Binance moves to ZK-Snarks for HbR
Binance had stated that their Proof of Reserves (PoR) uses Merkle Trees so that users can easily know that their assets are held in custody 1:1. However, in February 2023, the leading cryptocurrency exchange announced a significant upgrade to its HbR system by including ZK-SNARKs. Binance stated that this would improve the privacy and security of user data while the verification process is in progress.
In light of this particular Binance news, the price of BNB is currently trading hands at $288, representing a gain of 0.01% in the past 24 hours, as opposed to a 4.73% decline in the past seven days .
