  • The technology giant, Samsung, its blockchain arm is enhancing its privacy.
  • A new partnership was announced with QEDIT to leverage zero-knowledge proofs (ZKPs).  


Samsung SDS, the enterprise technology arm of the South Korean giant, is enhancing privacy on its Nexledger blockchain with zero-knowledge proofs (ZKPs).  

The organisation noted that they have entered into a partnership with Israel-based QEDIT, as they look to record and authenticate the transfer of assets on a shared ledger without revealing underlying confidential information.  

It is a move which looks to tackle one of the challenges facing companies that are adopting distributed ledger technology. At present resulting in the broadcasting transactions to a network, which puts them at risk of exposing sensitive client data and tipping their hands to competitors.
