Bitcoin is the first e-cash system to see widespread adoption. While Bitcoin offers the potential for new types of financial interaction, it has significant limitations regarding privacy. Specifically, because the Bitcoin transaction log is completely public, users' privacy is protected only through the use of pseudonyms. In this paper we propose Zerocoin, a cryptographic extension to Bitcoin that augments the protocol to allow for fully anonymous currency transactions. Our system uses standard… Expand
Anonymous E-Cash Transaction is using Bitcoin
Crypto-currency is variety of digital and virtual currency on a technology is understood as Blockchain. Bitcoin is understood as peer to peer payment network. Bitcoin victimization payment dealingExpand
Anonymity for Decentralized Electronic Cash Systems
In 2008 Bitcoin was introduced as the first decentralized electronic cash system and it has seen widespread adoption since it became fully functional in 2009. This thesis describe the Bitcoin system,Expand
Zerocash: Decentralized Anonymous Payments from Bitcoin (extended version)
Bitcoin is the rst digital currency to see widespread adoption. Although payments are conducted between pseudonyms, Bitcoin cannot oer strong privacy guarantees: payment transactions are recorded inExpand
Increasing Anonymity in Bitcoin
TLDR
This work presents a method to enhance anonymity in bitcoin-type cryptocurrencies using a new primitive known as composite signatures, based on the hardness of the Computation Diffie-Hellman assumption in bilinear maps. Expand
Preserving transaction privacy in bitcoin
TLDR
A framework to hide the amounts by employing the Paillier cryptosystem for encryption and decryption is proposed, which achieves delicate anonymity and prevents active and passive attacks, which effectively improves the transaction privacy. Expand
Zerocash : Decentralized Anonymous Payments from Bitcoin ∗
Bitcoin is a widely used digital coin that allows user to have direct payments without any third party. Since all transactions are done between public addresses and are linked together by a publicExpand
Certified Bitcoins
TLDR
This paper proposes a certification system for Bitcoin that offers an opt-in guarantee to send and receive bitcoins only to/ from certified users and control of creation of bitcoins addresses (certified users) by trusted authorities. Expand

TLDR
Based on this paper's findings, CoinJoin emerges as the best approach for anonymizing Bitcoins today. Expand
Anonymizing Bitcoin Transaction
TLDR
This work proposes a protocol which minimises the relationship between the transactions to protect the information of the payer from the curious payee and to make the transactions accountable. Expand
Authenticated Key Exchange over Bitcoin
TLDR
The idea is to leverage the Bitcoin's append-only ledger as an additional layer of authentication between previously confirmed transactions, which naturally leads to a new category of AKE protocols that bootstrap trust entirely from the block chain. Expand

Bitter to Better - How to Make Bitcoin a Better Currency
TLDR
An in-depth investigation is performed to understand what made Bitcoin so successful, while decades of research on cryptographic e-cash has not lead to a large-scale deployment. Expand
An Analysis of Anonymity in the Bitcoin System
TLDR
It is shown that the two networks derived from Bitcoin's public transaction history have a non-trivial topological structure, provide complementary views of the Bit coin system and have implications for anonymity. Expand
Two Bitcoins at the Price of One? Double-Spending Attacks on Fast Payments in Bitcoin
TLDR
This paper analyzes the security of using Bitcoin for fast payments, where the time between the exchange of currency and goods is short, and proposes a lightweight countermeasure that enables the detection of doublespending attacks in fast transactions. Expand
Compact E-Cash
TLDR
This paper presents efficient off-line anonymous e-cash schemes where a user can withdraw a wallet containing 2 coins each of which she can spend unlinkably, and offers exculpability of users, that is, the bank can prove to third parties that a user has double-spent. Expand
Dynamic Accumulators and Application to Efficient Revocation of Anonymous Credentials
TLDR
This work provides a construction of a dynamic accumulator and an efficient zero-knowledge proof of knowledge of an accumulated value, and proves their security under the strong RSA assumption. Expand
Efficient Accumulators without Trapdoor Extended Abstracts
TLDR
In 1994 Benaloh and de Mare introduced the notion of one way accumulators that allow to construct efficient protocols for proving membership in a list and related problems like time stamping and authentication as no central trusted authority is (should be) needed. Expand
Quantitative Analysis of the Full Bitcoin Transaction Graph
TLDR
This paper answers for the first time a variety of interesting questions about the typical behavior of users, how they acquire and how they spend their bitcoins, the balance of bitcoins they keep in their accounts, andHow they move bitcoins between their various accounts in order to better protect their privacy.

An Efficient System for Non-transferable Anonymous Credentials with Optional Anonymity Revocation
TLDR
This paper proposes a practical anonymous credential system that is based on the strong RSA assumption and the decisional Diffie-Hellman assumption modulo a safe prime product and is considerably superior to existing ones. Expand
Auditable, Anonymous Electronic Cash Extended Abstract
TLDR
Most anonymous, electronic cash systems are signature-based, which means that in these systems the bank has the technical ability to issue unreported, valid money. Expand
