Cryptographer David Chaum, the godfather of cryptocurrencies, said in an interview that it is great that Bitcoinhas raised the profile of his vision to a level that those in power cannot ignore, and that is a game-changer. He believes that blockchain has many opportunities and room for growth.
However, the current state of privacy is his primary concern. When asked about his thoughts on Tornado Cash and Circle moving USDC-using addresses to blacklist-related addresses, he noted that it was very disturbing.
Chaum then claimed that it was a bit beyond his scope, but in reality, he had a solid understanding of the underlying technology.
