Veil Review: The First Privacy-Focused Cryptocurrency

in #blockchain11 months ago (edited)


Project Overview

Veil distinguishes itself from the rest of the cryptocurrencies by being a privacy cryptocurrency by default. While the majority of cryptocurrencies out there still rely on a transparent address which poses a serious privacy risk, Veil has privacy enabled by default. Although this endeavor cannot be said unique because a few cryptocurrencies, especially Monero and Bitcoin Private after the rebase, have also taken to focus more on privacy, Veil is the first to take a truly ambitious step to make privacy its utmost urgency. And in fact, it does a better job in managing privacy compared to Monero and other similar cryptos.

How does Veil distinguish itself from other privacy-oriented cryptocurrencies? The blockchain technology requires that transactions be stored in a public ledger accessible through public address. An extension like zerocoin and the zerocash protocol move the transactions from a public address to a shielded address that is protected by all kinds of privacy technology and obfuscation. This is the base that Bitcoin Private adopts to enhance its privacy. Veil effectively uses a similar base while also adopting privacy technology similar to that used by Monero, which is called RingCT, which also obfuscates the value of funds being transferred through the blockchain. In a nutshell, Veil combines the best privacy technologies of Monero and zerocoin.


With its state-of-the-art privacy technologies, Veil allows you to buy, sell, stake, and mine cryptocurrencies with superior anonymity features.


Veil is backed by a group of team members that are known for their established experience in the cryptocurrency industry. Some of its key members can be listed as follows.
