We could look at https://metrics.torproject.org/ for inspiration
Self-auditing tools to check your privacy score
Add an option to randomize the time at which a transaction is sent
What can benefit the Zcash community to fully adopt Z-addresses?
Coming up with metrics
Shielded transaction: Z address to Z address. The only thing that is exposed is the transaction fee.
Run Zcash on TOR to be safe from leaking IP information.
Point 1: User interface to enhance the perception of shielded address
Point 2: Institutions prefer T-addresses due to technical reasons, it’s cheap computationally. Without institutions supporting Z-addresses it’ll be too hard to get it off the ground.
Point 3: Business analytics (understanding adoption) and metrics on how the network operates and what the community actually wants/needs.
Ideas for metrics:
IP address linkability Fee linkability Linkability via peer preference through transactions entering the mempool
Ideas for improving privacy:
Privacy score: giving users a privacy score in their wallet (gamifying UX - give people a bad score if they are doing something wrong)
