Zero-Knowledge Proof

What does Zero-Knowledge Proof mean in crypto terms?

Zero-Knowledge Proof (ZKP) is a cryptographic method allowing one party (the prover) to prove to another party (the verifier) that they know a specific value or possess certain information, without revealing any details about the value or information itself. This technique is fundamental in enhancing privacy in blockchain transactions, as it enables the verification of transactions and the authenticity of assets without exposing the underlying data. ZKPs are widely used in privacy-centric cryptocurrencies and secure communication protocols to protect user data while maintaining network integrity.
