Secret revealed

John Dobbertin, the last still unknown founding member of the privacy coin Zcash, revealed his true identity. The whistleblower Edward Snowden is said to be hiding behind the pseudonym:

John Dobbertin = Edward Snowden.

He is the sixth, as yet unknown founding member of the Privacy Coins Zcash (ZCH). Edward Snowden revealed this to the news service Forbes in a short video.

Under the pseudonym John Dobbertin, the 38-year-old is said to have taken part in a kind of ceremony in which a total of six participants set the course for Zcash's focus on privacy.

The act required the six participants to complete a sequence of specific tasks

This included destroying Zcash's private creation key. Edward Snowden is said to have played an essential role in making the completion of the tasks even more secure.
"When we look at cryptocurrencies, we generally see that the cryptographic properties are used to ensure that it's a fair ledger, but not that it was used to ensure that it was a private ledger," Snowden explained in the video, which is available to Forbes. "Bitcoin, as you know, is an open ledger. The problem with that is that you can't have truly free trade if you don't have private trade. And you can't have a free society without free trade," the whistleblower further explained.

Privacy Coins like Zcash (ZCH) or Monero (XMR) are gaining popularity due to the war in Ukraine.
