Tron is set to feature zero knowledge-based privacy through the work of the TRONZ team.

A trusted setup ceremony is set to be conducted soon, which Tron claims in a Jan. 17 blog post will "Set a new Guinness World Record."

TRONZ is a privacy initiative that is set to integrate Zk-SNARKs, the core privacy technology of Zcash, in the Tron blockchain.

While the team claims its implementation is the "Most efficient, and least resource-consuming privacy protocol in the world," no technical details were released.

Built with the "Advancement of blockchain technology" in mind, the TRONZ team has allegedly "Developed and tested the privacy protocol on the Tron network." A mainnet release is set to occur soon, according to the post.

The goal of TRONZ is to introduce the privacy protocol to Tron smart contracts, allowing developers to introduce private data within them.

The MPC technology will also be used to conduct the trusted setup ceremony, as it allows signers to safely participate in the creation of the parameters required for the setup.

A look at the Tron GitHub page shows a variety of repositories directly "Forked," i.e. copied, from Zcash source code.

Tron's version of librustzcash is in a similar position, save for a pull request to merge a recent code branch from Zcash.

It is possible that the Tron team worked only on the original Tron repositories to integrate the privacy technology.
