Alan Scott, a researcher at Railgun, delves into Vitalik Buterin's recent endorsement of Railgun (CRYPTO:RAIL), emphasising its advanced privacy features for decentralised finance (DeFi).

Railgun utilises zero-knowledge proofs (zk-SNARKs) to ensure user privacy in DeFi transactions, allowing users to prove ownership without revealing sensitive information.

Notably, Railgun enables private cross-contract calls, empowering users to engage in various DeFi activities while preserving privacy.

Buterin's endorsement has energised the Railgun team, spurring new initiatives and driving execution, enhancing the project's credibility within the DeFi space.

Railgun's upcoming updates, including Version 3 with modular architecture and Railgun Connect for universal privacy in Ethereum, aim to simplify private transactions, making them as accessible as public ones without compromising user privacy.
