Edge Wallet Integrates Monero’s Ring CT to Support Bulletproofs
With Monero at the forefront of anonymity and privacy in the crypto world, its integration unto Ledger Nano S is not the only positive push for the coin. As previously reported, wallet service, Edge recently added support for Monero (XMR).
With Monero doctored by Ring Confidential Transactions, the wallet service announced that it will now use Monero’sRing CT to support bulletproofs, thus, expanding their range of services.
Bulletproofs are described as cryptographic information designed to advance security and privacy in digital transactions. Bulletproofs assume the role of a mini-compressor in virtual transactions.
As such, privacy is enhanced and transaction sizes are decreased. This, in turn, means that transaction costs are reduced and scalability issues are solved without losing the integrity of the transactions.
With these projects in place for Monero, it is obvious that the coin is aimed towards mass adoption and advancements in the future despite what the crypto market says now.
