Zero-Knowledge Succinct Non-Interactive Argument Of Knowledge

So today on reading the post made by ethereum co-founder and also creators which he taking about how exchanges can go about revealing their reserves with less security risk, which was a practice that most exchanges and crypto firms are practicing of recent post FTX collapse the act it done to show their solvency.

zk-SNARK which is an acronym for that said topic according to the explanation gotten from investopedia is;
“Zero-Knowledge Succinct Non-Interactive Argument of Knowledge.” A zk-SNARK is a cryptographic proof that allows one party to prove it possesses certain information without revealing that information.


So from my findings I was able to discover that this technology was dated back in the 90’s which it was being practiced by institutional financial bodies, which they practice the zero knowledge of proof. In a real life scenario the cryptocurrency asset which has put this piece of technology is Zcash, and is really better option for mainstream cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin.

Well after carrying out my research and findings I now totally understand why the ethereum co-founder and developer is suggesting same path for centralized exchanges.
