Monero - Privacy in the Blockchain

Authors: Kurt M. Alonso, Jordi Herrera Joancomartí


Monero is a cryptocurrency that aims to provide transaction confidentiality and untraceability to its users. This is achieved through various cryptographic schemes, which allow concealing amounts and parties in transactions. Unfortunately, there has been a severe lack of literature describing with sufficient precision the cryptographic schemes at hand. With this report we aim at bridging this gap, by supplying detailed descriptions of the algorithms used in Monero to warrant privacy to its users. Furthermore, we do so minimizing the use of technicisms, so as to appeal to a broad readership.
