The company Chainalysis said that they can make traceable some cryptocurrencies that are famous for be focused into user privacy throught no traceable transactions, obviously we are talking about Monero, Zcash and Dash too.

For example Chainalysis said that Dash privacy was broken due characteristics from wallets that don't use privacy-enhancing features.

But It's so similar with Zcash, in this case Chainalysis said that only are no traceable a 0.9% of transactions, so 99.1% is traceable for them.

Monero would be the best privacy coin which only 30% transactions were traceable.

The university Carnegie Mellon concluded the same two weeks ago.

In addition there are some exchanges that are delisting Monero, Dash even Zcash from their services becouse the majority of governments are not favorable to privacy coins.

But maybe the focused privacy coins is the point, Bitcoin was invented to prevent people from government abusing us and violent forced monopolistic money of central banks.

Maybe the people must be free to choose which money they want to use. The excuse "terrorism" is a bit funny becouse they want to lock down the privacy and people rights becouse one of each million people is bad....

Anyway I am sure that in the nets months and years the majority of countries will banned coins like Monero and Zcash but it's not the end, Bitcoin was invented to be unstoppable so, privacy coins are too.

In addition in really free countries, like Switzerland, the privacy coins will be banned more later when the European Union deep state threat them like they did with another things to kill the people liberty.

What’s the difference between Monero, Zcash, and BEAM?

First, we would like to emphasize that we have a lot of respect for our friends at Zcash and Monero and the activities that these projects have completed so far in order to promote the needed financial confidentiality in crypto. We will organize our comparison by looking at three parameters: confidentiality, scalability, and auditability. The comparison is quite advanced and does not claim to be complete — there are other played factors besides the three we have chosen to address. Monero: Confid

The Secure Bulletin Board System (SBBS) implementation in Beam

Beam is built on Mimblewimble protocol¹, a wonderful piece of technology that achieves confidentiality while significantly improving blockchain scalability. However, this comes with a significant caveat. In Mimblewimble there are no addresses, and transactions need to be built interactively by the participating parties. That poses a challenge: if Alice wants to send money to Bob, both their wallets have to connect and perform the necessary actions. Creating a direct socket connection every time
