“I won’t be surprised if there is a paper at the Financial Cryptography 2023 conference showing that 85% of tornado usage was not private; not because the cryptography is broken, but because it is really hard for mere mortals to use something like tornado (or CoinJoin or other similar technologies) in a way that doesn’t leak information about their wallet”

Trusted Setup

Trusted setup for Groth16 SNARKS is done in 2 steps. The first step is universal for all SNARKs and is called Powers of Tau. The second step is called Phase 2 and is circuit-specific, so it should be done separately for each different SNARK. Our phase 2 is based on 30th contribution to Perpetual Powers of Tau ceremony.
