"As long as they keep their zPIV as optional, we will know that they are not as serious about privacy as we would
like them to be. Their one true competition is Monero. If they do not go private by default by the end of this
year, we can consider PIVX not to be serious about privacy." this is from the dollar Vigalante.
"Privacy is not a topic one can afford ambivalence
in. PIVX as a young coin is a good buy as the increase of its worth is tied to its privacy. PIVX recently
announced that around 20% of its network is private via its zPIV- Zero Knowledge implementation."
The beauty of pivx is that there is no coercion in your approach to your coins and their privacy. All there is is a positive incentive for anonymity which in turn renders all other zpiv mints more private.
Strong words with nothing to back them up. I would actually like to see someone compromise privacy of zpiv once dandellion protocol is implemented. I bet it's going to be extremely difficult. Privacy in pivx is fundamentally different from that of monero. Monero needs everyone to use ring ct mixing in order to function properly. I think zpivx does not.
Hey guys, what am I missing? We've got PIVX here that seems like a great platform and yet every time I see any article that covers privacy coins, I'm never seeing PIVX mentioned in the lineup. It certainly can't be for a lack of promotion, and Bryan does a magnificent job with that. What's it going to take to gain traction? What are the other projects doing that is giving them such an advantage?
You see, I run a Monero node too. It's much larger in storage (10-20x larger) and transactions cost around 10-1000x more and half as fast. There's a lot to compare but needless to say, I run both. This is the cost of privacy.
I happily pay that cost. The things I spend money on are my business. The things like care about and love are private until I say otherwise.
We try not to compare but those are all PoW. PoW has poorly-aligned incentives when multiple currencies are GPU-mineable. Bitcoin is safe from this but there's a problem with an ever increasing power-requirement.Zcash is gives 10% of the PoW block reward to investors, founders and developers. PIVX is sorta like Dash (democratic funding) + Zcash (zero-knowledge proofs) + Blackcoin (PoSv3) + Monero (tail emission + elastic blocks + incoming I2P integration) + killer community (ambassadors, active members, DAO-funded projects) and reliable, innovative developers who have repeatedly unveiled completely new innovations eg. zPoS.PIVX has scalable privacy and high security regardless of how the computational landscape might change as well as a proven commitment to innovation.
Privacy in PIVX comes from zPIV. The wallet generates a zPIV deterministic seed. This is sorta like a private private key. This allows you to access your zPIV balance. zPIV is actually stored in accumulator addresses so no-one can see who owns them unless they have the zPIV seed.
My personal belief is that PIVX currently has the best vision of privacy in the top 100 MCAP coins. People do not currently value privacy enough. We know this as people compulsively give up personal information on social media, don't object to privacy-destroying policies from governments and have a "nothing to hide" attitude to life.I am of the opinion that we need privacy as a fundamental human right and that the vast majority of the top 100 coins do not accomplish this in a sustainable way.
