Craig Wright, the self-proclaimed “Satoshi” and chief scientist at nChainÂ is now claiming that he is developing the technology to make Zcash and Monero transactions traceable.
Dr.Craig Steven Wright along with Coingeek’s Calvin Ayre is one of the main proponents of Bitcoin SV which is a Hard fork of Bitcoin Cash (BCH). The narrative crafted around BSV is that Bitcoin is not supposed to be anonymous or go against law enforcement but work with the government in order to gain mass adoption.

He then took on Twitter to claim that he is working on a “Technology” solution that will make the privacy coins more traceable, he said that he will be giving the “Technology” to law enforcement and help them to catch criminals that are using these privacy coins.Yes, I can make ZCash and Monero completely traceable… A means to start monitoring it all and attributing.
