Futuristic digital world - Having Safe CEX:  CZ and Brian Armstrong Support Vitalik’s Idea for TransparencyCEOs from two of the biggest crypto firms in the world are giving a nod of approval to Ethereum creator Vitalik Buterin’s idea for how exchanges can maintain transparency for their customers.

  • Buterin suggested a system where users can verify their personal balances through a Merkle Tree, protected with the privacy of a zk-SNARK (zero-knowledge succinct non-interactive argument of knowledge).
    • Merkle Trees help encode blockchain data more efficiently and securely and can assist in quickly verifying information without revealing an entire data set. KZGs are a type of polynomial commitment scheme that allow verifiers to confirm claimed evaluations.
    • Responding to Buterin’s proposal, Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong thanked the Ethereum co-founder and said on-chain accounting will be important for the industry moving forward.
    • Meanwhile, Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao says he is working on Buterin’s new ideas.
