Railgun was founded by Emmanuel Goldstein as a way to enable privacy-preserving smart contract interactions on the smart contract.

Zero-knowledge proof technology is a system whereby a prover can prove something to a verifier without revealing the details about the thing being verified. Railgun is the latest example of a zero-knowledge proving system used in Railgun – groth16 – and is being developed by Ishan Pandey.
