Opinion: Zcash's Halo may release many applications far beyond cryptocurrency

CoinDesk Advisory Board Chairman Michael J. Casey published an article saying that Halo, a startup behind the zcash startup Electric Coin Company, is a zero-knowledge proof of "untrusted recursion" that provides a clumsy reliance on "trust settings" in the field. A solution that can be scaled up on a large scale. If ECC researcher Sean Bowe's findings stick to scientific scrutiny, then one day it might unleash many powerful real-world digital age applications that go far beyond cryptocurrencies.
