Monero Research Lab Unveils Subaddresses for Additional Transaction Privacy

The Monero developers and the community continue to make major strides. According to a new whitepaper issued by the Monero Research Lab, subaddresses will be coming to this ecosystem pretty soon. It is an interesting venture, to say the least, as it will allow for the extension of wallet addresses. There are some clear benefits to using subaddresses, and it doesn’t appear this functionality is present in any other cryptocurrency right now.

MONERO SUBADDRESSES ARE A BIG DEAL

The way most people think of a cryptocurrency wallet address is rather straightforward. It is generated to send, store, and receive currency. Users can generate as many different wallet addresses as they like, assuming their client allows for it. Some altcoins even allow for stealth addresses, which are for one-time use only. All of those features work just fine, but there is room for future improvement as well. After all, there are plenty of innovative projects being worked on in the world of cryptocurrency.

The Monero Research Lab has drafted a new whitepaper which explores the concept of subaddresses. This type of address is an extension of a wallet address generated by the user. All subaddresses are to be derived from the same master wallet address. More importantly, to the outside world, there will be no link between the subaddresses and the master wallet address. Monero is one of the currencies focusing on privacy and anonymity, which explains why its team is taking this particular approach.

Any incoming transaction can be scanned to determine whether or not it belongs to one’s subaddresses. It is a major improvement in the privacy department, to say the very least. We have seen a similar development in the Bitcoin world, as BIP32 introduced a similar feature. It is this particular feature which leads some people to believe that Bitcoin has privacy-oriented aspects, even though that is not entirely correct. For Monero users, the introduction of subaddresses removes the need to generate new wallets with new seeds every single time. It is a big step forward that shouldn’t be overlooked.
