Hey, in the last few days Sapling has sparked some controversy in the community as why its not used when integration is done…
I have another question: Actually one community member said sapling is already years out of date.
Whats the new way? →
Groth16 (Sapling) was the zcash approach where you needed to pre-setup per circuit. There is now a much more scalable solution called Plonk and also has the big advantage you can use the same set-up for each new circuit. Groth16 is 2016 tech.
You can see it in use here: https://zk.money/asset/ETH
So why was not plonk considered?
