Stealth addresses for non-interactive payments

Tari has supported one-sided payments for some time. This allows someone to send funds across the Tari network without needing the recipient to be online. The downside to this was the that receiver’s public key is visible on the blockchain; a knock on privacy.

To deal with this, Tari recently introduced support for stealth addresses. Now you get the best of both worlds: Non-interactive payments AND randomised payment addresses.

See them in action in this short video!
