Anonymity has been the most critical feature of the blockchain and cryptocurrency over the years. Privacy-inclined users in the BSC network will find Typhoon Network, a helpful privacy protocol.
Overall it is vital to proceed with caution when purchasing tokens that have just been listed. For those who have not already read our articles on safety in the BSC it is crucial to reference the following items, HERE and HERE.

What is Typhoon?
Typhoon protocol brings about the privacy features notable of privacy protocols like Monero, Pivx, and notably Tornado Cash into the Binance Smart Chain (BSC) network. Users who like to keep their identities anonymous will find this application quite helpful as the possibility of trace becomes relatively impossible within the protocol.
Typhoon is a dApp built on the BSC network to establish a privacy-centric system on BSC and bring it to mass adoption. In a time where everyone leaves a trail of information behind online, it has become quite challenging to stay truly anonymous. This is particularly harder on the blockchain, where transactions are open and transparent for everyone to view.
The project team has stated clearly in its whitepaper that the project would focus primarily on privacy features for its users. It has no plan to take on features or projects that would compromise users’ anonymity, such as token swaps, lending, or other Defi derivatives.
The protocol works by letting users’ transactions mix with each other so that all an observer sees is a mix of a long list of identical transactions coming in and out from the Typhoon smart contract. The more people that use the protocol, the bigger the anonymity set of transactions and the harder it becomes to figure out where a transaction comes from.
The privacy process is achieved in the following setup:
Deposit: Deposit your BNB into the Typhoon smart contract and receive a randomly generated piece of text (note) back.
Proxy: The BNB sits inside the smart contract. Other transactions will come into the smart contract to mix up and provide anonymity during this time. This acts as a password for retrieving this particular deposit.
Withdraw: Withdrawal is made to a different connected web3 wallet, e.g., Metamask, Binance Chain wallet; upon providing the note, the smart contract will transfer the BNB to the wallet of your choice.
Typhoon privacy protocol is made possible by utilizing zkSNARK and zero-knowledge technology to enable private transactions on an otherwise public ledger. zkSNARK is a novel form of zero-knowledge cryptography that makes it possible to prove possession of information without revealing the information.
