions are almost instantaneously constructed, vs. an impractical amount of time required to construct a private Zcash transaction.
Zcash's CEO has stated that their private transactions can be made too traceable. Peter Todd, a BTC developer and cryptographer who participated in the Zcash Trusted Setup, has called it a back door. Gregory Maxwell, another BTC developer and cryptographer, has said that Zcash is not unconditionally sound and that its Trusted Setup is a vulnerability.
What are your thoughts?
