What is Bulletproofs?

Monero has tailored the launch of a new version of its protocol, known as the “Bulletproofs.” Bulletproofs is a concept developed by Bunz et al, which is according to a report is “a new non-interactive zero-knowledge proof protocol with very short proofs and without a trusted setup; the proof size is only logarithmic in the witness size. Bulletproofs are especially well suited for efficient range proofs on committed values.”

How would Bulletproofs be of help?

The report specified that Bulletproofs offer “short zero-knowledge proofs for general arithmetic circuits while only relying on the discrete logarithm assumption and without requiring a trusted setup”. Several applications of Bulletproofs will supposedly benefit “primarily in the area of cryptocurrencies”. “The efficiency of Bulletproofs is particularly well suited for the distributed and trustless nature of blockchains.”

Upcoming audits

Monero has confirmed two more upcoming audits on Twitter, stating: “Lastly, two more audits (by Quarkslab and Benedikt Bünz) are forthcoming and are supposed to be completed soon.”
