How anonymous/private are transactions, versus say Monero, Zcash?

I don’t see any mention of addressing privacy/anonymity in the front pages. How does Algorand compare to Monero or Zcash’s anonymity features?

I think Algorand is better.:wink:

At launch, Algorand transactions will be no more anonymous than those in Ethereum or Bitcoin – there just hasn’t yet been enough time to implement Zcash- or Monero-like anonymity features. Anonymous transactions are on our roadmap though – we definitely want them long-term.

also worth mentioning here is that when algorand open sources their blockchain the mimblewimble protocol of grin/beam could also be implemented with algorand POS/consensus but it is a different blockchain format and would require a new chain
