Monero’s developers have been working on various new features meant to improve the privacy-oriented currency. One of the developments to keep an eye on goes by the name of Bulletproofs.

This particular feature has proven difficult to integrate, although an initial security audit by Kudelski Security shows the implementation is going according to plan. Improving upon an existing cryptocurrency ecosystem usually requires a major technology overhaul.

That is easier said than done, as adding new features to existing code can be very tricky. Even for experienced developers, challenges will always be present.

That is also part of the fun for most coding enthusiasts who get involved in cryptocurrency these days. For Monero’s developers, the current plan is to allow for faster transactions which are smaller in size on the blockchain.

Additionally, they aim to make this process as cheap and efficient as possible. Introducing such features in a blockchain which is primarily focused on privacy and anonymity is a daunting task, which explains why it has taken the developers a lot of time to incorporate the Bulletproofs technology.
