According to a tweet from Justin Ehrenhofer, a member of Monero developer community, the project has refused Triptych’s solution in favor of simpler implementations.
Triptych CCS development has been put on hold on purpose as it is unlikely that Monero will actually use it.
As the expert notes, there are systems that are much easier to implement, so Monero is likely to go the other way. Thus, users will see a Lelantus Spark or Seraphis solution in the near future.
Note that the next update scheduled for late November / early December includes Bulletproofs +, board upgrades, ring size increases, and various other privacy improvements.
Recall, Triptych solution was first unveiled in September 2020 as a response to analyst firm CipherTrace’s announcement of a Monero transaction monitoring tool. Triptych uses a zero-knowledge proof system, creating special ring signatures for confidential transaction protocols.
Monero developers are constantly working to ensure the privacy of users, which is very important in an era of massive and intrusive surveillance.
The team continues to refine and strengthen the “steel wall” that separates Monero from other public blockchains such as Bitcoin and Ethereum.
