Can CipherTrace Really Break Monero's Anonymity?

Can CipherTrace Really Break Monero's Anonymity?

By TheDesertLynx | Digital Cash Network | 22 Oct 2020


CipherTrace came out over the past few months with claims to be able to reliably trace certain Monero transactions. Apart from an interview with key members of the Monero team, not much follow-up on these claims took place. I interviewed several experts from several different privacy-enhanced cryptocurrency projects: Francisco Cabañas of the Monero core team, project steward at Zcoin Reuben Yap, CTO of Beam Alex Romanov, and Electric Coin Company COO David Campbell. This is what they had to say on the subject.
