Privacy is a hugely important aspect in crypto and it's often ignored altogether. But I'd argue for a crypto to become successful as a currency it needs to have robust private transactions. Otherwise users run the risk of their physical identity being connected to their addresses, and by extension they risk getting robbed, physically intimidated to revealing their private keys, being extorted by malicious entities and just having their embarrassing purchases becoming public knowledge.
Stellar has plans to implement lightning network and that will increase Stellar's privacy. My understanding is that the parties of the lightning network participating in the transactions will be the only ones aware of the transaction flows. But it still not perfect privacy as it lets third parties inspect people's transactions. I'm also not sure if it will offer enough guarantee of no outside party being able to deduce the connection between the sending and receiving addresses unless there is huge amount of traffic in the network.
My question is, will LN be enough to guarantee acceptable privacy, and are there any other measures being planned to support privacy?
