Zerocoin is a proposed cryptocurrency.[1] that would be provably anonymous. It will employ cryptographic accumulators and digital commitments with zero-knowledge proofs to eliminate trackable linkage in the Bitcoin blockchain, which would make the currency anonymous and untraceable.[2][3][4][5]

Zerocoin was originally proposed as an add-on to Bitcoin.[6] On 16 November 2013 it was announced that Zerocoin had been modified to reduce its proof size by 98% and that it would be released as its own cryptocurrency.[7]

Zerocoin was developed at the Johns Hopkins University Information Security Institute, in Baltimore, by Ian Miers, Christina Garman, Matthew Green, and Aviel Rubin.[8][9]
