Excited to see the first #Ethereum Layer 2 scaling solution with privacy at its core––great work from @AztecNetwork. The creators of PLONK are scaling DeFi, ERC-20s, and CBDCs on Mainnet, with user protection baked in. https://t.co/NdZLaf3S5K
The amounts transferred into the pool won't be hidden. They will just be inside a pool. If you transfer a huge amount or a low liquidity pool it'll be obvious (or very likely) that any subsequent actions are yours (including withdrawal)
Maybe next time some black hat hacks a hundred million dollar dapp he'll park his ill-gotten gains in a pool, and slowly drain it back out over the years as other people also jump on and out of it. Everybody wins!
Wait, no, I think someone still loses in that scenario. But hey, as long as someone has smashed a whole bunch of eggs anyway, might as well have an omelette.
