It makes me think if a bug and possibility of Attack is inevitable what tech should one choose? one that allows early detection, easy fix and damage certainty Or one that is hard to detect, fix and difficult to assess extent of damage? Taking this risk we get “opt in privacy feature”, does is sound like a fair risk reward?
I think there is a tech out there or will be soon which can provide same feature with considerably lower risk? @zooko if there is a tech out there which provides better security and same level of opt in privacy, will you consider implementing it into zcash? Zcash is branded as a privacy coin and as Long as it provides the same, I don’t think it will matter what tech is used. Does zcash have loyalty to zero knowledge tech or a secure privacy feature?
Bottom line is that if a breach occurs and privacy is compromised zcash suffers but if a counterfeiting breach occurs it will be worst for zcash or any crypto for that matter and damage might be irreversible.
